Stopped by today for lunch at the noodle bar and it seemed a great idea for a tasty quick lunch. To my surprise and the guest to my left and the later arriving guests to my right we could all agree that the service was subpar, rude and unfriendly. Not being judged on appearance I could say because everyone was... More

A unique atmosphere and décor made for a really superb celebratory evening. Great appetizers (lobster pot-stickers and giant shrimp), and the mains were great also - the special crab is very special, the steak and the whitefish were also very good. Our waiter Peter was one the best, happiest and most helpful we have experienced anywhere. Niggles? The wine-by-the-glass is... More

We went for lunch, average food as we were hungry but dim sum overcooked, my husbands garlic noodles were blah and my meal was rather average. The cost was 49.00 which for a good lunch I would not have minded but for plain uneventful food that we received seemed pricey.

The restaurant is fantastic. The atmosphere is unique, but the food is excellent. A perfect Asian Fushion blend on the menu, with tons of options. The bar is always inventing a unique and tasty drink. You can't go wrong!

Creative and delicious Asian fusion (the best from China, Japan, Vietnam, India, Korea blended with Western preparation). Expensive, but worth it

Love the deco in this restaurant. Open with high ceilings and comfortable cushions. Love the lobster potstickers. Sauces are excellent. Buddha rice and the garlic noodles with prawns were excellent. Calamari was flavorful. Food yummy. Flavors exploding in your mouth. Service was superb.

Savor tasty small (and slightly larger) dishes amid chic decor featuring reds and woods. The Asian fusion food was delicious and beautifully presented. Garlic noodles are a specialty and they were great, as was the kimchee rice. Well worth the time and money!

My husband and I are foodies and we really appreciated the creativity of the dishes. Great fusion and use of spices. Awesome garlic noodles and tapas. Don't go if you're on a budget! We easily spent $200 for 2 people for tapas, entrees, dessert and drinks.
