Q Restaurant in Orland Park offers a unique dining experience

By Ray Hanania

Q Restaurant in Orland Park is a new Asian fusion that offers a mix of Vietnamese and French cuisine. The design of the restaurant's dining room is very impressive and the food is even better. It not only offers a phenomenal menu of meal selections and appetizers, it also offers Martinis of all sorts.

As we ate, in the background, the restaurant was playing French music that gave it an atmosphere of being in the 1950s.

The service was attentive but not annoying. The waiter was very professional and courteous.

We ordered Shrimp rolls with bacon, mozzarella, and sriracha pineapple sauce. Sriracha sauce is a type of hot sauce or chili sauce made from a paste of chili peppers, distilled vinegar, garlic, sugar, and salt and is named after the city of Si Racha in Thailand.

It was great.

I ordered a bowl of Noodle Soup which was so good I could have just had that for the luncheon meal. It was packed with tasty chicken and a variety of Asian veggies. It also comes with Tofu instead of chicken.

Our dinner consisted of two plates from the dinner menu, which the restaurant offers as an option during lunch. I had the lobster and shrimp dinner and Alison had Seafood Lover which offers an assortment of blue sea scallop, shrimp, crab meat, calamari, crunchy noodle, herbal brandy red curry sauce.

I also tasted the coconut Martini. It tasted so nice. I'm not a big Martini drinker, but I did sip it during the meal.

The dining room really set the stage for a great dinner. As soon as you walk into the restaurant, you are impressed. It reflects that kind of colonial Vietnamese culture that was common prior to the devastating war of the 1960s. It was so enjoyable. And perfect.
