“Some New York restaurants hide behind unmarked entrances and velvet ropes. Laut hides behind its menu: a pan-Asian thicket of sushi, Thai soups and Chinese noodles,” said Julia Moskin of the New York Times. While the menu might be robust enough to provide shelter during hide-and-seek, the restaurant doesn't sacrifice quality for quantity, as the Asian fusion cuisine has garnered a Michelin star.

The food owes its authentic flavor to the owners, Malaysian natives Kathy Wong and Michael Bong, whose generations-old Malaysian recipes sing a culinary siren song to both city natives and tourists. The couple's kitchen staff only works with fresh ingredients, which go into the restaurant's signature sauces and flavor-infusions, including sweet chili sauce, tamarind dressing, and coconut rice. The eatery also houses a sushi bar, where the chefs do more rolling than an inner tube dropped from the top of Mount Everest. Its ample options and welcoming dining room make Laut “well worth a visit,” says Moskin. Laut is the parent restaurant to Pasar Malam in Williamsburg, Brooklyn also featured on Groupon.

This is a fabulous restaurant. The food is delicious and the ambiance is upscale casual. The staff is very professional but friendly and accommodating. And it also happens to be vegetarian, but don't let that stop you carnivores, the food is exquisite.

Everything was fantastic! We had the soft shell crab appetizer, the national combo and the steamed fish with saki. It was all amazing!!
