The massive, multi-level premises are theme park in style, with ornate carvings and nooks and crannies galore. The food draws its inspiration from dishes at the lower end of ethnic restaurant menus;mainly Thai, Malaysian, and Vietnamese;then mutates them with unexpected flavor enhancements: fresh dill in a Vietnamese-style lobster summer roll, for example. The pork vindaloo, rather than being hot, is sweet and sour like a sloppy joe, but the serving is unexpectedly generous.
