Bamboo columns and multicolored walls make a groovy backdrop for the crowds that throng this restaurant. The bar doles out Tokyo coladas and the Ginger Cosmo for booze-fueled good cheer, and diners tuck into plates of snackable standards like shrimp dumplings and barbecued spareribs. While the kitchen can sometimes be sloppy, it’s still a fun spot: Stop by for the Sunday dim-sum burlesque night.
