    Wonderful experience and outstanding food. Our favorites were the Rice cake appetizer, fried avocado salad, eggplant curry and Pana Cotta dessert. The Red Fish was also excellent. It’s a very small restaurant but they make the most of this space by having superb, personalized service which made us feel like we were special invited guests. We will definitely be back!

    A snug and intimate restaurant that utilizes an exposed brick aesthetic to lend to its rusticity. I had high hopes for this quaint place and it did NOT disappoint. Our experience was very much on par with that of a Michelin starred restaurant. All the items were unique and enjoyable. Here's everything we ordered: Market fresh oysters*: Simply divine. Highly recommend getting these. We ordered 4 between the 2 of us. Could've gotten 6. Hamachi Crudo: Very interesting - a recurring theme you'll see in this review. We've usually seen hamachi crudos consist of oranges, but not this one. This time had strawberries. Fried Avocado*: crispy and delicious. Also interesting. Dauphiné Ravioli: Interesting and good. Good to have one time. Crispy Vietnamese rice cake*: Very messy, but worth it! The rice cake with the various greens was an explosion of welcome flavor. Would get this again. Shaking beef**: Freaking fantastic. Some of the most tender tenderloin I've had. Paired with the garlic noodles, *chef's kiss*. 5/5. Kimchi and Foie Gras Dumplings: This included a table side presentation and that was the highlight because this was the only item we disliked. I felt the various flavors conflicted with each other. Chocolate cake*: do not be deterred by the lack of flare in the name. For this was anything but an ordinary chocolate cake. Everything about this cake was delicious. Particularly the hazelnuts. Our server was also very kind. I'm very particular when it comes to giving a fine dining restaurant 5 stars, but I feel this place undoubtedly deserves it given the risk they take with each item and how they successfully deliver on each risk as well. Our total was $203. We look forward to visiting again. * indicate items we'd order again and recommend.

    One of the best places in Dallas, for sure! Food is phenomenal! Anything you order will be amazing! My favorites were garlic noodles (duh!!), the ravioli, black pepper tuna, stuffed leeks (soooooo good!), scalops, hamachi crudo, kimchi and gruyere fritters. My husband loved the brisket. oh and don't forget to order the chocolate cake (best chocolate cake i've had). Lychee martini was delicious as well!

    Great selection of appetizers and entrees! Recommend the Banh Bao (brisket) and Squash Blossom (pork & shrimp tempura) to start. Had 1 entree, Shaking Beef, with 2 sides, garlic noodles and grilled broccolini. More than enough food and a spectacular combo. Very nice, targeted cocktail, beer, and wine menu. This was an anniversary dinner, and they treated us to 2 glasses of prosecco - much appreciated!

    Everything was exceptional! I can’t believe we waited so long to try Mot Hai Ba. The outside is extremely deceiving and deterred us from trying. Do not let location fool you.
