The food was amazing. I had the satay chicken, laksa soup, and panang beef curry. The rest of the menu looked quite delicious, so it took me a while to settle on these. I would gladly go back and spend another half hour agonizing over the menu, after which I may still get the same thing because to really was that good. Only reason I don't give it 5 stars is the price, it's a little steep for this kind of food.

This review is a long time coming and I'm afraid whether it is late to describe my experience there, it just came to my mind that I ought to review this terrible place. I brought my young girlfriend there after going to the ballet on December 21st, 2012, probably the fanciest date I've ever been on, in spite of going to this dive of a pseudo-fancy restaurant. I had fond memories of coming here as a child when my mom's boyfriend took me to a night on the town and exposed me to the fine arts scene. [I'm not from Seattle, I only go there for the Symphony and Ballet these days], in any case I had a fond memory of the fragrant duck. The fragrant duck I had again when Wild Ginger was catering the triple door, I believe in 2008 or 2009. In any case I was excited to have it again since duck in my mind is a delicacy, it truly is more fragrant than the factory-farmed fowl we have in our grocery stores. When the duck arrived it was buried underneath a mountain of garnish, possibly to hide the poor quality of the meat, and the fact that it was chicken. I asked the waiter, (who looked like a washed-up italian mobster) if he could verify that this was in fact duck. He assured me that it was duck, in a rude and surly tone, even going so far as to swear to God it was duck. He then gestured toward my girlfriend's plate and said, see, that's chicken. We never serve duck on the bone. I then retrieved from my own plate a chicken leg, complete with bone. I can't recall his response but I remember it was escalated and very rude, on par with service at maybe an Italian pizzeria in NYC. It was an absolute travesty when compared to the origins of the restaurant. In any case, I know the difference between duck and chicken. I'm not sure if they discontinued duck entirely or if the kitchen had simply run out that night, but in any case the waiter's rudeness made this an entirely unpleasant experience. Although the sauce they served with the chicken was what I remembered and was very good.

Good food at unjustified prices. I'm sure many of the waitstaff are wonderful, but my server was inattentive (checked in once total), inconsiderate that I was dining alone (didn't bother to skip the family-style serving, with the separate plate and serving spoon with each dish for...who else, exactly?), and casually upsold me on dessert without mentioning it would cost a significant amount more. Maybe once they quit treating solo diners like outcasts they could begin to ask $40 a meal. As an airline employee, I'm familiar with eating by myself, and this was an appalling experience compared to most fish-and-chips shacks, much less candlelit tables.

I've been twice; the first night wasn't bad, and the second night was terrible. The first night, there were two front desk staff members -- one was quite nice and helpful, and the other was a bit rude. Not a big deal, as the food was delicious. The second night, I received a spoon with lipstick already on it (it wasn't cleaned), and the was... not at all good. I found squid in both of what I ordered, although it had not been listed on the menu (which read fish, mussels and scallops -- so no other shellfish, right?). The funny thing is, it was not in the entree the first night I had one of the items. I don't eat squid, so I let the restaurant know I would not have ordered it if I had known (had they listed it on the menu), and the woman I spoke with simply said "sorry." Okay! Well, $16 wasted on a dinner. I won't be going back. I worked in the restaurant service for years, and generally, places that have dissatisfied customers tend to offer the option of changing the item or at least making a recommendation for next time. Considering the lipstick on the spoon, rude server the first night, and the surprise squid (and wasted meal), there won't be a next time that I go.

Lots of delicious Asian Fusion food. Great Mango Sticky Rice desert. Very friendly comfortable, relaxed dining. Lots of vegetarian choices and separate vegetarian menus available.

Rip off - completely overpriced for a group of more than 4 people. Portions are ridiculously small and no more tasty than average. I HATE how they stole my money and I left hungry and $200 poorer for 3 people with no booze purchased! Despicable.

The food here is extremely hit or miss. Sometimes it is amazing and sometimes it is just awful; also everything is served family style. The one good thing is that their drink prices during happy hour is $5, but it is extremely hard to flag down a waiter. Their one saving grace is their drinks and the duck has always been pretty good every time I have had it.

Absolutely amazing service by Brent. Felt bad for only ordering one thing, but I would absolutely go back here. They were even able to accommodate my nut allergy.
