The place looks fancy and the silver blue atmosphere was really nice as decor. The food was delicious I would give 10/10 points for the mozzarella appetizer. The dishes are small but in my opinion worth the price. For main course I chose the salmon it was amazing. Unfortunately the staff was simply terrible. There was no host for about... More

We did enjoy the samosas, lamb shank, and duck breast. Service was very good, but the bar atmosphere detracted from the dining experience.

We visited here on a Thursday evening, not very busy. The place itself seems unsure of whether it's a bar or a restaurant, so my expectations were low. When the food came, all doubts went out of the door- the flavors were subtle, lovely combinations and just the right amount of spice. I started with duck samosa, delicious, but a... More

We started out with cocktails from the menu that were very tasty! Then we had oysters that were so fresh we could have eaten them all night! But we decided to try the wings and tacos. Dear god, they were so good! We went for happy hour so the prices was unbeatable. Our bartenders, Kari and Sean, were amazing which... More

I went here with a friend on a Thursday night. Let me start with the good. We both had the braised lamb shank, which was beyond delicious. Heavenly. Nicely served with whipped potatoes and braised vegetables. An excellent, dry Cabernet served by the glass, well priced. Attentive, charming service. Now, the not-so-good. Full disclosure: I am 70 years old, and... More

We were late on the bandwagon on this place. You walk in and the place reads like a nightclub, but not pretentious or unapproachable. Kari, our server greeted us with a smile. She was friendly and informative...and lets us know that fresh hot naan is on the way. Wow...what a way to start off. Unlike every other Indian restaurant I've... More

We came here with a prepaid dinner coupon. We enjoyed one appetizer, two entrees, one dessert and two glasses of wine. Food was tasty (Tandoori tacos, two fish entrees and one Mango dessert), all well prepared and presented. The service (Kari) was very nice and helpful. We enjoyed an extra bottle of wine (half price) and we were allow to... More

The concept is interesting but the execution is poor. It seemed an excuse for mixing random aromas, and charging a lot of money for very little cooking skills, and no attention to details. Take the duck: not crisp on the outside, chewy, with a too salty sauce tasting like some green curry leftovers. Or mussels and clams, a small portion... More

This restaurant is not hard to find as the name is prominent on the outside, but out of the way from the Bethesda Row places, and right across the street from a garage.The space has a frosty silver decor in a big room with a central bar. The very best thing about this place is as it should be, the... More
