SquareMeal Review of Chino Latino at the Riverbank Park Plaza Hotel

This sultry, dimly lit bar-restaurant on the ground floor of the Park Plaza hotel is definitely more ‘Chino’ than ‘Latino’. The menu incorporates fashionable dishes from Japan, plus occasional Thai & Vietnamese offerings, while the supposedly ‘Latin’ bar serves creditable cocktails from across the globe. Fish & seafood dominate; highlights include tender spicy squid encased in a crispy crumb, grease-free prawn tempura & sinfully rich black cod. The tasting menu for two includes all three dishes, plus several dim sum, small plates, sides & sushi, from which soft-shell crab nigiri stands out. Add various sakés (including unusual Champagne-style numbers), friendly staff & a low-level buzz from fellow diners & you’ve the makings of a good night out. On Thursdays, live music in the bar brings the missing Latin note.

Divine food and even better cocktails, lots of attention to detail. The restaurant was completely dead on a Friday night though, not more than 1/3 full despite being below a hotel – but the service was good and the food more than made up for it. Well designed with warm lighting and intimate bar area despite the floor space. Would do far better if more centrally located but I will be returning.
