The food was just ok! It's sad because this place is in a great location and should be more busy then what it was. The place was honestly empty, they had a love band with a total of 4-5 couples. My husbands drink was strong which for him was good. The menu didn't have much on it but we got... More

Stroll around the Pagoda and enjoy the peaceful garden and ponds. We ate lunch in the upper level of the Pagoda. Great view. Appetizers (small plate) for lunch. One was quite small in portions. Both were good. Service was a little slow so be careful in going during a limited lunch break.

Consistently good food, friendly and prompt service; coupled with the best Asian garden. A great idea: sip tea and enjoy the koi. A great indoor/outdoor dining experience. Extremely pet friendly.

This is a super place to have a small event (10-50 people). There is not much capacity here but they will let you bring in a catering company after paying a small lease charge. The view is super. It is at the bottom of a small marina that looks out into the Elizabeth River.
