Though it might not look like much from the outside, this dining room—with its lacquered chop-sticks and chain-mail curtain—is the sleekest in its class. But the real lure is what emerges from the kitchen. Anything labeled “crispy”is hard to resist, from pork belly with chilies to duck with basil. Balance out your table with a curry (we like the red curry with butternut squash) and a fine version of drunken noodles.
