We went to celebrate a special time together, and it was certainly that. My husband usually doesn't like Asian foods, but I suggested something he might like, and like it he did! He wants to go back for another occasion we have coming up!

My second visit was just as good as my first time. The BBQ Sea Bass was awesome, soup was great, other chicken and seafood dishes made for a wonderful family-style dining experience. It has a become a required stop on each visit to Livermore!
