    Those 5$ lychee martinis!!! By the time me and my friends ordered 4th round I realized I loved it so much not because of the drink itself but because of the fruit! Lol. Cocktail itself is good too)

    The chicken satay & spicy chicken dumplings are great...the calamari is a southeast Asian take on the traditional Italian app but is really good as well. Happy hour is 'til 10pm so that's a plus too!

    Really good Lychee Martinis. If you have a large party (i.e., more than 4) and want to sit in the lounge area, make reservations in advanced as they are always reserved.

    The south-east Asian inspired small plates and tapas are great for earlier in the night when the crowd isn’t so busy, but are all flavorsome & delicious cocktail bites. Read more

    Come in, relax & have a $4 Lychee Martini. If you're here that's your drink & you're looking to have a few. The food here is weak but the happy hour deals are extensive so you won't notice.

    What can I say "lychee martini anyone". The lychee martinis are awesome couple with happy hour until 10pm. The atmosphere and people are cool.

    It's a tiny place. If coming with a huge crowd, make a reservation. If not, watch out for waiters glaring at you. The lychee martinis are STRONG. 1-3 will leave you better than good.
