Entered Gigi's and was immediately
Entered Gigi's and was immediately impressed. Gigi has set the tone from entrance to being seated to the entirety of the dining experience. The staff was patient, responsive, and met all our unique needs. The food was nothing short of divine. I honestly didn't believe it was possible to prepare food so well! Thanks Gigi, I hope to visit your bistro again in the future.

A Good Galleria Find
Gigi's Asian Bistro is a fun restaurant find in the Houston Galleria. The food was good and the atmosphere was active with a Sweet 16 party going on behind our table! The service was not the best, but it worked. Overall, a good dining experience.

Went after work with a group, opted for the items on the Dim Sum menu...great bites! Dumplings, Shu Mai, potstickers, chicken and beef satay skewers, crispy calamari...only miss was the veggie dumpling...lacking flavor, but not a big deal, just wouldn't order again. The Satay skewers were super tender and flavorful.

Food was good, about what
Food was good, about what I expected. Wait staff was available and helpful, a little casual for the restaurant though. Went for a birthday, and staff came out with a gong and sang-- I think a gong and cake is sufficient for a nice restaurant, no singing necessary. Had reservation for 8pm, arrived at 820pm and our table was not ready. We didn't wait long, but were surprised we had to wait at all. Overall, a good experience, but slight adjustments could be made. The reason to go to Gigi's is the atmosphere and decoration.

Great brunch spot
went for Mother's Day & it is a perfect spot. Dim Sum very good.
Busy so service was a little hectic than usual.
Would suggest they get rid of the extremely shallow sauce bowls since for a party of four we had to ask for more sauce several times!

A Fine Sunday Brunch
My wife and I went to Gigi’s for the Sunday brunch and we drove in from Sugar Land. The room was busy and crowded which we liked. Our waiter explained the various dim sum items (small bite-sized portions). The ribs were especially good and tender; we enjoyed the selection of six sauces. We quit going to traditional brunches—too much food and they are all the same. Gigi’s was a refreshing change of pace and we will return.

This is such a great Asian spot - from their dumplings to their curry, consistently good.

Loved the food, not the prices
Our group of 12 had, family style, the sesame chicken (Return of the Phoenix) and the Shaking Beef. The two dishes were quite simply wonderful and our group couldn't get enough of them. The menu has some really delicious items but the dishes are pricey. The decor was very pretty and the service good.

Sat in cherry blosom room, very nice! Service from begining to end was exelent. Waiter made good recomendations on both food and drink. Crispy fish and Red curry shrimp were unique and delicious. Our portions were just the right size, although we ate everything as it was so good. It was a special ocassion so even though the price was high, we throughly enjoyed ourselves.

When walking in from the mall you expect another run of the mill restaurant but we were pleasantly surprised by its decor and ambiance. The food was superb. We waited a while to get even water to drink and our server wasn't that great. He came and asked if we wanted an appetizer. Apparently he forgot that he took the appetizer order and had to come back to find out what it was! I would still go back there.

We haven't been in a while but as always it was amazing! The food was great. The drinks were great. The service was great! What more can you ask for!

Delicious and Romantic
The food here was outstanding. My date and I went during lunch on a weekday so it was very busy. It's conveniently located right inside the Galleria mall, so we were able to do some shopping we planned on doing right after our lunch. The setting is very romantic with low lighting.

Great Early Dinner
I took my daughter and enjoyed apps and dinner. The food and service was excellent.
7/2/2013 12:00:00 AM
I go to this place at least twice per month as the food is always awesome.
Today we had a problem with our orders and the problem and ourselves were treated so professionally by th staff and management that I just have to congratulate by the way problems are solved.
By the way - food is excellent as always.
7/11/2013 12:00:00 AM
This was the perfect place for me and my honey to enjoy some quality time together. I can't wait to go back.

Best Dim Sum in the Galleria area
A small but good selection of modern dim sum. The food is fantastic and the decor of the restaurant is top notch. Having eaten there several times, I'd like to see some variety, at least seasonally. The prices have been hiked over the past year, but the dim sum menu remained virtually the same.

Great food as usual!
Love Gigi's! The food is excellent and service great! My only complaint is that sometimes it is so dark that I cannot see well.
7/30/2013 12:00:00 AM
I'm not a big Chinese food fan but Gigi's Asian food so far has been excellent. I've been there several times now and my two favorite dishes are the Heavenly Beef and Green Curry Chicken. For the price it gets five stars but compared to all restaurants I suppose a four star is more appropriate.

Good date night spot
I had a great experience at Gigi , Saturday night. The service and ambience was perfect. I will visit again .
8/10/2013 12:00:00 AM
It's hard to find ambiance in the Galleria area, and this was perfect. I can't wait for a chance to return. The service and food was excellent, and although we sat in the large dining room we could easily talk and listen to each each other.

Excellent Peking Duck
I passed on the lunch menu which looked great and went for the $30 Peking Duck - it was worth every cent!

Gigi's Asian Bistro
Despite the bad ratings online, the food was well prepared & tasty. A bit pricey though.

Great food, original and traditiona
Bit of a rocky start as the hostess would seat us where we wanted. The waiter did and was pretty good at accommodating all our requests throughout dinner. Could have checked in a bit more and wasn't over the top but friendly. The dumplings and potstickers were fantastic. We ordered 5 different dishes and all were good. The best in my opinion was the lamb, filet, and green curry chicken. Desserts weren't anything special but sorbet was good for little something sweet. I don't usually think of desserts at Asian restaurants anyway.
9/18/2013 5:00:00 PM
Fantastic, as usual
My husband and I live in the Woodlands but try to make a special trip on occasion to enjoy the weekend brunch at Gigis. The dumplings are so fantastic and the service is always excellent. I love the ambiance, the service is always on point and the food always impresses. Keep doing what you're doing Gigi, we love it!

Very good food, so-so service
Our apps included the Thai chicken soup, flavorful and big enough for two to split, and the chicken & ginger steamed dumplings served with a garlic soy sauce, one of my personal favorites. My wife thoroughly enjoyed her Shanghai ribeye steak, a roughly 12-14 oz steak, cooked and seasoned to perfection. (She said it was one of the best steaks she's had in Houston.) I opted for a green curry chicken dish which was full of flavor, and a very large portion.
Service is spotty. Our server was very impatient, not wanting to wait 10 seconds or so for me to make a wine selection, and walking away before we could order the food. Once we were finally able to get him to take the order, a busser provided very good service thereafter. Music obnoxious.

The restaurant was not busy
The restaurant was not busy the night we came. Our waiter got off to a bit of a rocky start with his service, but once on a roll he took very attentive care of us. Our dinner was splendid. The dumplings were very tasty and the clay pot was perfect ~ reminding my wife of HOME. The waiter brought us complimentary dessert because we were celebrating our recent marriage. How sweet of him. Yes, I intend to visit Gigi's again.

Grea tambience with good food
We had a very nice evening at Gigi's. The atmosphere was great and the place was not crowded for a Friday night. Service was very good. Dumplings were great; main dishes were not the greatest tasting, but good.

After a company happy hour in the bar of Gigi's, I walked through the place and knew my friends would love a dinner there! The ambiance is very different from any Asian restaurants I've seen, and the curtained rooms and ceiling full of flowers dropping down are so cool! I brought some of my girl friends in yesterday and just like I knew, it was a hit. Our waiter was funny, attentive, and really knew the menu (I had only had drinks and appetizers). We did our meal family style, each picking things to try (my pick was seabass which is excellent but my favorite was the shaking beef) and of course we had to have some lychee martinis. And although my boyfriend doesn't know it yet, he will be taking me here for a romantic date night soon!!
10/16/2013 12:00:00 AM
We were having so much fun we stuck with the appetizers and one entree! Loved all of it! Everything was fresh and the drinks were great!

Service was excellent! The
Service was excellent! The Sesame Chicken was the best I'd ever had! The sauce was delicious! It was thick and sweet. Also loved the Crabmeat Fried Rice! Ordered it just 'cause it sounded interesting...It was so good! Texture of the rice was light and fluffy, crabmeat was flavorful, and the pineapple added just the right amount of sweetness.

Birthday gong too loud, too often
Each time they celebrate a bday the bring out the gong and beat it a few too many times. Very disturbing.
