Great staff. Our host was fabulous! Tried several things. Sushi was delicious, dim sum was okay, the coconut mojito was excellent. This was recommended by a Delta agent & was an excellent choice.

Our first visit was not exciting but this recent 2014 trip was a game changer, thanks to the our server Max from Lusaka. He was beyond awesome. Max gave us best the food recommendations and stellar 5 star customer service. The food was outstanding! The lamb potstickers was out of this world! My word I am craving it right now.... More

We had their dim sums. Really not good. Couldn't finish my plate. Our starters were really bad as well. Very far from a top notch restaurant.

Will continue to dine here, and it's... More

We were in a big rush, but had one last friend to meet before we scooted off to the airport. Beluga were kind enough to quickly put together a table for all of us and take our drink and food orders within 5 minutes of them opening. Quick and efficient service - delicious sushi too!
