  • Huh…we’ve tried it once, and the dishes ranged from fantastic to terrible. It was still a pretty good deal, though, all things considered.

      Same experience. Some fantastic, a lot of not good at all. Sort of a wild experience– for the price though, a good eating adventure. I’d recommend going in with the mindset that they are really experimenting here, and not everything will be a hit.

    I went in August with 3 friends, and overall it was a disappointment. We had a 9pm reservation, but their dim sum cart only came by twice, and with really sparse (2-3 plates) options. I had much higher expectations. I know it’s a pop up to test out things while they ramp up for their permanent location, so it’s cool to have the test opportunity, but given all of the options in the neighborhood, I’d have no interest in going back.

    I went by myself last month and really enjoyed myself. I sat at the bar and had a great view of the food being made and the cooks process. And at $30.00 for six courses it really was a steal. Not everything was my cup of tea, but I enjoyed the adventure. I’ve actually made resos to go back next month.

    I tried eating at Annoy House just once. It was a busy night & the guy seating people was so unpleasant I was permanently put off the place.

    Agree with other comments. Cheap price, but food varies wildy from excellent to tasteless. Menu was poorly compose – ending on a heavy meat platter and then a sausage dish. We skipped out before desert – didn’t feel worth staying. Dim sum cart came a handful of times, very few plates on it and some dishes cold. Cocktails dull. Staff absolutely terrible, rude, bored and unhelpful.

    Go if you want cheap
    Avoid if you want a satisfying night out with good food and good service.
