Most of the time I stray away from strip mall restaurants but we went here for a friends birthday. The decor inside was really nice and the service was outstanding. You need to be a little adventurous when it comes to food choices, but everything tasted delicious! We had grilled octopus, pears stuffed with crab meat and Gorgonzola cheese, goat... More

Been here a couple of times. The owner comes out to greet your, talk to you, and really shares his passion for food. The quality of the food really meets the passion of the owner. It's a pleasure to eat at a place where the food is more than just a means, but an art. I am hoping the wife... More

Had a business client close by to the restaurant. We walked in, they have a 12 dollar buffet. A lot of options, food is pretty good. I like that it is healthy and have a lot of salad options available.

My fiance and I recently attended the January 2015 'Cooking with Chef Ash' class. We fully enjoyed not only the demonstration of how to prepare the meal, but even more so the explanation of the processes used and how to stay true to the food. It is very evident why Chef Ash and his restaurant are so successful. He cooks... More
