A chain of well established restaurants-Haru needs no introduction. Serving delicious fusion oceanic fare, this sushi restaurant is simply great for all the sea food lovers. The ample wooden furnishing and lightings, decorated within a vaulted glass and high ceiling establishment add a touch of elegance to this place. All said this 2 storey refreshingly different restaurant, Haru, is simply great not only in terms of its food and drinks but also the decor, atmosphere and service.

Hibachi is an interesting concept with chefs at your table side preparing your fancy. A real entertainer, with great views and separate stations for the different varieties of food. Although dilly-dallying with the chefs while eating might get you a few stares, especially when the chefs have to service other customers. Not a good idea for a relaxed full-of-conversation meal, but definitely great for a quick and a tasty bite. Events are held here too and this place can be rented as a venue for private parties.
Xochitl (pronounced "so-cheet") serves up a modern take on authentic Mexican cuisine, and a great variety of mixed drinks to go along. Seating is prompt and spacious in a warmly decorated hall, and the servers are knowledgeable and friendly-they'll make guacamole for you at the table to go with fresh tortilla chips. Try one of their tempting seafood dishes, such as their Vuelve a la Vida ("Return to Life"), a shrimp, octopus, and oyster cocktail served with jalapenos, tomatoes, and avocado. Or go for one of their hot dishes like the Pechuga de Pollo Rellena, a sesame-crusted chicken breast smothered in pepper sauce and served with fresh tortillas. The Xochitl lounge is a good option as well, with comfortable couches and a long bar.

There's also a comfy couch and oversized chairs for customers to relax on, and free wireless internet service is available to patrons.
Chef Jose Garces had come a long way since his graduation from culinary school. The Latin cuisines he dabbles in draw inspiration from Flamenco. Amada pays respect to this iconic Spanish tradition by organizing live music and dances once every week on the premises. The name of this restaurant means 'loved one' in Spanish and a lot of regulars will willingly vouch for it. Book in advance if you are interested in hosting a party or if you want to try the suckling pig.
