Picture of the soft shell crab on the menu is nice but they... More

Was really looking forward to having dinner here and the menu, while fairly standard and basic, did cover all the bases. Unfortunately it didn't live up to initial thoughts. Service was very haphazard and sketchy with staff seemingly unable to handle a fairly busy Tuesday night trade. There was a distinct lack of care for customers. And to the food....it... More

We went to this restaurant with a baby and toddler. The staff were very friendly and went out of their way to accommodate us. Great food. Try the fried rice!
