Curiously nestled behind an enigmatic mural in Midtown, behind a blink-and-you’ll-miss-it door stands Sei Less, a newly minted Asian fusion restaurant. With close proximity to Madison Square Garden and the Garment District, Sei Less is the new hot spot that all fiveboroughs will be talking about.

Designed for evenings of enviable cuisine and distinctive revelry, the spacefeatures seating for 350 guests juxtaposed with a meticulously curatedcollection of modern art and clean lines, alongside traditional, hand carved Asian design elements in an homage to the architectural pagodas ofgenerations’ past.

The curated Pan-Asian menu with a one-of-a-kindcocktail experience as well as mocktails, for the sober-curious set, isdesigned to enhance every evening. In addition to the main dining area,the venue will offer 4 private dining areas to accommodate private parties and events.

    Underwhelming dishes though the lo mein and sashimi were very good, everything else was mediocre or really bad. For the price we paid we didn’t feel we realized any value. We also expected a sophisticated atmosphere but my entire party was disappointed. The old fashioned were good the mule was horrible and I still don’t understand why I paid $21 for a plain ginger ale? That’s concerning to me. Would not recommend.

    The best thing was the lobster spring rolls. The Nine Seasons Prawns was only about 5 shrimps and not that tasty . Bowl filled with rice balls.

    Food was ok, the mains were good the appetizers fair and the crispy Fun Chow noodles were bad. The service was terrible, constantly having to find waiters. There was an automatic 20% tip added to the check even though we were only two. Never happened before and service was defintely not worth it. Plus $5 was added to cehck for non cash payment even before we paid. Lastly, the atmosphere was very dark, noisy and uninviting. Botton line, DO NOT WASTE YOUR MONEY,there are better chinese restaurants in the city with better food at more reasonable prices.
