It's walking distance from my house. After that visit in August once, I don't think I'll ever go there again. Food was terrible tasted (ordered Thai, that's what they claim to specialize on), ambience very ordinary, utensils/cutleries v ordinary; horrifyingly expensive!

Something really exclusive and unexpected in Gulshan 1. This Asian food restaurant is one of the best in Dhaka, no doubt. There used to be a Malay chef. Good mixtures and good ambiance. Don't forget to bring your own wine, as always in Dhaka. One...More

Need a 3.5 score for this. Well worth a visit if you're stuck here. However, i can't honestly give a restaurant 4 stars when the drink choice is water, fruit juice or pepsi.
