Asian
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.

I took my wife here for her birthday. She was unimpressed with her repast and libations. For me the experience overall was good. The value is poor. The speciality drinks were light on the alcohol. I have had much better drinks from other places . My advice drink beer or wine as it won’t be watered down like the drinks we had. The food was tasty but I did get much for the price paid. I had the grilled short ribs. It was a very small portion for the price. To sum it up the food was tasty. The drinks were watered down. My meal was expensive for what I got.

WE ate at a tale, rather than a booth, go give our guests more room, but it was noisier than we wanted. Service was average.

Got there at 11:30am and ordered our meal around 11:50. Took 49 minutes to receive food. Food was hot and good but just took too long.

Service was incredibly slow and the waitress took 15 minutes to come back with my credit card so I can sign. Food is always good but it’s a hit or miss with the service.

Great Asian restaurant serving hot food and great sushi. Happy hour is a must. Nitrogen wine taps offers best wine eliminating flat stale pours.

Absolutely horrible service! I had to get up three times to ask for another drink. One time I even asked the manager to please have any server stop periodically but we never saw anyone and the restaurant was real busy. Makes me question if I go back as I’ve been a long time customer.

Great location, good menu options. However, depends on the time you go, sometimes the fish serves isn't the quality you'll expect. For example, I had sashimi plate yesterday. Tuna was apparently not fresh. I really have to hold myself back from ordering sushi / sashimi there.

I have been coming to Rattan for the last 15 or so years. It is one of my few Friday lunch hang-outs ....
Love the Tempura Shrimp, Thai Beef salad, Vietnamese Vermicelli with grilled pork, Oreo Chocolate Mousse and lately (since a very good Sushi bar is installed) I am totally impressed with a dish that, I think, is the most delicious “sashimi” dish I ever tasted, “ Umami Hamachi” which is a cold served fatty hamachi combined fragant mini greens, red onion, Thai chili and and a light lemony foam. This is “HEAVEN”!!!! I wonder who can match this in Houston ....
Combine this with a very fragant and dry white wine from Rattan’s significant wine collection (by the glass) and you hang out there for a while ( like I do). Service is superb, I stay at the bar ......

We used to go to Rattan very often 5-9 years ago and went back on a quiet rainy Sunday night to meet up with friends. Food is still very good, nice variety of wines by the glass available. We enjoyed Happy Hour and everything was very nice. Only our waitress wasn't happy to be there... Maybe she had a bad day, but a smile goes a long way and you shouldn't take it out on your customers...

It was an absolutely magical evening, from start to finish. Our server, Sam, was beyond attentive and knowledgeable, and even shared some "off the menu" options with us to try. Will be back in a flash.

First time to this restaurant. Their HRW menu looked very good and prompted us to drive over 30 min here to try. Cocktails and beer on tap were good. HRW menu items we sampled were delicious except the halibut was overcooked. Secretly wished to have the sashimi or sushi items instead as they looked good on other tables. Our server was not very attentive and we waited awhile to order, and waited more for service of each course and for the check. It was a long way for us to drive out to try this restaurant and not sure would make the effort again. But would definitely recommend the restaurant to friends and family who live or work in the area.

This was great and I even went for HRW menu but there’s an alcohol, food and sales tax and then tip on top so even though the lunch was $20 I didn’t leave without spending $40.
