Hawkers Asian Street Food
- Open Now
Went during the soft open. There were some expected service hiccups. Had the '78 Jungle Bird cocktail which was decent. Expansive and fairly varied menu. The curry duck noodles and spicy chicken buns were both great. Cool atmosphere and definitely going to be a great spot when the weather gets nice.
We came on Saturday around 12-1 PM. I found their first hostess to be a bit robotic stating some long speech about the wait and a seating area and so on with no smile or expression on her face - it was a bit off putting being the first impression. We waited roughly 20 minutes and TONS of people were pouring in while we waited. The other hostess referenced in another review with the bye Felicia shirt on had 3 people in her face about the wait and the phone ringing and was still very kind to us and helpful while getting us seated. Our server, Juan, handled his tables very well. The runners accidentally provided us with another tables dish which caused some confusion - but it was a great dish in which I didnt initially order, so I was pleasantly surprised. We didnt like the crunchy balls at all - I think theyd be better with a sweeter sauce opposed to the one provided and the crispy noodles seemed excessive - the server noted we didnt eat the rest of that dish and took it upon himself to get us a comp which was super, super kind and thoughtful as Its a new restaurant and its not like someone is going to like everything they try, so I found that very impressive being that we didnt say anything at all about it and he took that upon himself. Awesome job, Juan! The curry and the noodle dish we got accidentally were our favorites! We plan to be back! Great job to the team for being brand new, extremely busy and handling it all!
Great food and great service! The food was delicious and everything is priced to try more! Even my seven-month-old loved the food. Most things can be made vegetarian or vegan friendly which was perfect for us. The purple coconut sticky rice with mangos was the perfect way to end the meal. Will be back for sure!
Went to Hawkers Sunday night (first weekend open) and was beyond pleased with the service and the food. It was very busy, but each staff member was helpful and pleasant throughout the busy rush, our food came out promptly and the food itself was AMAZING. Highly recommend!
2/18/19: Everything was great except of the five spice fish tacos. 2/23/19 Sat at the bar this time. Cam in around 3 pm. The bartenders seemed really flustered. Cant tell who is a bartender and who isnt. They dont acknowledge you when you sit down. Brought out wrong food a few times. No silverware available when I had the food. Food was great as usual. Just wish the bar area was more organized. They need more than 2 bartenders working on a Saturday. For being a chain Im surprised by this. Ill def be back though!
