Been here a couple of times. Lunches are always good, huge portions. Service needs a little work for dinner. Be prepared to receive LOTS of sauteed onions in your meals if it calls for any. Can not beat the 5$ Long Island Iced Teas all day everyday, great for sitting at the bar with friends for sushi and drinks.

My experience was a good one. The staff sat us quickly, the server was very attentive and on top of drink refills. My meal was good, the spicy basil chicken with fried rice (huge portion size). Not the best Asian food, but decent. My husband had two different rolls if sushi and he said they were both awful. He couldn't... More

Party of 7, seated right away on a Saturday evening. Everyone enjoyed their meals,taste and presentation were excellent, prices were reasonable, service was great, and no one could finish their meal because there was so much food. My wife and I had our leftovers for breakfast the next morning!

Not sure what happened with the other reviewers here that had bad experiences. My wife and I eat here on average once or twice a month. The Wonton Soup and the Spring Rolls are the best we've ever had. We frequently get Chicken Fried Rice and ask to have a lot of shrimp added in. It is fantastic. The Shrimp... More

I went with 3 coworkers and we ordered similar dishes - Pork bowl (one ordered beef) with rice and a side (soup or spring roll). Food came in reasonable time, was quite good, and we all found it to be plenty. There's a huge variety on the menu, so much that we haven't tried yet. All expressed interest in coming... More

Food: Chicken with broccoli; General Tso's chicken; Orange peel chicken; Bourbon chicken. Drink: Water, Milk, Cabernet and Chardonnay. Summary: Ridiculously overpriced food (higher price than a meal at PF Chang's--Lord I wish we'd gone to PF Chang's). Nasty quality (e.g. the chicken was low quality, mostly foul-tasting breading, and tasted of fish since it's assuredly prepared in the same uncleaned... More

The food here is always good. I love their "bento box" specials--which is a good value for the price and the amount of food served. The staff is usually extremely friendly and helpful. We come here often.
