One of the more private tables, this is good choice for a larger group as it would be quieter and easier to chat.

First review
This location has closed. Gigi’s Asian Bistro & Dumpling Bar is a higher-end Asian restaurant located in the Galleria Mall in Houston. Dishes here have a common Asian theme but include food from a number of Asian cuisines. More extensive offerings include salads, dim sum, noodles and rice dishes. The restaurant is open for lunch and dinner. Seating is concentrated in one main room, but there also are a couple of bars and a section with private tables.

Gigi’s opened in 2008 and has one location. The mall entrance area with a small bar and a few tables connects to the main dining room in the back. Off of the dining room is a long hallway with private tables along one side and then a second bar next to the exterior entrance. The bar area closest to the mall is primarily for larger groups. The main dining room can get noisy so if privacy and a quieter environment are preferred, one of the private tables intended for parities of 5-10 is a better option.

Eating here latter at night worked well because the main dining room was less crowded and less noisy. Both the Thai chicken coconut soup and the vegetable dumpling appetizers were served within a few minutes of ordering and both were enjoyable. The dumplings had an edge though with some delicious spinach and carrot ingredients and a soy type dipping sauce. The server, who was attentive and courteous, recommended a chicken cashew special for an entrée. The portion was small for a $20 dish but had an appetizing mild spicy taste, and with soft and tender chicken and fresh vegetables. A chocolate dessert produced by an outside bakery had a divinely rich taste, not to be missed if you crave chocolate. As for drinks, a few sips of a much too sweet martini failed to inspire the taste buds, but Gigi’s took it off the bill. Gigi’s is a bit too casual to work as a fine dining experience but it definitely works as an upscale and stylish dining option when you are in the mood for Asian food.
