“Big flavours. Fun atmosphere”
Reviewed January 14, 2014

Yummy restaurant in happening Park Slope. The menu is ideal for sharing and is great for those with an adventurous streak. We started with a nice glass of prosecco and the shrimp toast, with the yummy twist of an egg on top. Followed by the lobster bao, the kimchi chicken wings and waffles and the sriracha tater tots. All so good. The friendly service is great, too. It was mobbed when we went in but the staff got us to a table quickly. Definitely worth the trip from Manhattan.

“Good food & liked the vibe!”
Reviewed December 26, 2013 via mobile

Had dinner here with friends & enjoyed it. No reservations taken means you have to wait a while for a table but it's worth the wait. Loved the vibe and the food was good too. My favorite part of meal was actually the starters - hawaiian buns & the samoosas. I washed this down with a Brooklyn Sling cocktail. I would return.

“Average Asian Fusion Living Off of Reality Show Chef”
Reviewed November 29, 2013

What is it about the power of television that makes people nuts enough to wait an hour just to eat at a restaurant run by a chef who won a reality TV show? Owner Dale Talde won "Top Chef" and that alone has people rushing the doors even though he's rarely in the kitchen.
Too bad the food isn't more winning. This Asian fare is more gimmicky than inventive. Everything sounds better than it is. The Pretzel Pork & Chive Dumplings are a perfect example. Do we really need pretzel bread dumplings? There were chewy and not much more.

“Top interesting food and service”
Reviewed November 12, 2013

Everything is a little bit different but quite delicious. Active and noisy at times but that makes it great for talking kids for early dinner. We had a wait but got appetizers at the bar so no problems. Wine a bit pricey but good. Great to share several dishes and marvelous tastes! Fun place, good food, would certainly go again!

“Great brunch in Brooklyn”
Reviewed November 6, 2013

I came here on a Sunday before work for brunch. I definitely love this place for the service and the food. We ordered a couple of dishes between 3 people. We had the pork shoulder, fried rice, bfast ramen, dumplings, and another dish. All the dishes were great and wish I could eat more but I was full. Definitely come early with a big group.
