“Good food - nice bar & music”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 2, 2013

We had several bites, mostly by recommendation of the friendly staff. Fried rice with tuna and the lamb skewers were the most memorable.

Madeleines as desert is a real must.

Pricing on the high end of asian cuisine. but all in all worth it.

“Hip and delicious!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 19, 2013 via mobile

From the moment my party of three sat down at the bar to the moment we left our table two hours later, we were witness to very high quality food and very personal service! The fried sticky rice with steak tartar was memorable. We would definitely return!

“Worth a visit but check your credit card limit first!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 17, 2013

Undoubtedly the food is very good. The spicy peruvian tuna on chips is divine, the green tea lamb fantastic, the shrimps, the gyoza... everything great. Wines are extremely expensive but the selection is good. It's a cool place, good to see and to be seen and you do pay for it. For a special night.

“Excellent but expensive”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 10, 2013

Probably one of the best Asiatic restaurants I’ve tried but the wine and the drinks were too expensive and that made our bill go up.
The food is excellent. I recommend the crispy rice and tartar, the soft shell crab roll and spicy tuna roll. As a dessert the madeleine’s. Leave space for them, they are totally worth a try.
Our bill added up to 90eur each (too much for what we had)

“Overpriced and overrated. Watch out - thieves!!!!!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed November 7, 2013

Way overpriced and way overrated. The quality of the food is mediocre at best. My jacket was stolen from the restaurant! Security is useless. The place apparently tolerates and welcomes thieves. The bill for two person dinner was 400 EUR. The place is far from deserving one tenth of that for the poor quality and customer service it offers! Don't go, you'll regret it.
