I'd go to Flying Rhino for the decor alone--tomato red chairs and tables painted with bright greenery, red chandeliers, etc. Very convivial. Food is always terrific. The tomato-feta soup is excellent as are the crab rangoons. Burgers are yummy and come in different variations. I...More

We went to the Flying Rhino before a family member's play at Clark University. This restaurant comes highly regarded by the Phantom Gourmet -- and it's easy to see why! We started off with the Hummus plate -- we got the small version, which was...More

Busy, loud atmosphere. Food and service average. Large bar off the dining area. Parking lot small so be prepared to park on street and walk. Valet available.
