Well, I don’t know where to start, the building is just beautiful and tastefully decorated, the food was magnificent and service was great. I was very impressed.

What a fantastic find. From the outside this restaurant doesn't look like much but it is truly beautiful!! The meal was amazing and our server was ace too. The food comes out as and when it is ready and is a awesome concept. A must go if you visit NYC!

Good food, a bit on the expensive side for what it is, but overall liked everything we got. The place was very crowded and music was pretty loud so difficult have a table-wide conversation. Maybe it was where we were sitting. Waiter and service was excellent.

Would come back to try a few more dishes.

Pretty cool place, overpriced (50 bucks for rice and chicken) - but it’s NYC and in a Meatpack.... unfortunately I got food poisoned from the chicken so can’t be more than a 1 in rating

Had dinner with some coworkers on a Saturday night. We got delayed so missed our reservation but got seated in the lounge area which actually was very nice. Decent wine list. Had a really good evening. Giving it a 3 star because the food was average which was quite surprising given the prices. We had the chili chicken, whole sea bass, tuna tartare and dumplings. All were average - for this price range we expected better
