I ordered Chicken Pad Thai, and I woke up the next day with a migraine that was so bad...I would have taken a hammer to the head to take me out of my suffering. My stomach was upset..bubble gut. The restaurant says they don't use MSG...that's a lie...MSG is the only preservative that makes your head hurt. These symtoms went... More

I come here every time I visit my sister in Pasadena. I order the steak salad every time. The steak is perfectly marinated and seasoned. I wish they sold their dressing! Please consider it!! I can't wait to come back!

Food was good but so is all the food on South Lake. Room was too warm, tables to close to each other. I've been with two groups to this place both times the reservations were lost.

Hands down to one of the best asian fusion restaurant I've had over the past few years! We were visiting Caltech but decided to grab a quick dinner before our wanderlust took control of our body and mind, and Abricott is the most viewed restaurant on yelp in the area so this is a no brainer choice. This may sound... More

Went to lunch here with a friend. Had pad thai which was ok, she had a burger which looked great. portions are generous-salads are huge! The place has an interesting energy-decorated with art and books arranged creatively. has a room to seat a large party with a long table, plus booths and smaller tables. Would like to come back and... More

Located on South Lake, Abricot is unusually decorated with books and other items. but it works. There is an indoor/outdoor patio and dogs are allowed. The menu has something for everyone. American breakfast is served until 430 PM (my kids loved the large waffles). There is a good selection of Thai accented salads and main courses. In addition, Pho, Ramen,... More

My daughter and I have been to this restaurant several times and I love it, love it, love it. It is really awesome food for a small price. You get large servings and the décor is cool and fun. You can even buy the art right off the wall.

This restaurant was a bit too noisy for my taste, but the food was decent. It's in a great location, but I expected something different. The service was "ok", I thought it could've been a little better. Maybe we were just there on an "off" day...I'll try it again sometime to see.

This is a cute spot with tasty food. I came with a group and dined in the semi-private 'library' styled room in the back. I think they're a bit of a fusion restaurant with a large menu. Food: Pho & Banh Mi - both were tasty and seemed to use high quality ingredients. I was satisfied with both, but neither... More
