“Good Asian food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 6, 2013 via mobile

I am not big on Asian food but Went here on a groupon, was glad we did we will be back. Food cooked perfect and had a great taste. A little hard to find but well worth the challenge.

Service was about it! Food just okay at best. Atmosphere is nice. I have had better at a buffet. Wouldn't ever go back, the sushi was not good, out if Tofu and several different wines also.

“#1 crititcal violator for the Spfld heath inspections”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2013

We ate there when it first opened and we had a stir fry dish that tasted really bad. The mushrooms were old or something, but we haven't been back. Look at the restaurant inspections for Greene County and they are always on top of the list!

“I will never Return to this Restaurant- Used to be my Favorite. New management is Terrible!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed June 29, 2013

I first want to start off by saying that this used to be my favorite restaurant since the day it opened but now that the original owner had moved away and the new management has taken over.

Not only has there be many negative changes with the quality of service but the wait staff and chefs seem to have all changed.

I just want to say that I am incredibly disappointed with the way that we were not only treated throughout the evening on Friday, June 27th, 2013, but just the way that management handled issues with food.

We arrived at 8:20pm and we did not receive our meals until 9pm and just to clarify there was only 1 other table in the entire restaurant and they already had their food.

The items on the menu that we ordered were a Vegetarian Tofu Ramen Noodles, Sweet & Sour Chicken, and Panko Encrusted Chicken.

The Vegetarian Tofu Ramen Noodles had chicken in it and both the Chicken dishes were brought the table cold.

Upon notifying our waitress that the vegetarian dish had multiple pieces of chicken in it. We were met with disrespectful skepticism and had to physically take the chicken pieces out of the soup to show them.

Additionally, we noticed that two of our dishes were cold and much smaller than previous dishes.

The server's tone immediately changed to agressive and confrontational. Instead of offering to cook a replacement dish or attempt any resolution. The waitress demanded that we pay and that there was nothing that she could do. When she got the new manager to come over to the table it only escalated the situation.

In the end we were told "Fine, Just leave." We did just that, we will never go there again and we will never suggest this restaurant.

This coming from a couple that loved this place before and ate there on a weekly basis. It's very disappointing what's happened here in just a few short months since Arthur (the previous owner/operator) has been gone. Sadly, you're better off taking your money elsewhere.
