Open table reservation was not eligible in the restaurant on that day. I would have expect that the restaurant wold have updated their timing with open table so that booking was not taken at the first place.

No hostess so we waited at the front for over 5 minutes before we were seated. Spotty service and Pad Thai was good but Chicken Tikka was not fully cooked and we sent it back. Nice on the inside- they just need more staff and more consistency with the food.

Service was great. Margaritas were good.

Eggplant fries were bland. The salad on steamed sea bass was not fresh.
Vegetarian hot pot had fish stock.
Hakka noodles taste was good, portion was really small, had big chunks of onions and scallions that made the portion of noodles even smaller.

There was strong unpleasant smell in the air

Strong sewage smell near the kitchen, most of the drinks on the menu were unavailable and none of us finished our food. Music too loud for normal volume conversation. This was at about 6pm!

Went there on Mother's Day. They only had the buffet option. While food selection was ok, they ran out of several items and didn't care to refill. Service was provided by just one lady for everyone in the restaurant, hardly adequate.

That said, food was decent, service very friendly.

Ordered steak rare, received well done with a side of A1 in a small gravy dish. Waiter disappeared.

Couldn’t tell who worked there, random people approach the table, cleared dishes without asking if we were done.

Disappointing, won’t return or recommend.

The service was super. Our server was great, joking, apologizing for any delays. The food looked very nice but the filet minion we ordered medium rear. We were told that because it is thick it will be more ch better medium. It was over cooked and dry. So was the lamb. The steak was undercooked. Almost raw.
We used a Groupon, so the price for ya was OK, since for 4 of us we saved $70. But if we had to pay $70 more it is absolutely not worth it. Would not recommend it to friends and I doubt we will go again.

One of the worst dining experiences I’ve had. We were met promptly and seated right away. That was the highlight of the evening. Our waitress was in way over her head. She obviously hadn’t received any training. My wife ordered a “Tito’s rocks” to which she replied “Is that on the menu?” The rest of us ordered a bottle of red wine with three glasses. After a long wait, my wife’s drink arrived along with a glass of wine. We re-iterated our order and our waitress showed up awhile with the bottle which she said “They just opened” and three glasses. She placed them on the table.

The food was one dimensional. The Tom Yum soup was spicy but the lemongrass was nonexistent and there were scant few chunks of chicken. The beef in the Pot dinner was chewy and over cooked and again the dish had no depth of flavor.

Don’t get me started on the bathroom.

The food was okay: crab cakes (average), Nonya Sambal Prawns (only four prawns, lot of sauce), and vegetable yellow curry (meh). One of our cocktails was made incorrectly. The service was substandard, particularly since they were busy and only had two servers. We had passed by and thought we should stop in and try it once. We did, and we will continue to pass by.

We chose this spot for a pre-concert dinner using our $10-off coupon from the Symphony. Reservations were for 6:30pm on a Saturday night, and we arrived at 6:20 to find the restaurant mostly empty. We were graciously allowed to split one of their Prix Fixe dinners, which include appetizer, salad, entree, and dessert. The mango-papya salad was good but too spicy for us. The eggplant fries were great, with a sweet chili sauce. The Butter Chicken entree was the best thing we had, with rice and great nan and lentils. Our dessert, mango mousse, was excellent, but with little mango flavor to it. The pacing of the meal was a little spotty. The salad and appetizer arrived at our table simultaneously, and there was a little too much time between courses, particularly for a mostly empty restaurant. All-in-all a positive experience, however.

One of the worst restaurants. It was practically empty, but the appetizers took 40mins to get to us (and they weren't great). We'd been there about an hour, and we still hadn't been served our main meal. We kept being told it was almost ready, nothing ever came. On top of this, the ambiance was awful and there was horrible, loud repetitive techno-music in the background. They never even gave us napkins.

All restaurants in that area were busy expect this one. It should have told us something.

The techno music was way too loud for the small amount of people in the restaurant (most of the restaurant was empty). The wait staff was very slow and the food took over an hour to come out and when it did finally come out it was cold. I would not suggest this restaurant for more than a drink when you have no time constraints.

Our visit to M was very disappointing. We arrived early, telling the hostess that we had reservations. The place was huge, but nearly empty and loud rap music was playing from the food preparation area, not exactly what you would expect the ambience to be in a Asian fusion restaurant. She failed to log our arrival to OpenTable. The waiter informed us that it was happy hour and drinks were discounted. Then after we ordered our drinks the waiter returned to inform us that these drinks were not available at the happy hour prices, only select drinks. So we ordered from the happy hour list, some which seemed very unusual. We enjoy trying new items, but the drinks tasted like perfume, not appealing. My wife asked for something else and the bar tender (the manager) made her another smaller drink that was not much better. After ordering our appetizers (just salad and soup), we waited and waited and could not locate our waiter. I went to the bar and asked why we were still waiting. She rolled her eyes and asked, "Was your waiter Mario?" Our appetizers subsequently arrived, then our entrees and desserts. The food was OK, but not that special, so disappointing. The manager came over later and apologized saying something about being short-staffed. We wondered how much staff it take to serve two tables?

The restaurant's decor is dramatic and beautiful. Yet, the lunch buffet was very bad with very few selections and food that had been sitting around for too long and tasted old, limp, and stale. If they can hire someone who actually can cook, they would be a great success. What a shame since the space is so nicely decorated.

Really disappointed with the experience here. Had a 7:00 reservation and did not get seated until 7:25. The insult to injury was a table of 4 that came in behind us that got seated right away. Service was completely unattentive. When all was said and done we had completed our meal at 10:00. I'm not sure if they had a bad night but I could never go back here.

We had a lovely dinner, a little pricey but worth the extra just to have the naan. We started with drinks from the bar, the thai chili margarita is spicy hot, but didn't skimp on the tequila. Since it was Valentines day we tried the Prix Fix menu and we were not disappointed. I had the butter chicken and my husband the prawns. The star of the night was the naan. - Enjoyed my evening and the service was good and the food was good as well.

AVOID!!!! Bizarre and AWEFUL experience...Hostess was rude beyond belief and Didn't want to honor the reservations saying they were understaffed. We had a group of 7 and I had baby In my arms while she yelled at me for not calling prior to coming in.... excuse me? Isn't the whole point of OpenTable reservations so that u don't have to call? She then basically threw us out of the restaurant. It was Saturday night, freezing, and needless to say every other restaurant was packed.. thank you chachos for taking us in. We had a lovely time. Good and service we're great.
