“Had a great time trying some really tasty food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 27, 2009

I was part of a group and so was on a Prix Fixe menu. This afforded the opportunity to try many different items, but never saw a menu or the prices. Some standouts: bok choy, rib-meat skewers, clay pot chicken and beef, grapefruit salad, and the banana cake for dessert. I’m not a wine drinker, but others in the group were quite pleased with the selections. Fabulous setting and décor. Extremely friendly, attentive and helpful staff. Would definitely go back!

“Didn't get to check out...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 10, 2008

Didn't get to check out the wine list but saw "Calamansi" Bellini on the drink menu and I couldn't resist - just had have it (Calamansi - small citrus fruit, native of the Philippines). Pretty good and definitely reminded me of home... Very cool, a bit swanky Asian ambiance. Good service, great menu, not too pricey. Had the Hanoi Spiced Chilean Sea Bass. It was supposed to be eaten as a lettuce wrap but I had it with brown rice - melt in your mouth delicious. Also had a bite of the of the Grilled Kumquat Chicken and the Green Curry Chicken - both flavorful but found the Grilled Kumquat chicken a bit dry. And last but not least, the desserts - had a few bites of the Banana Custard Cake, Kulfi and Warm Chocolate Cake - yummy! Will definitely go back.
