Had the Hibachi shrimp. On previous trips have had Hibachi scallops and Pad Thai. All are excellent!. Tres leches for desert is excellent as well. Can't go wrong here!

Our first visit here, but definitely not the last. Outstanding food, good atmosphere, excellent service. Fried calamari light and crispy, excellent aioli sauce. Paella was perfectly cooked and seasoned, seafood stew fragrant and tasty. The scallops in parmesan dish was perfection, be sure to sop up all that delicious sauce with the bread.

I have been to this restaurant about five or six times and every meal has been excellent. Their food (particularly the seafood) is so fresh and has such great flavor. A couple meals that stand out in my mind is the Japanese Teriyaki Scallops - they give you such a great portion of scallops, cooked perfectly and the sauce is... More

This place is great. Have never ordered anything I didn't love. It's a weird mix but they do it all so well. The service is perfect - everyone is super friendly and I have never been without the manager/owner stopping by to check on us. The prices are very reasonable for the quantity and quality of the food and they... More

Wonderful Lunch restaurant: Taste, Presentation, Service, Atmosphere all Excellent!! We arrived during lunch time, parking was a little difficult but worth the struggle to park. We started off with Miso Soup and Hot Sour Soup: Soups had lots of hearty chunkiness My miso soup had just the right amount of tofu and seaweed. I also requested some green onions to... More

Love the Dilworth area, and this restaurant fits it well. The atmosphere was casual with some nice decorative touches. If I had to give some negatives it would be that the menus were a bit beaten up and that some of the staff appeared to be a bit more casual than I usually like. For example one of the staff... More

I have eaten here for years but wanted my husband to try it with me. I usually eat lunch here and they are closed for lunch on Sat/Sun which is usually the only time my husband has for lunch in Charlotte. We live north of Charlotte about 30 minutes out. I always get their paella and we got it again... More

This is the best Pad Thai my wife has had since we lived in SE Asia. Tender noodles, full on peanut flavor, just excellent. I had the Mongolian Crispy Noodles. The server was very helpful to explain the sauce is on the bottom and I,needed to stir up up dish first. Crispy noodles, perfectly cooked shrimp, tender, juicy beef and... More

This was a last minute decision, before a show downtown and what a great decision it was! There is inside & outside dining available. We stayed indoors as it was raining off and on, but the outdoor area filled up as we were there, because it is covered. Started off with a cocktail - the bartender didn't skimp on alcohol.-... More
