Summary: This Asian fusion restaurant combines Thai, Chinese, Korean, and Japanese cuisines and flavors with contemporary classics and preparations. There is a modern, colorful atmosphere with friendly staff and interesting cocktails during happy hour. There is a small bar in the front where you can sit for drinks and the dining area is fairly large and elegant. Closest Metro is Eastern Market.

It looks like there is an upstairs seating area, however we’ve never seen the entrance and didn’t notice anyone else escorted up that way. The kitchen area is semi-open in the middle where you can watch the chefs create your dishes. My entrĂ©e portion was a generous portion and size, cooked perfectly. I have tried the Pineapple Upside Down cocktail – which is like a Mojito made with pineapple juice and Thai basil instead of mint. I have been here twice so far and have enjoyed my meal tremendously each time.

What I ate:

Summer Roll
Thai classic of vegetables, vermicelli rice noodles, and shrimp
wrapped in a rice paper, served with a spicy peanut sauce

Fried Wonton
Chinese classic of vegetables and pork stuffed
in a wonton and then deep fried until golden brown and crunchy.

Lycheean Sea Bass
Pan seared sea bass served with a mixed green salad with
a Lychee vinaigrette and Korean chop che noodles.

Fried Cheesecake
Decadent cheesecake wrapped in a wonton wrapper and deep fried quickly.
Served with berries and whipped cream

Plus Keith ate:

Orange Beef
Fried cubes of beef in an orange glaze sauce served with white rice

Peking Duck Fajitas
Classic Peking duck sliced thick and served with thick tortillas and plum sauce
