If two heads are better than one, then two cuisine-noggins fused into one restaurant-body are better than one. Polycephalify your palate with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of delicious Asian-fusion fare and non-alcoholic drinks at Bistro Babu-san, which is located in The Village at Fairview Shopping Center.
The casual menu of soups, salads, wraps, stir-fries, curries, and skewers celebrates the billion-year high-school reunion of Pangaea by integrating a panoply of Indian, Thai, Japanese, Chinese, Vietnamese, and Korean cuisines. Wraps are stuffed with delectable edibles such as Korean-style steak ($8.25), which is marinated, grilled, and lovingly swaddled in naan or roti flatbreads and served with a side of Thai fries, kimchi slaw, Cool Beans salad, or salad. Wok wranglers can lasso sumptuous stir-fry or curry plates with their choice of meatilicious proteins or vegetarian chewables. Lap up a luscious Bombay Tomato Butter plate with chicken ($8.50), or inject taste buds with the Thai Jungle Curry with vegetables and tofu ($8.25), a piquant concoction of coconut red curry, lemongrass, and coquettish glances.
The interior borrows colors from the richly hued palette of Thai tapestries, which is further authenticated by a wall-sized display of Asian spices. This casual bistro makes a welcome respite from a day spent trawling the Village at Fairfield for ruffled dust ruffles and stylish tam-o'-shanters. Grab a Groupon to arm yourself against the burgeoning threat of a mid-shopping hunger coma.
- Indian chaat salad sounds interesting, with mixed beans and spiced peanuts in a mint yogurt; so does thin Thai fries served with curry aioli. A kids' menu goes beyond the usual chicken tenders with "Chinese chicken noodle soup" and chow mein. – Teresa Gubbins, Pegasus News
- Their food is really really good. We have ordered few dishes and ate family style so we got to try many dishes. Their teriyaki beef sticks are so yummy that we had to order that dish again – Rukmini V., Yelp
- Chicken samosas - Delicious. Prodigiously stuffed pockets featuring chicken, onion, cilantro, peanuts, ginger, tumeric and lime juice, these were real winners. Great texture, good crisp. – Brad N., Yelp
