I have stayed numerous times in a hotel in the area for work and have walked passed this restaurant but never made it up the stairs and into the restaurant. I have to say it looks very welcoming from the street. This evening as I...More

We went here with a larger group. Got seated in the top room. Decoration is OK, nothing extravagant but good enough. Service was kind. Food was not exactly spectacular but different enough from the average to be enjoyable. I would not make a detour for...More

Small place tucked away near Dupont Circle. 'Pan-Asian' menu - with choices from Thai, Vietnamese, Chinese, Japanese and Malaysian cuisines. This suited our family very well when we went to celebrate a young adult birthday. 6:30 pm reservation - no one else was dining on...More

The restaurant is close to the hotel and easy to get too. Not too much seating. The sushi was good, as was the satay. Great for a quick bite.

Lady & I went for dinner, along with Mrs Jones the service dog. No questions asked about the dog - which we always appreciate. It was a quiet night as was over Easter weekend but service was still attentive and the food very fresh. We...More

The food here is not very expensive. You can have a meal between $15-20. That does not include drinks or appetizers. I wouldn't recommend this place because the quality of food is pathetic. Sushi didn't taste like sushi. I also tried the Basmati rice stir...More
