Love the ever changing menu. Happy hour offered a small but creative menu with drink specials. Food was phenomenal as usual. Restaurant was empty on a Tuesday afternoon , other than that great atmosphere.

I would say that this is a highly experimental dining venue. They are trying to fuse several types of food (asian, french, italian) and some of it is ok, but some of it isn't. Do not try the duck pate. It's awful.

My boyfriend and I were visiting from out of town and this was a nice change of pace from the other restaurants we ate at. We both got noodle dishes and fried oysters to begin. Everything was delicious! Honestly, I'm still thinking about how good the Maypop pie was.

I was excited to visit again this time for Brunch. It was lovely. Turner was my waiter and he was second to none. Extremely attentive and knowledgeable of the menu. I let him know that I wanted to do three courses and his recommendations were spot on. It got a bit busy as the larger brunch crowd came and there was a bit of a wait between my first and second course...but nonetheless...a wonderful experience. Compliments to the Chef and entire staff for keeping the vibe of MayPop beautiful.

We went for lunch and verything we had was great, one of us gluten free and they were able to accommodate, modifying a few dishes. Can’t fault anything we had. Very unusual Dim Sum variations, innovative menu, highly recommended. Wok fried Jumbo shrimp with noodles were phenomenal, calamari was gluten free, perfectly cooked and seasoned. Sesame seed covered buns,sugar cane and sausage stuffed were addictive and eggplant and watermelon salad was great. Food leans towards spicy, but that works for me. Also refreshing cocktails like Bangkok Mule highly recommended. Will be traveling back and having dinner next month.

Food is creative and exciting, blending local flavors with spices and touches from SE Asia. Bouillabaisse was artfully presented and the base tasted like laksa soup with a touch of sambal. Crab salad with cantaloupe and beets was refreshing, both in taste and presentation. Curried beignets topped with coconut cream was appetizing. My only gripe is the portions are really small so at the end of the day, the meal was expensive.

This is the best restaurant in New Orleans if you prefer modern food, genuine natural ingredient flavours and presentation that is wholesome yet high end! They friendly approach to customer service was refreshing and our waitress so helpful to explain the menu and suggestions. We would eat here every night if we could, better than some of our high end sydney & Melbourne “good food” venues.

Other then the duck being a little too salty it was on of the best meals I’ve ever had. Creative and adventurous fare, that is well beyond any ‘fusion’ cuisine I’ve tried in the past. This restaurant is exceptional.
