Great food!

This restaurant has made good use of a building that used to be a family house. There are several rooms of tables, but none too large or too small. The food was good, and the atmosphere nice. Excellent service, too. Prices were like the rooms - not too expensive, but not cheap. When the server... read more

I have been eating here since they opened and have not had one bad experience ever. It can look empty because the parking is in the rear. It is a quirky and charming little place that serves great Asian food. (I think the best on this side of the river.) The owners and staff are always friendly and the food... More

I love this place. It is definitely one of our favorite restaurants. Food is always hot and delicious and I think they have the best egg rolls. Never had a bad experience here. I highly recommend this place.

My wife and I love Asian food. Having said that we do not particularly life Asian buffets. The food sits out for hours and usually consists of processed and/or frozen foods only. These restaurants are usually more for quantity than quality. Even when you try to order a single item they just take it off the buffet and throw it... More

The food is average. DO NOT get the sushi. This is not a sushi place. The fried items are the best. The place is small and crowded and the seating is uncomfortable. It is only a step above a self-serve Chinese buffet.

Great place to relax and enjoy good food at a fair price. Service with a smile. Quite and relaxing without loud music. Owners family working and grandchildren playing in a corner lets you know families are important here.

My mom and I stopped in here on a whim while she was in town, and I'm glad we did. I enjoyed the food and the service was excellent. The only thing I didn't like were the somewhat personal items around the place (as someone mentioned earlier, it looks like they may live there also?). Other than that, I loved... More

well it is a chinese or japense resturant ( i think chinese) there was lots of personal decorations that belonged to the owner sitting around in there and their grocery bags and groceries made us think they lived there in the resturant, a chinese lady who ran it her baby named chloe or something like that about 16 months old...

I ate lunch at The Onion. I had miso soup and sushi. They were both good. The outside of the place looks questionable, but it really is good food. The people are really friendly as well. I'll go back for sure.
