Seems people expect that at the price, the dishes should be exemplary of classic cuisines of the countries represented...they're not, so try not to let your taste buds be confused by your comparisons. The food is tasty, and the dishes are their interpretations of native favorites of many asian cuisines...if you must have authentic Thai, Korean, Chinese, Indonesian, Japanese, and Vietnamese
food, this might not get it...but once again, all the dishes are quite tasty, freshly prepared, and reasonably priced- if anything any longer is. The bar is great, the surroundings quite pleasing, and if you do want the best in Japanese and sushi, just head on upstairs to TheHump, the sister restaurant (with it's own flight deck). Monday nights the big band jazz is incredible, usually without charge, no less...and...you can even dance a bit, if there's room! Whosoever cannot find goodness here...amidst the runways, fresh air, open views of the city and mountains must stumble about eternally, always grumbling about something, alas...pity to them and joy to those who visit this remarkable LA restaurant. Oh yeah, and if a waiter sticks his sleeve in your food...let him have it! But seriously, the waiters are well trained and supervised...every person and restaurant has it's off-nights, but this place is mostly on. And did I mention parking? No valet and no shortage of proximal parking. One flight up, take the elevator or the stairs...

What happens when a restaurant serves Chinese (Dim Sum, Taiwanese, Szechwan), Korean, Japanese, Vietnamese, Thai, Indonesian and Filipino foods? Nothing is done right! Reason is simple, no chef can master all these cuisines. After couple bad dishes, we decided to just order a Pad Thai to fill up. They couldn't even make the Pad Thai right, I only took one bite.
Good that I was there mainly to try the insects. They are not bad, can't say tasty since they are mostly deep fried, but interesting experience.
Nice location with a view of the airport, so would be good to go have some drinks on a date if the service is a little better.
Overall, horrible. Only go there if you want to try some insects and stick with the insects.

Great spot to watch the planes during sunset with a drink in hand. The bar serves the yummiest mixed drinks; I'm a huge fan of their Mojito's. The frog legs are to die for and taste like mini chicken. The Mongolian beef is wonderfully delicious with the fresh steamy bread. The servers are great and started recognizing us after our 2nd meal there. And who doesn't love those creepy crawly critters?

We heard some ""good"" things about this place and wanted to check it out ourselves. Well, the wait was quick and that was the ONLY good part. The service was HORRIBLE, the waiter put his entire sleeve into my wife?s dinner while reaching across the table to pour water and almost knocked her in the head while doing so. The food was just okay, for what?s on the menu your better off going to a Thai restaurant then wasting your money at this place. They NEVER asked us if we wanted another drink and they cleaned our plate before we were even finished. It took me so long to finish my Thai chicken because all they gave me were chopsticks to eat with. How does one eat an entire half of a chicken still on the bone with chopsticks? We left a bad tip to reflect on our experience and ended up going to NOMA on Wilshire for better food and service. We will never go back and I HIGHLY don't recommend this place.

After many visits with many friends, this place managed to ruin my wife's 40th birthday party with warm beer, bad service and no cake and candles after many hints to the server... we tried to over look many of the short comings on my many visits because my friends love to watch the planes landing and taking off...it couldn't have been from us not leaving a good tip we always left 40 per cent... so I tell my friends who like to watch planes take off and landing to go to In and Out Burger near LAX. The food is just so so.
