    Enjoy the beautiful autumn weather, sit outside at a cabana and laugh at the losers across the way fighting for a table at Ruggles Green while you sip your cocktail and nosh on your yummy appetizers.

    Was surprised when I went to the bathroom to discover it's coed, the stalls are very private though. The tuna tower was pretty good, lemongrass steak and fries was great.

    Every Thursday and Saturday DJ E-Rik is in the mix from 10-2 that plays top 40s, house, dub step, hip hop, old school and more! Come check it out!

    The general seating is rather crowded and trades in a sense of exotic refinement for a clubby vibe, complete with scantily-clad bar servers, top 40 music and a unisex bathroom area.

    Order two or three things and share family style. Much more fun and you will avoid the difficulty of choosing just one of the many delicious things on the menu.

    The chicken lollipops and the crispy chicken (ask for a double serving of the sublime jalapeño sauce) are not to be missed

    Try the Chicken Satay, Indian Street Noodles, and Tamarind Beef Tenderloin. Very well done. Authentic to me, and I lived overseas. :-)

    Depending on the bartender your bill can fluctuate. They need to get their shit together. I got three different prices for the same order.
