The Zagat Review
A "tiny restaurant" with "big flavors" , this "unconventional" Logan Square "standout" offers an "exceptionally creative" Macanese menu ( "it’s every bit as exotic as it sounds" ) of "gorgeous" , "next-level" dishes, including a "fantastic" brunch; factor in "excellent cocktails" and a "convivial" , "boho-chic" setting and it’s "worthy of the hype" – the "only bad part is the wait."

Very good! I enjoyed everything we ordered. Unfortunately we were put in the "bakery area" because our part was larger (5 people) which is understandable but it definitely made the atmosphere not as great. They also have a really interesting drink/wine list.

This is a great gem of a place! We started with the fresh made daily iced tea (it’s a different flavor each day) and the samosas. The samosas were very tasty and a nice start to our meal. Everything only got better from there. The green curry mussels were amazing— we practically licked the bowl clean. The sauce was delicious and the mussels nicely cooked and flavorful. The bread that came with the mussels was nice and crusty on the outside but lovely and soft on the inside. Along with that, we had garlicky greens which were a lovely side dish. Next we had the beautiful hash. It was meaty and the eggs on top were perfectly cooked— allowing the yolk to run beautifully when cut. Finally we had the peri peri chicken. The chicken has a great flavor but, a word of warning, it is very spicy. Our server seemed kind of new. He warned us about the mussels being spicy (they weren’t), but didn’t say a word about the spice level of the chicken. Overall, this was a very enjoyable meal— I will definitely be back. We skipped dessert because we went to the Fat Rice Bakery instead. You can check out my review of that, if you are interested.

I went for lunch but will likely not return. The Good: Curry was great, Sweet ham app was awesome, Peri Peri Chicken Thighs were ok. The staff was friendly and knew the menu. The starter deserts we're awesome! The Bad: The hash was nasty and had chunks of chard burnt meat. Of the 6 meals we ordered 2 we're forgotten about and had to be made separately. The spoons, plates, and drinking glasses were not clean at all.
