All of us were pleased when our combination orders were set before us in what I think are called bento boxes. Portions were... read more

We have been eating here since it has opened and it is just simply the best around. We travel 70 minutes round trip about once per month for takeout just because no one compares to this place anywhere around. Highly Recommended!!!

We called at 5:00 pm to place a small order for three people. After asking for a pu-pu platter, we were told the restaurant was not taking orders until 3 more hours from now. Clearly there are serious staffing problems and the management cannot handle their own business. From working in the food industry myself, it is so simple to... More

After our previous visit, we had heard a rumour this restaurant had been revised (new management?) Today we found the rumor was true. Service was very good & food was impressive, We will be returning.

This is the only Chinese restaurant we go to. The food is consistently good and always hot and fresh. They have a great cocktail lounge with a nice big bar and the bar staff are excellent.

Love the food here, portions aren't quite as big as I'm used to so sharing is less of an option but the prices are still decent. Bit of a splurge when buying for the whole family but great for date night

I think consistency is important, and today, Green Tea struggled. The food was cold, meaning either the waitress was slow in delivering our meals, or fire wasn't the cook's friend. Either way, food luke-warm or cold is not a good thing.
