Good sushi deal, slow service

I like to eat here on Sunday when the sushi is 1/2 price. Always delicious, good quality, and beautiful presentation. Servers are friendly, but several times it seemed to take forever to get our orders. Just don't stop here if you're in a rush! Otherwise I highly recommend. And they have a nice... read more

Excellent appetizers! Very prompt service! Main courses were a delight too! We were visiting and our local friends took us there. They had eaten there many times and highly recommended the restaurant. And we could see why. We were a bit surprised that for a weekend evening, there were not many people. Don't know why.

I went to this place a few years ago when it just opened. I was disappointed and didn't go back several years until yesterday. I was in the neighborhood and was surprised to see this place still open. I assumed that they are staying in business because they managed to improve. It turns out that they are now even worse...

My parents come here frequently and have raved about the food, so we decided to come for 1/2 price sushi Sunday. We made reservations, as we were a large party, for 4:30 - hoping to avoid the dinner rush. After getting our drinks, I had to remind the waitress that we were ready to order (we had been at our...

We had no expectations when we went to the Empire Asian Bistro - we were just looking for someplace to eat after a long drive. Wow! The food was some of the best we've ever had and I don't say that lightly. Our server was very attentive and efficient. Our only regret is we don't have anyplace comparable where we... More

Was hesitant to go here due to poor service reviews but was just passing through and really wanted Chinese food. Surprisingly the service was amazing. The two ladies who helped us were quite efficient and super sweet and helpful. I do not think I have ever had such a sweet and caring server. The food was pretty good. I had... More

I took my friend to this wonderful Asian bistro. My choice was the Orange Peeled Beef and it was very tasty. Good portions and choice beef. My friend ordered the Szechuan Sizzler and was quite happy with that choice. We also ordered an appetizer Tuna Roll that was excellent. Service was very efficient and the restaurant has a nice ambience.

Was brought here on business twice over several weeks for lunch. Ordered the Bento box each time with different pieces. Everything tastes great. Sushi is well made, and everything else is top notch. Looking forward to my next trip.

I ordered a traditional entree: Kung Pao chicken. It came with white rice and either soup or salad. I chose the soup. The won-ton soup came out quite fast. It had good flavor to the broth. When the main meal came out. It was a very generous portion. I took some home and made a 2nd meal out of it.... More
