The gleaming open kitchen dishes out its tried-and-true formula of reasonably priced Pan-Asian cuisine. But rather than being a fusion of East and West, each dish reflects regional authenticity. Attentive, well-informed servers help diners navigate the large menu, suggesting small plates such as feisty wok-tossed peanuts with anchovies, chilies and garlic; or lettuce cups brimming with minced chicken and lup cheong sausage. For a cooling pause, try green papaya salad tossed with shrimp and mint. Other highlights include shiny, assertive Szechuan green beans and cloud-like dumplings. Steer clear of mushy, clumped-together Thai rice noodles. For dessert, ginger creme brulee is an interesting twist on the French classic.
I've visited Betelnut many times with my date, my friends, and my families. It's a place for all kinds of group. The cocktails here are interesting, too, especially those with Sake. I like the Tsunami. It's really good for girls!!!
