The whole place reeks of cigar smell because of an outdoor lounge where people smoke non-stop. The food was average, and the service was really slow because they have only one cook.
The worst part is that they got the balls to slap on a 20% gratuity for the kind of service they provide, for our party of six, which amounts to over $20.
I have never posted a bad reviews even after numerous bad restaurant experiences. This did it for me. I posted the same review on yelp.
I have been a fan since 2ooo..Well i must say equator has grew as much as i have. The new remodeled place is unique and the food....wow...i did not asian food could be so tasty and for the price, can't complain. we are planning a group party here and can't wait to enjoy the cool bar and take pictures of the great atmosphere. love it..
Definitely a place to go back to again and again. Food was excellent. Not your traditional fare. If you want the same ol stuff you can get elsewhere, don't bother treating yourself to this place. It's very unique and satisfying. Service was top notch and can't say enough about the food.
People at work have been buzzing about the food here, so my department and I went today. This place is a hidden GEM! During lunch the Pad Thai $8 and Beef Mignon $9 were excellent…this is quality and taste. The service was great maybe because the server explained things well and was very helpful. We didn't have to wait for more than 3 minutes to get seated so that was nice. One drawback, an art piece on the wall is dark my manager didn’t’ like it but he loved food. So you can look pass that.
The Equator is a favorite place to eat for my friends, co-workers, and myself. It has that artsy and eccentric decor, and we love to sit outside. The food is very tasty and Jack has outdone himself with cooking some of the best tasting food in town. Everybody at the Equator makes you feel at home and we enjoy the great service. This place atracts the best and friedliest people in Pasadena. We hope you all get a chance to enjoy it. See you there.
What a great place! Love to hang out in the patio with coffee, the food is great, just like a close neighborhood. Try the new food menu, you'll love it. My first stop whenever I get back to Pasadena from Las Vegas.
my experience at the equator was extraordinary, the asian cuisine is a must have, loved the orange chicken and dumplings. the bar has a great variety on drinks, bartenders are very knowledgeable and attentive. the equators interior is one of a kind, a must see, upscale rather trendy night life at the equator. two thumbs up on my scale.
I use to come here for coffee. I recently visited to find that the whole place has been remodeled and now they serve a great Asian fusion style food with a full bar. I had the dumplings they serve over the Weekend and it was unbeleavable. Must try it.
