I eat at Rattan often for
I eat at Rattan often for business lunch meetings and the food is always consistently good. Our server Danielle provided outstanding service. We shared the large appetizer tray with satay, dumplings, tempura shrimp and ribs. The off the menu item, Kobe beef was excellent. Defintely a great place to go for lunch or dinner.

Friday night at Rattan -- Very Nice
We went there with friends on Friday night. We go there often and enjoy the food and ambience and the fact that it is in the neighborhood. Friday was no exception. The food was very nice and we all had a nice time.

Perfect for a business meeting
Our waiter, Fabio (?) was marvelous. We had a new business lunch meeting last Thursday. The food was excellent. A few of our guests were participating in a weight loss challenge and had no problem finding suitable meals. Our server was appropriately attentive and unobtrusive at all the right times. I would definitely be back on my next trip to Houston.

Good Food and Atmosphere
Went to Rattan for second time. First with daughter and family. Never had this type of Asian food. It was very good the first time, and now the second time equally good. They offer wine flights - a choice of 3-4 2oz. servings of different wines. Very nice. Would highly recommend.

Diverse menu with good sushi at a reasonable price. It's in a residential neighborhood but nice layout, good wine list and happy hour. I would definitely go back.

Always on the Mark
It's a high mark they set, with the variety of menu items they have, and the willingness to mix it up if you want something slightly different than the exact menu item...
Expertly prepared and delivered quickly, by waitstaff who have it in mind that you are there to enjoy your meal, and they are there to make sure it happens, each item is both beautiful and delicious.
Really a gem of a place.

Great restaurant for those who like wine (they have wine splits 3-4 different wine offerings for a $ amount that doesn't break the bank) and food. Menu has very good entrees besides sushi (nice for families of parents who bring children). We have dined here a couple of times and are now venturing into other items on the menu (a sign of a good restaurant when you will try different things).

Continues to impress!
Rattan continues to innovate their menu and keep if fresh and exciting. This is a must dine location in Houston!

much better than its location
i read the very positive reviews online, and wanted something different for a business dinner in the energy corridor. when i arrived, i thought i had made a mistake. The strip mall chic aesthetic was not cutting it for me, and i almost called my colleagues to cancel. Glad I didn't. The food was excellent, terrific wine list, and the server was quite attentive. Pleasantly surprised - and I would return.

Exceptional Food and Service
I can only say that this restaurant never disappoints. The food quality and exceptional service keep me coming back for more!

Energy Corridor Gem!
In the past week, I've hosted 2 group lunches at the restaurant. The food and service was impeccable. I recommend highly!

Never a disappointment!
It gets better with each visit. Most notable commentary is that the staff knows my guests names, preferred drink and food choices at this point. The staff consistently exceeds my expectations and does the food! Bravo!

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.

I celebrated my birthday at Rattan this past weekend and the food and service was great!!! Very nice ambiance! I have been there many times so of course I will be back but my friends loved it as well and want to come back!

I am not a foodie, however, the food was very good based upon the 19 people I pooled, who were part of the group. Frakley, the food was almost too beautiful to eat. Again, not a foodie but very pleased. Service wonderful...wait not long.

Good food, and good service.
Good food, and good service. However, a large screen TV with a continual loop about "food grade Argon" is annoying and detracts from an otherwise pleasant ambiance.

Everything Was Great
This was my 2nd time eating there and I loved it as much as I did the first time. I tried the Pad Thai on my first visit - excellent! The sampler plate is fantastic. On my second visit I tried the Halibut -- a must have. Every thing purchased by my guest and I was the best.

Excellent food. Every item
Excellent food. Every item was full of unique and distinct flavor. Will definitely be back.

Our favorite go to spot
Rattan, is our favorite go to spot. We love their wine flights and the food is great! Have ordered many different items and they have all been very good.

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!

It suited very well
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.

Best Sushi in Houston!
I have eaten sushi all over Houston, and all over the world, and Rattan Pan Asian may be the best of the best. Enough said?

Everything was very nice but checking out was to slow (lunch time experience). Need to improve speed on that. thanks
