This is my second trip to this little restaurant. Tapas style with friendly service. The second trip was a better experience. We had the tiger prawns bangam ribs and lettuce wraps. All very unique spice flavors. You NEED to like spice for this place. This is not a lot of food because it's tapas so don't come here looking for... More

It's not easy to find this place - or to park. But the tapas are worth the trouble. If you make it during happy hour, get the chili paneer. The Brussels sprouts are amazing.

So many people love this place, but I was disappointed. It's a tapas place, so dishes are small and made to share. The good: chicken wraps (great flavor), brussel sprouts (a unanimous favorite), tiger prawns, crab fried rice (really good flavor) and mushroom flatbread. The not so great: Korean chicken wings (just bad; no one ate them); Gangnam ribs (just... More

You wouldn't think this place is much to look at from the outside, in fact you might pass it by - but DON'T. Some of the most fantastic tapas I've ever had - strong Asian influence. We had the Chicken Bhoti, Steak Kabob, Tiger Prawns, Curry Wedges, Brussel Sprouts, and Samosas - fantastic. Their cocktails are pretty different too. The... More

I went here for a friends birthday it was a total of 18 of us and they were able to accomadate our reservation. We had our own little room in the restaurant. I ordered wings and pretty much ate off of everybody's plates. Food was soooo good.

The speciality is the tapas, it got some thailandese inspiration. We tried the yellow curry and ribs. The sangrias are so so, the option is the one with coco flavor.

The restaurant is on a side road that seems a little sketch, then when I didn't see anybody inside, I got nervous. Turns out the front area is a porch for outdoor seating, which no one was using yet. I regret not sitting there. Inside, it's one large room, with odd lighting, worn painted tile floors, rugs to provide some... More

From the moment you step in, this will be a wonderful experience. The food (meant for sharing) and cocktails (I recommend the spicy jalapeño-mango one) are delicious, and the ambience is very nice. I can't wait to go back!

Brussels sprouts were supposed to be a top dish, but I found it hard to chew. Szechwan Rib eye was hard to cut and not tender. The Szechwan sauce did not mesh with the the ribeye. Korean chicken wings are twice fried...couldn't eat it because it was too hard to bite into. I did'nt understand what the point of twice... More
