Can't get into Spice Market or Megu. Where to go?

Friend in from out of town. Wants Asian food. I can't get into Spice Market or Megu. Anything else with that type of atmosphere and food?

        Thanks. I know that Chinatown Brasserie is very big on this site, but personally I don't think it is in the same league as these others.

          In the same league as Spice Market? I found the food there pretty disappointing.

      2. I think Buddakan is a great option. Their food and drinks are better than Spice market, IMO.

        1. Buddakan is great. Between Spice Market and Megu, Megu hands down. Heard Spice Market is very disappointing. The sushi at Megu is great, very fresh.

          1. Chow Bar. Food is similar to Spice Market but of higher quality, with lower prices and no attitude, but a festive atmoshpere.
