Description: Gigi's Asian Bistro & Dumpling Bar is located in The Galleria with entrances from the street on Westheimer and the interior of the Galleria. The menu is created to give your palate a tour of authentic Asian Flavors from China, Thailand, Vietnam, Singapore, and Maylasia in a setting that is handsome with a sexy, Asian vibe. If you are a group of 6-10 persons, ask for "Alley" tables, where each cubbyhole is curtained off from prying eyes. 15,000 silk cherry blossoms hang in the sky of our main dining room, "The Cherry Blossom Room," creating a warm and elegant atmosphere. Gigi's signature dishes are Heavenly Beef, Shaking Beef, Coconut Green Curry Chicken, Crispy Whole Fish and Japanese Eggplant. From our Dim Sum menu, guests enjoy ShuMai (shrimp & crabmeat), shrimp dumplings, & Chicken Potstickers. Quench your thirst on our chilled Lychee Martinis & Singapore Slings.

“Mostly Thai Cuisine”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 21, 2013

The name is a bit misleading. I have expected a wide variety of asian dishes, but found mostly Thai dishes on their menu. It was OK with me, since I really like the Thai food, but my kids wanted to have something Chinese, a little nit less spicy. They ended up ordering dumplings and they were delicious.

“unfairly treated”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 13, 2013

I've traveled the world and never written a review. But I want readers to know that we were very poorly treated by the ownership and waitstaff there and have no idea why. Our guess is that they were hoping for higher paying clientele as we were not ordering drinks. They were very impatient with the slightest of questions about the menu such as "is this dish grilled or fried". In fact, they were so impatient that we were fairly certain that they tampered with our food. We sat near the kitchen and caught several exchanges that indicated that they did. The experience put a big damper on our vacation.

One of my favorite restaurants in Houston, awesome decor for dates! Definitely order the Pad Thai and Return of the Phoenix.

“what a disappointment!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 12, 2013

I like Asian food very much, but this was a terrible experience: food was cold, the waiter had no idea what so ever about asian food, and it took foe ever to get our orders. Don't go.
