We sat at the bar - super cute and the bartenders are amazing- and had a bottle of wine (Paul the bartender had great wine knowledge). Delish. I recommend ordering less than you think and ordering slowly… we got full before our food all came out. The cucumber salad was light and tasty and the spring rolls were decent. The mushrooms were so so good as well as Bao Buns. We also ordered the fried rice but were too full. Totally recommend for dates and small groups… gets a little loud so not good for important conversations.

Amazing service. Ash and the team knew what they were doing. They knew their product and explained it better than I have ever had a server explain in my life. Loved it. Great night great food.

From the outside it looks very unassuming but once you step foot in the restaurant the smell of the food from the kitchen is out of this world.

This off the beaten track stand alone restaurant is perfect for couples and small group of friends looking for something a little different without giving up quality.
Very casual, charming, with very caring servers. Definite recommend for those enjoying Asian influenced food. Soft shell crab buns a must!

Everything was perfect from the service to the food. The only problem I had was my stomach wasn’t big enough to fit more food! Seriously everything was fantastic and we can’t wait to come back again! Thank you

Belly is an amazing spot in Midtown Phoenix, locally opened and operated. The food is fantastic as well as incredibly inclusive of all diet types. We ordered the Pork Spring Rolls, Seared King Oyster Mushrooms, the Mussels, the Fried Chicken, and both the Pork AND Jackfruit fried rice. Nothing disappointed, the Fried Chicken, Mussels and Mushrooms were definitely the stars of the evening!

The cocktail menu is well thought out, balanced, and creative. 5 stars for Belly!

The food was fantastic, the service was on point, and we had a great time. If you are looking for a fancy dining experience this is not for you. If you were looking for a laid-back, fun atmosphere with exceptional cuisine then this is the spot. The restaurant is small, with only a few tables. Make reservations. Don’t miss this Phoenix gem.

All the food was very salty. Service was spectacular and cocktails were incredible. But the parking was a pain and the food was wildly over salted. Atmosphere and ambiance are great, I’ll give it another shot, hopefully it was just an off day for the kitchen.

We have been wanting to hit Belly up for a while and were so very glad we did. We made resos, as we read different reviews letting us know that it gets busy. Great to be greeted by the kitchen and chef when we walked in. We sat at the bar upstairs. Smaller establishment, but great ambiance. I'm sadly forgetting our bartender's name, but his drink and food recommendations were on point. Everything was seasoned well. Drinks were well-balanced. Fun dishes too! Wish we could have tried many more items on the menu, but that'll just mean that we have to go back again soon! Sounds like they may have seasonal menus, or at least switch the menus up from time to time. Great experience!

Excellent food overall with a great atmosphere. The mussels and the pork roll as starters are mandatory. Pork clay pot is excellent as well. I thought the fried chicken was way too salty. It’s delicious but expensive.

Very loud inside. Chairs are very low back and not comfortable. Some food was amazing, other was meh. Sea bass is a must try. The crab wraps were just breaded soft shell crab with some lettuce for you to wrap and dipping sauce. Mam Kho quet was good dipping, but literally came with 5 cold green beans and a couple brocolini. Flavors were good, but not that great. Overall, seemed too expensive for what it was.

Where to start….the service was incredible. We sat at the bar which was perfect since it was a little loud but probably from all the happy people eating the delicious food. We ordered the cucumber salad, broccolini, and jackfruit fried rice, and we quite literal licked the plate. The cocktails were creative and well made. And we needed with the sweet potato donuts which was a jaw-dropping combination of savory and sweet with a pandan sweet sauce. I would eat here every night if I could. I can’t wait to try everything on the menu.
