Tried various foods from Ramen, Curry, Korean beef. Food was delicious and portions more than we expected. Lively and busy. Service was a bit slow due to amount of people but we were there to enjoy the food and atmosphere.

We were given a table next to the door-it was soooo cold, our server did nor really care about us- he was busy flirting with more attractive clients- too bad because we would have ordered dessert. But this said all food was way way too...More

It's definitely an interesting (and successful) approach to offer a range of Asian foods "tapas-style". Allowing us to try a variety of dishes. My favorite was the octopus salad. Other faves were the homemade Thai Sausage and the Sun-Dried Beef with Sticky Rice. The decor...More

This was a great place. I technically wouldn’t call it a tapas restaurant. It’s definitely an Asian inspired restaurant, but done a lot better than your local corner take-out. They have a large selection of gluten-free and vegan options, and will accommodate you as best...More

Asian tapas is really interesting concept. We ordered a few tapas dishes like kahapuli chicken, tandoori lobster, corn fritters in green curry sauce, etc. Everything was tasty and fresh tandoori lobster was the best among tapas dishes. Love their food presentation.

Best chicken Penang EVER!!! Service was impeccable and hats off to the chefs. The chocolate vegan tart was amazing as well. Coming back this spring and Mia will be my first stop.

Excellent quality of authentic Thai and Indian food. Had the chicken satay and pork buns for appetizer and the Dahl and pappadam for dinner. Dahl was topped with ghee and fantastic. Would recommend for business or causal date.
