The Kumquat martini is awesome and the avocado rolls were outstanding. The best item I tried was the sesame encrusted ahi tuna...would go back for just that... read more

Nice ambience, great food and excellent service. A gem off of the 'main strip' in Merrillville, Asparagus would make for a nice date or impressive business meeting. Interesting menu items, and a few things not listed. Ask about the chocolate egg rolls!

Although the restaurant doesn't look 5-star the food is definitely top quality. We had the Thai Egg Rolls, Beef Pho, Herb Panko Crusted Chicken, and Five Spice Duck. Everything tasted extremely good except my mom thought her duck lacked flavor. We also ordered Thai Tea and Tiramisu. I've never had tea like that before - it was different and delightful.... More

It probably was because I was there on a Saturday night that the restaurant was packed with a party of 20, another of 10, and another of 6 plus various other couples, but the service was extremely slow. We waited for 45 minutes for our first cocktail. I will say the wait staff was well informed about the menu and... More

You simply cannot find anything like this in Northern Indiana. Travelled over an hour just for this and I would do it again. Wine list is simple but accessible. Food selection is vast but they need a large menu to cover the huge range of the Chef! She is simply amazing. Classics like 5-Spice Duck are perfectly executed. Young lamb... More

Have now eaten here 4 times and has yet to disappoint. Great cocktails...expansive and creative menu....great service. Yes it's a tad pricey but worth it in my book and we eat out quite a bit.

I can't keep count how many times I've been to this place and brought different friends almost all the time. It's so pleasing from the ambiance to the food selection, that I'm delighted to suggest this restaurant everytime somebody wants a good dining experience. Not only are the foods delectable, they're in sufficient portion. The variety of cocktails are tasty... More

Absolutely packed tonight! One of many visits here. We sat at the bar. We had the pleasure of watching Sam and Tammy, the owners, work together behind the bar. I have been in business for myself for many years and in watching these two well you can just see the dedication and love they have. They are the leaders of... More
