I was taking a class at Mosaic Arts, Inc. right around the corner and when lunch time rolled around the owner suggested Hawkers as one of the nearby lunch options. One of my friends taking the class with me heartily agreed with the recommendation so the four of us ( 3 "virgins" and one experienced diner) headed off down the street. All of us are fairly adventurous and we don't mind sharing so Hawkers fitted us to a T. Everything is relatively inexpensive and the portions are tapas style. We enjoyed the roti so much we opted for a second round. By the end of the meal the table was littered with our small plates and we were ready to head back to class. The atmosphere is very casual, "urban-Asian" style. The wait staff is very helpful and attentive.

The outside looks like a defunct Chinese buffet restaurant (which I believe it is); the inside looks like a slightly upscale version of a Chipotle's (stainless steel, painted concrete, and sleek lined laminate seating); but the food is a far cry from a chain restaurant. Probably the closest cousin of this inventive "small plates" menu would be the modern food truck. But at Hawkers you get all the innovative pairings of flavor with seating, table service, and (best of all in Orlando!!) air conditioning. We loved everything we ordered -- the crispy roasted pork was particularly flavorful, and the fried green beans with five-spice flavors were so good even the picky-eaters in your bunch are sure to love them. The curry laksa noodle bowl was also super flavorful. But the hands-down favorite at our table was the Roti Canai -- a flaky, crispy grilled flatbread with an amazing spicy dipping sauce. We all agreed that we could have eaten our weight in the stuff! Though there was nothing wrong with it, the spring salad was the least inspired of the dishes we tried -- tasty if you're in a veggie mood, but why bother when there are so many other exotic options. Give it a try...you're gonna love it!

Great concept in a crisp clean setting. Loved the variety and execution of dishes but was disappointed with the bahn-mi sandwich which was dry and tasted flat. Portions were ample for the tiny prices and service was outstanding. The roti starter and dessert are knockouts. Potstickers were fresh and light but would have loved to see bits of scallion or veggie in with the meat. Sounds like foodie nitpicking to me, so go and enjoy! We sure will be back.

What a treat for either two or a large group. Sample and share from an enormous menu. when you get the check, the only shock is how small it is. Since finding this gem I go often.

In the heart of Orlando great small portions of well priced Asian food. The small servings and prices make it a great experience to order and try different dishes and share. My family of 2 teens and my husband and I all loved it.
