I had to change our reservation 3 times (size kept increasing and time kept changing), and the person who answered the phone was always so friendly and patient with my ever-changing reservations. When we go there on a rainy night, the staff smiled and welcomed us to a unique table looking like it was made from a tree trunk. The atmosphere was unique and fun--the tables on the side of the restaurant are intimate and cute for dates and the large table in the center can hold a group up to 10 (that was us!). We ordered pretty much every tapa on the menu and shared among the 10 of us, so that was great because we got a sense for the range of the menu. Lots of vegetarian, seafood, and meat dishes to please everyone---loved the flavors and tastes that blended many different types of asian cuisine...from thai, to chinese, to japanese, to indian, to malaysian--we could taste aspects of all. Even our friends who do not usually like asian flavors found great things to try. Definitely coming back!
Highlights to order:
Roti and Curry: Enough for 2-3 people to share as an appetizer---great curry and warm rotis to dip the sauce in...really comforting.
Corn Fritters: If you love corn, they have nice big chunks of corn and are friend. I thought they were a bit too greasy, so probably wouldn't order them again because there were so many better options--but good if you need something vegetarian and filling.
Papaya Prawn Salad: So fresh, crisp, and refreshing--great to order as a complement to the spicier foods--definitely cools you down!
Root Fries---much better than regular fries---so flavorful and unique and different--you're out--eat something different than the norm! :)
Sweet Pumpkin Tempura: it's fall..and if you love pumpkin, this hits the spot.
Sweet Basil Mussels: favorite thing on the menu--the sauce is amazing--order extra bread so you can dip and finish up all the goodness in that sauce!! :)
My only complaint was timing--dishes came as they were ready--which was fine in the beginning...but there was a 15-20 minute break between the tapas and some of the larger entree dishes we ordered so most people had finished up or realized they were full...and then we just weren't really into the momentum to eat the entrees---looking back though, I would have been perfectly happy with just the tapas...the entrees were ok--but being able to try a variety of things and enjoy tapas with friends was great!
Enjoy! Definitely coming back!
