Tiger Lil's is a unique combination of Asian restaurant, pub and cocktail lounge. While the emphasis is on communal meals and shared dishes, they take the bibulous aspect of a good meal seriously. Unlike your typical cheap and cheerful Asian restaurant, there's a full selection of imported beers and a great cocktail list to compliment the dishes. Clocking in at $15 to $18, the cocktails aren't cheap, but they are genuinely impressive. Alongside all the classics, the bar has crafted its own in-house concoctions to get you where you need to be. The signature drink is Papa San, a combination of Jose Cuervo Agavero Tequila, Marie Brizard Parfait Amour, cucumber and ??a few secret ingredients'.
The actual decor is a mix of traditional and contemporary Asian influences. Think coloured lanterns covering the ceiling, East Asian statues, long communal tables and a liberal dash of artwork on the walls. If you're looking for something a little more intimate there are four private booths available, a separate courtyard and a sunken lounge. Drop in on a Friday or Saturday night and you'll have DJs playing funky house to accompany your meals and cocktail sampling.
