Good meals

Massive menu, pretty much can't go wrong with your order. I really liked the fried pineapple rice and the sesame chicken. I didn't love the sushi and there aren't many choices. A bit pricey for what it is though.

We are that lucky! We enjoyed a most wonderful time dinning at Baumgarts. We were a group of classmates graduated from Sheshiao- an elementary school from Taipei, Taiwan. Before the celebration of the 60th next March in Taiwan, a mini-reunion was planned. A few of us had eaten at Baumgarts, recommended to meet here for the round table get-together high... More

The menu is different, eclectic, and the place is very clean but, wow, is it overpriced! Skip it and go to the Livingston Diner which is close by.

They have a nice diverse menu with a whole range of Asian fare. They also have some nice salads, and some great choices for kids. There is also a decent size outdoor seating area. I have eaten here many times and always like what I get. My favorite is the healthy creation where you pick what is in it. The... More

Having read some reviews of this location, I wasn't sure what to expect, so I was delighted to find the décor lovely, the service attentive and the food plentiful and delicious. We tried some new dishes and ordered some items for the table to share and were not disappointed with the presentation and flavor. The only thing I would change... More

Went here with my parents and was surprised to find asian food with a western name. The Chinese food is actually quite authentic and pretty good. I wasn't crazy about the salted duck though. But the shredded beef and the shrimp was very good. Espresso ice cream was also something I'd go back for. The prices weren't bad at all.... More

I am sure many who dine here have a great variety of reactions - and all good. The menu appeals to the children (and the child in adults) by providing choices reminiscent of soda fountains from the last century ... (yes, the 1950s and 1960s were in the last century). This includes shakes, egg creams, great sandwiches and desserts -... More

Went here tonight after reading the reviews posted. Wow! The service was too notch, a woman nearby dropped her credit card and they were right there to pick it up for her. You feel like a special guest the way the servers are there any time you need anything. Super friendly too. I ordered a dish off the light menu,... More

My 10-year-old daughter and I recently had lunch here. She had the lo mein, $6.99 (from the children's menu) and I ordered the chicken teriyaki, $10.99. The waiter was nice enough to substitute broccoli instead of the beans with her lunch. Mine came with miso soup, sushi, salad and an egg roll. Both meals were delicious. Her lunch, also, came...
