They used to have their own storefront, but now they share the Tiara Cafe space on the ground floor of New Mart. Food is a mix of traditional and fusion Vietnamese. I went for a prix fixe bday dinner, so I got to try a bit of everything, other than dessert, which I've given up for Lent. All in all, I thought the food was good, but not great. The only real stand out was the beef carpaccio, which came out in surprisingly generous portions when I was expecting the usual smeared on the plate type slices. The order-ahead crab was stewed in amazing, garlicky goodness, but too messy for me to handle on a dressed-up to go out night. The pork belly fried rice was pretty standard fare, and the pork belly didn't really elevate it much for me. The bass with pancetta had good flavour but was incredibly bony. Verdict: Yes, to dining there again but not to going out of my way to do so.

Loved this place! Apparently this was a popular underground Asian food spot that was shut down only to legally reemerge inside another restaurant. You are enticed by eclectic concoctions that are sort of like traditional Asian food with a twist. The Singaporean Chili Crab is the star of the show and runs out quickly. It's spicy and messy but utterly amazing!

WOW! Went here for a Gogobot meetup for Grubwithus - had a great meal here. Shanghainese spicy crab, roast pork belly fried rice, malaysian curry chicken, poutine (with tater tots!), it was a serious feast. I'll definitely try to make it back soon!

Starry Kitchen takes over Tiara Cafe's kitchen in the evenings to provide some of the most scrumptious eats you can find in LA. Their dishes are inspired by Asian countries (i.e. Singapore, Korea, Vietnam), and are so freakin' good. Make sure to try their Singaporean crab! It's FANTASTIC. You're going to want to order extra beignets to mop up the crab sauce with.

Such an awesome eating experience. Great food and super cool staff. Must try the Singaporean chili crab! We loved the pineapple beer chicken wing soup and the pork belly fried rice! Next time we're for sure getting the carmelized striped bass. It took us years to get here, but we'll be back!
