This is one of my favorite places to eat in the Galleria area. I like the Dim Sum. The atmosphere is very relaxing and has a nice romantic ambiance. This is a great place.

We went here for brunch this weekend with a few friends. We all had the dumpling. This on the surface is a good deal but the overall quality of the dumplings is fair. Few were really nice some tasted like they were packaged/frozen. The service...More

The best Hong Kong Fried rice, it is a meal itself, best I have ever had anywhere. The Shu Mai is a favorite, I order it as soon as I sit down, no matter what.

Loved the private dining experience. Everything that we ordered was delicious and beautifully presented. Our waiter was very inattentive....we will try again in the event that the others are better.

Unique decor. Although I didn't get to eat in one, I liked the private dining alcoves. The edamame dumplings were rich yet light, and addictive. The spicy lamb was beautifully presented, and perfectly cooked as were the vegetables. It was not as spicy as I...More

The name is a bit misleading. I have expected a wide variety of asian dishes, but found mostly Thai dishes on their menu. It was OK with me, since I really like the Thai food, but my kids wanted to have something Chinese, a little...More

Description
Gigi's Asian Bistro & Dumpling Bar is located in The Galleria with entrances from the street on Westheimer and the interior of the Galleria. The menu is created to give your palate a tour of authentic Asian Flavors from China, Thailand, Vietnam, Singapore, and Maylasia in a setting that is handsome with a sexy, Asian vibe. If you are a group of 6-10 persons, ask for "Alley" tables, where each cubbyhole is curtained off from prying eyes. 15,000 silk cherry blossoms hang in the sky of our main dining room, "The Cherry Blossom Room," creating a warm and elegant atmosphere. Gigi's signature dishes are Heavenly Beef, Shaking Beef, Coconut Green Curry Chicken, Crispy Whole Fish and Japanese Eggplant. From our Dim Sum menu, guests enjoy ShuMai (shrimp & crabmeat), shrimp dumplings, & Chicken Potstickers. Quench your thirst on our chilled Lychee Martinis & Singapore Slings.
