This was the perfect place for all of us. From Korean to Vietnamese and every dish was delicious. The ambience was clean and sophisticated. We loved it and were happy Siri suggested it!

Good atmosphere at Take A Bao. The wait staff are all very nice but you do need to order at the bar which is a bit odd as everything else is like a normal restaurant (Prices/Tabel service etc). The Bao are delicious with a fair few options to choose from and they have a happy hour for wine/food/drinks too. They... More

We enjoyed the tasty food very much. The fusion Asian is with fresh ingredient and good hand of the Shef. The prices are fair. We visited the place at least 5 times during our vacation.

Tasty cocktails and food with pan Asian flavors. Friendly staff, but you have to order at the bar. One would expect table service at a mid price range restaurant.

We arrived 15 minutes before closing, and were greeted not with smiles and hellos but with a very curt message concerning the time. The food was better than average, a more modern twist to Thai, also serve Pho. Nice outdoor patio too, our server was pleasant. Good for lunch or dinner.

Their food was really great! Really fresh and really flavorful. We wanted to have something that was quick and easy with the kids. There were really great options for two adventurous adult eaters as well as two very picky children age 5 and eight. My son has a severe nut allergy and that was also accommodated.
