Good Food

The food is a mix of Asian style dishes and some American food. It is all tasty and good, but not stupendous. Service varies. It is comfortable and eclectic in decor.

This is a casual, convenient, and comfortable family/ friend local dining spot where tasty Asian eclectic is served by a very friendly and accommodating staff. It is a very clean restaurant, with modern decor and booth seating similar to a diner, (and outdoor seating as well). The service is very good, and my faves, beef with mango and shrimp lo... More

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

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.

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
