Haverhill help?

have been driving past a soon-to-open restaurant 'The Hot Nepali' on Washington street for about 4months which is showing signs of activity. anyone know of this place and their plans?

also, has anyone been to Wang's (he he, i said wang) Table, also on Washington in the old Asain Bay spot?

  1. I'm not sure what's going on at The Hot Nepali. Here is a link to their site though.
    Website sounds like they are open but I don't think they are yet.

    I haven't tried Wang's Table yet, and was planning on checking it out this weekend with friends unless we try the other new place at the begining of Essex Street, which I'm blanking on the name now. I'll post my observation and experience next week.
    I'm still a little upset that Asian Bay is gone, but I'll get over it.

      thx 4 the link. on my way home yesterday i noticed that "The Hot Nepali" had the draperies drawn and whut looked like new steam tables (or other large s/s kitchen equipment) in the front by the door waiting to be installed.

      the other place is "Essex Street Grill." talked to Tara up at Keon's and was told that itz doing well, kinda the same vibe as Keon's, maybe a bit down scale. on the plus side itz open on Sunday.

      wuzzint a real fan of Asain Bay, there sushi was pretty basic (whut shud i expect? it is Haverhill), i prefer Sushi Inaka in Lawrence and i've been hearing things about Haru on 114 in No. Andover.

        Thanks for the word on Essex Street Grill, and the sushi places in the area. I'm just getting my feet wet with sushi and I'm really starting to enjoy it now. I'll be sure to check out Sushi Inaka and Haru soon. Any sushi in Andover that you know of?

        1. re: Infomaniac

          There's Mootone near the Andover train station - I was there about a year ago - Good selections of sushi, rolls and salads. Though it did seem a little smokey from the Teppanyaki tables in the back

            We have gotten take out from there, too. Only had the sushi and it was fine.

              sorry.. meant the room was smokey not the sushi

              1. re: amljml

                Yup- I got that!!!! Just meant I have never eaten there. But it sounds like a fun place for lunch some day.

          the people at HAru are so nice. We get take out from there, as our office is nearby. We did stop in before Christmas for a drink and a bite to eat. WE had the special- salt and pepper shrimp. Good. We also ordered sushi. Had two kinds of tuna, crab and something else. We sat at the regular bar, not the sushi bar, so could not enjoy watching our food being prepared. The sushi was good. Worth a try. Their luncheon specials are a bargain- include appetizer, soup and entree.

      2. Whereabouts on 114 is Haru? I'm not having any luck finding any information about it online...

          It is in the strip mall next to the Stop N Shop ( near Dunkin Donuts and Captain Pizza).

            Macca, is that where a restaurant named Jasmin(e) used to be?

            1. re: thegolferbitch

              THat's it. As a matter of fact, I noticed when I drove by this am, it is in the Jasmine Plaza.

              Thanks! Now I don't have to go driving around looking for it!
              I'll definitely check it out!
