“Tatu - Nothing Special”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 23, 2013

We arrived early for our reservation and since our party was incomplete, we went to bar for a before dinner drink. When we asked to see a wine list, we were told they really did not have most of the wines listed. When I asked about beer, the bartender in an supposed Asian specialty restaurant went through a list to American standards, some European beers and then finally said 'we also have some Asian beers', bot did not name a single one.
We were seated at the time reserved, drink orders taken and served. The food order was taken and the waiter was somewhat perplexed when a special roll, not on the sushi menu was ordered. This has not been a problem at any of the other local sushi places. When it was delivered, it was two wrong rolls. When we tried to get it corrected, the server who delivered the rolls tried to figure out the error and returned with another confused order, Finally another server got involved and returned with something that had the requested ingredients, but was skimpy and sloppily executed. A rice-less roll should not be a show stopper at an upscale establishment.
My daughter and her husband enjoyed their rolls, a dragon and another specialty roll. The also ordered wild mushroom pot-stickers that were doughy with an uninspired filling, though nicely presented with asparagus and a tasty though unidentified variety of mushroom,
Wanting something different, I ordered cashew chicken, though the portion was generous, the tasting experience was on par with the $5.99 special at a local Chinese take-out.
The desert menu was not interesting, we went to Kilwins for ice cream. They did put this big cotton candy ornamental offering on the table with the bill.
Overall, the dining experience was not consistent with the price.

“Food and drinks were good, but our waiter sucked!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 9, 2013

We just had dinner here with some friends/coworkers...my husband and I had been here before and had a good experience, but this time was the total opposite. The restaurant was not very busy but we only saw our waiter when we ordered our drinks, food, and then check. Never asked if we wanted another drink, nor did he refill our waters, nothing. Usually they ask how your food was, but we didn't even get that. If I were just rating the food and drinks then it was good, but the service plays a big role in it.
Arthur, I'm sorry, but your tip definitely reflected your service. Gonna have to get it together if you want to make it in this industry.

“Pad thai at its best”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2013

Just went it to try with some friends!!! place was great, we were served very quickly and the staff who was taken care of us was very patient and explained to us the menu. After the ordersbeen taken care of, we soon received our orders and the food and the chicken and shrimp pad thai was great. place was not so much expensive and the portion was really good.

“The worst EVER”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed April 14, 2013 via mobile

Please don't waste your time with this place--it is a complete disaster! We went for my sister's birthday and we were very disappointed! The staff was very rude and inattentive! It took forever to get a drink or even the attention of a waiter to place our order. The food was the worst I have ever tasted and one member of our party never even got their dinner. Avoid at all costs or else your whole evening will be ruined as ours was ruined.

“What a disaster!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed April 14, 2013

We went here for my sisters birthday. We had a party of 11 people. After being there for 3 and a half hours, we left hungry, no money, and tee-off. The whole experience was terrible! Even from the start, the hostess had poor communication. We were the first to arrive, being 4 of us who drove together. We asked if we could be seated at our table. She sits us at a table for 4 people. (I don't know where the other 7 were suppose to sit). It took her 15 minutes to figure that out. Now we are at the table . The waiter comes to take drink orders. We asked for our check to be separate from the rest of the group. He said he couldn't do that. That's when my husband got upset. ( I don't like it when restaurants won't do this, because in a big group, the one most likely to get stiffed in the confusion at the end is the waiter). He took orders one-at-a-time. Which got delivered one-at-a-time. One girl grabbed him, saying she was hungry, & wanted to place her order. He took her order, then left the table. I called out to him to take mine, he was gone! Another girl finally got her soup and wanted to cancel her entree. The birthday girl complained to the manager who brought over 2 platters of desserts, free of charge, the only redeeming quality!
