A word from Rattan Pan Asian Bistro and Wine Bar
Rattan is the essence of chic eclecticism. Here, the surroundings are as visually stunning as they are instantly comfortable. The Pan-Asian cuisine features brilliant presentations of authentic favorites, as well as sensational new executions. To complement each dish, Rattan’s comprehensive wine list is exclusive and indulgent.

At first glance, you'll see an opulent wine bar. Upon closer inspection, you'll find a one-of-a-kind opportunity for wine connoisseurs and novices alike, thanks to our unique Enomatic system. This sophisticated wine preservation process allows us to present 40 outstanding and ever-changing wine selections by the one or two-ounce pour, or by the glass. Each is as true and pure in taste as the moment the cork was first coaxed from its bottle.

Private parties and corporate catering opportunities are available.

    We had the herb garden and paradise island drinks to start. They were OUTSTANDING. I would come back for the drinks alone. Had the Ahi Tuna appetizer. Again, great! Two servings of the spicy Orange beef came out (sounded so good that we both wanted it). They could've brought out ten portions and I would've finished them all. We asked the waiter to recommend a desert and he suggested the butter cake. Unfortunately, that was far too rich even for my taste. But all in all it was a great trip.

    This was an impromptu and casual, but somewhat serious business lunch. We had a booth along the wall. Everything was absolutely perfect. Cannot complain about anything, and will certainly be going back. I would like to try the evening meal soon, as well.

    We first ate at Rattan for a business lunch and were sufficently impressed by the food and friendly staff that we were determined to return for dinner on a weekend evening. We have now eaten at Rattan ~6 times; the food is consistently very good to excellent and the staff are always warm and welcoming. The sushi is excellent as are all the other dishes we have tried. "Specials" can be surprisingly expensive, otherwise Rattan is a good value. Service can sometimes be a bit spotty but overall, Rattan remains one of our favorite spots.

    Ordered tempura shrimp, ahi tuna tartare, tuna sashimi, mango role and caper role. All was very good. Minor items--rather thick slices of tuna and I prefer thin slices, tempura was very flavorful but would call it more fried shrimp as it was not the light tempura batter. Again, overall highly recommended, great food and nice wine list. Worth a visit.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2012
    Dined on 5/11/2014
    Food was great but service could have been improved. There was no greeting of Happy Mothers day when we entered the restaurant nor when our server arrived at our table which was disappointing considering the restaurant was only open on Sunday specifically for Mothers Day! Similarly my wife never received her free dessert for Mothers day which was part of the e-mail flyer that prompted my initial reservation. Would probably think twice about returning with the family.

    Rattan still impresses. The menu is creative and delicious. They offer Pan Asian food that is easy to enjoy, avoids the strange eastern ingredients and keeps it comfortable and unique. Lengthy wine list with most offered by the bottle or glass. I like their wine flights too. Each visit has me wondering why we don't go their more. I always enjoy the entire experience.

    The food at Rattan Bistro is awesome and I would recommend this place to everyone. I have been here many times before but my staff had not and they all gave wonderful commets on the food. However, one major problem was the noise level where we were seated, in the 'glass' room. Could not hear the person across from me and barely hear my neighbor.

    We had been to Rattan several times before and always enjoyed it. This time brought friends who were "first timers". They were delighted with all the aspects of the restaurant--our waiter, Chris, was outstanding, ambiance was great, excellent wine choices and food. We did not feel rushed and even after presenting us with the bill, the waiter suggested if we wanted to just stay and visit with our friends that was fine. Highly recommended.

    was my fave spots in houston. I live in houston 2 wks out of month. Last month, Ibrought co workers on a friday, made reservations and partake of happy hour specials. Drinks were terrible. No salt on margarita n bloody dragon. Complained n nothing was done..not even an apology. 2nd round had salt but not blended well at all. We had a $76 ticket for party of 2 and ended up grabbing something to eat on way home and we were eating from regular menu. Portikn sizes were so small!!

  • Misleading Happy Hour
    MemorialDiner
    Dined on 2/6/2014
    The whole reason that I went to this restaurant was to check out their happy hour. However after I booked a table and showed up to the restaurant we were told that our section of the restaurant was not eligible for happy hour. Our waiter had to check with someone to see if we could have the happy hour menu rather than the full price dinner menu. It seems to me that a place who puts a sign out in the street advertising their happy hour from 4-7 should let diners of the entire restaurant enjoy the happy hour menu. . I highly recommend the sushi rolls, they were great.

    Overall, my party and I had a good experience at Rattan. We met there for a work dinner and everyone seemed to enjoy their food. However the service was lacking. Our Server was absent for long periods of time and seemed to have a hard time understanding simple requests (like drink refills and our food order). It also took a pretty long time for the food to come out. Our Server told us several times that they were short staffed and that's why the service was lacking (even though we didn't complain). I understand being short staffed, but that doesn't really explain why he seemed so confused every time we asked for something. I would recommend Rattan though, because everyone has a bad night now and again. Overall it was pretty great!

    Food never disappoints! Service mediocre. Server tried hard but was maybe forgetful or absent minded? Asked for xtra sauce for entree and my guest was more than half finished before it came. Was promised that take out order would be placed towards end of our meal. It arrived while we were still ordering small plates. I cant believe that im about to complain about too much alcohol in drinks but they werent mixed well at all. Had to order addtl juice/ mixer on side to dilute...ratio was way off. We ordered drinks off happy hour menu which were overpriced...all drinks were $8 & $10!!! Plus add the xtra alcohol tax to that!! Which reminds me....a "convenience charge" added to our bill??Was that bcuz we took food 'to go'? Really

    Went on a Friday night with a friend, we were sat at a comfortable booth, the Restuarant wasn't as busy as I expected but there were enough people there to make a nice atmosphere. We had a starter to share, tempura shrimp, thankfully we decided to share the portion was huge, they were very delicious. I had the spicy orange beef and my friend had the teriyaki beef, we both thoroughly enjoyed our dishes. The waitress was very attentive, friendly but professional, I recommend!

    I have been to Rattan Bistro at least 100 times for lunch or dinner and everything has been very good. I was there Monday NOV 4th for lunch and have never experienced such bad service. By bad service, i mean it didn't exist. Countless times during our lunch we had to flag down anyone that would help us. Waited about 40 minutes for our food and even then when it came, it was all messed up for our party of 6 people. I will give Rattan Bistro another chance because of its convenience in relation to location and quality of food and menu, but if this is the "NEW" Rattan Bistro - I'm done! There is too much new growth and newer dining options in the immediate area to subject myself to paying for something i'm not getting.

    A fellow athlete was in town on a Saturday night for an event the following day. Both of us take quality of our food intake seriously, especially before a race. Rattan suited us both very well. We were able to hang out, chat, find healthy food to eat that was properly prepared in addition to having excellent flavor. We were not in a hurry which was good due to the kitchen running slow but as long as the food is prepared correctly, it is fine by us. We were able to have a conversation without being drowned out by loud acoustics. Though we gave no indication we noticed, our server apologized for the kitchen being behind.

    We reserved for a table of 5 on a weekend, and opted to stay at the bar instead of sitting at a table. We really enjoyed the ambiance and the energy of this place. We had quite a few cocktails and enjoyed the happy hour menu offerings, sharing appetizers and small plates. Greg took great care of my group despite some crazy personalities! Not the place for authentic sushi but great flavor and a vast wine and alcohol menu! Be sure to check out their bar setup, which has argon gas to keep every bottle chilled and carbonated. :)we will definitely return!

    I dined here for the first time to celebrate my birthday a couple of days ago. The service was a bit slow considering the restaurant was less than half full, however, I think this was due to understaffing. The host who greeted us also served some of our appetizers. He was personable and fairly knowledgeable about the menu. The food was fantastic and the drinks were very good. Overall great experience.
