While the menu at Chinoise flirts with flavors from around the Pacific Rim, the focus is mainly on Japanese and Vietnamese tastes, from sushi to spring rolls. Start with panfried potstickers, yam fries or spicy baked mussels before moving on the the spicy-sweet green papaya shrimp salad. Pho fans will enjoy their bowl of broth fragrant with star anise, cilantro and basil.
The "Wok Fare" includes curries, while entrees feature items such as honey walnut prawns and grilled coconut chicken. And of course, the sushi bar - arguably the most popular spot in the restaurant, likely due to the rolls filled with tuna, salmon and fresh veggies or the nigiri menu featuring yellow tail, flying fish roe and fresh water eel.
