Still “delivering the wow factor” , these “dramatic” Pan-Asians feature “mega-sized” Buddhas anchoring “impressive” , soaring spaces where attractions include “imaginative” food and cocktails and a chance “to be seen” ; count on “pulsing music” and a “vivacious” “scene” that’ll distract from the “high-end” tabs.

Incredible incredible incredible. This place is a full experience, from the decor and Hollywood style half moon tables to the stairs and statues. Pictures do not do it justice. The food is excellent, Mongolian Beef, and Spicy Chili Chicken on the top of the bill. Wines are exorbitantly priced, far above rational prices for pretty standard fare. Stick to cocktails, the bartenders are skilled.

UNREAL. I have been to Tao in Vegas but this is a cut above. It is located underground and reminded me of the casino scene from Black Panther. Amazing service and the food is to die for. I would recommend ordering lots and then sharing with your pals. Cocktails were deadly and the coconut custard dessert was so delicious. Overall, one or my best meals in NYC. Such a sexy vibe!

Very cool place. Way too loud music.. Don't eat at the lounge area, its very uncomfortable and you cant talk to the person next to you because of the music. The food was good. Especially the dessert. Don't liked that they asked to hold my credit card as we where eating. It was a cool experience but i wont go there again to eat in the lounge area.. Maybe in the main dining area.
