My wife and I frequently enjoy having dinner in the lounge on the 1st and 3rd Saturdays of the month when they have live Jazz from 6:30 to 10:30. When they have Roger Harris it is like being at the Blue Note in New York. No cover, no minimum, as at Andy's on Hubbard in Chicago, and the ambiance is... More

Went here with a friend for lunch. It is beautifully decorated & we were greeted quite warmly. I wanted to go here because of their menu. I love Pho & not many places have it. We started off with 2 different spring roll appetizers. One had a peanut sauce the other had a plum sauce. They were excellent. I got... More

This restaurant is tastefully decorated. The layout is nice. Our server, Karen, was fairly knowledgeable. I ordered the Asparagus Lovers Scallops & Shrimps. It was good but slightly salty, probably too much soy sauce. My husband ordered the flank steak which had the same salty issue. We waited a little longer than I expected for the food to be served...

I took wife there for a date night surprise. I'm the one who was surprised. The menu is diverse French-Asian and the descriptions only hint at the wonderful beauty and delicious aroma and taste if the food. Drinks are unique and tasty. If you've never been please save up a couple of bucks and go of go. You will be... More

I went with a group. Service was great and the place is nice, but the price was outrageous for food that I could pay less than half the price for down the street (and better). The noodles were a strange texture and the dish was too salty. Sangria was good. Overall, I would try it again,but something different for sure.

A great restaurant! Menu is very large. We had an appetizer of asparagus wraps. I had the best Pad Thai that I have ever eaten. There were so many things on the menu that I wanted to try, I wish I lived closer to go often. My husbands was also very good, some chicken with pineapple, veggies and a peanut... More

I travel to Merrillville for business and this restaurant is the key reason I don't starve when I am in town. You can make a meal out of the appetizers--there are at least two dozen options, and everything I have tried is divine. I really like their seafood crispy rolls. For my entree I usually go with the spicy asparagus... More

My husband is from Indiana and when we first started dating he really did not know that non-chain restaurants existed. This was a slight dilemma because I don't like the food at most chains!When we go to visit his family it is very rare that we are able to find good non-chain restaurant options until our last trip. We will... More

I travel through merrillville just to go to this place. Their Mango salad is to die for. They also have a spicy curry that is really phenomenal. They are quite full, so I would book it on open table before getting there. Service is top notch and so is the ambiance. I dont sit on the bar side but I... More
