THIS RESTAURANT HAS CHANGED LOCATIONS Mars Restaurant Review

: Inside this well manicured, petite house, expect a warm red interior playfully festooned with celestial décor, the dreamiest of destinations for dates. Chef Reggie Ferguson deftly merges a daringly eclectic combination of Thai, Indian and Mediterranean culinary influences. Like it hot? Green Thai curry noodles with Vietnamese prawns makes us sit up and take notice. Also worthy of note is the rice paper fish, a fresh fish entrée roasted in a package of translucent rice paper along with ginger, serrano peppers and red bell peppers. The signature tandoori oven items, like pork tenderloin marinated in soy and saké, or Chinese baby-back ribs, will also put stars in your eyes. Don’t miss the special chocolate desserts.
