“Let's hope for the best.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 7, 2012 via mobile

A lot of places have failed in this loction. Let's hope this one stays around. Service started out great. The food looked great. My soup came first and it was just ok...bland at best. Atmosphere is nothing special. Food had ok taste and price was avg. Place got busy as the night went on from 630 pm to 730pm. It is a byob. I will be back but when I get really hungry...ps I want to stop at a WAWA on the way home....I was still hungry...sorry

“Tasty, inexpensive Asian food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 26, 2012

We were staying in the area and tried this place on a Tuesday evening and it was about 1/3 filled. We split a large bowl of pork noodle soup which was expertly dished out by the waiter. We also had very good, tasty moo shu chicken. Tea was included. All this for a very low $18. Our only complaint was that the soup was somewhat bland--however after adding pepper and a little hot sauce it was very good. There is easy free street parking in the area.

“Saturday evening June 23, 2012 disaster”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2012

I went with my wife and daughter at 9pm on Saturday June 23 - we are regulars year round and fans of the chef and some of the staff. The restaurant was crowded and the staff, kitchen, and management were completely overwhelmed. Customers were complaining that they hadn't gotten served anything after being seated for over an hour. Customers were getting up and walking out complaining. The staff looked miserable, and they told us we shouldn't bother to stay because we likely wouldn't get any entrees, but perhaps they could get us some appetizers within an hour. We decided to be loyal and supportive and wait (we didn't have reservations but that didn't seem to make a difference at that point based on some conversations with other customers). After about 10 minutes, one of the managers started slamming and throwing dishes and silverware about 6 feet from us, and cursing and screaming, startling everyone in earshot and sight. He did this again about a minute later, and we decided to leave (I saw a couple of people take out their phones and start recording, so maybe some video will surface - it was like a Kitchen Nightmare rant - so unprofessional and uncivilized). We stood outside for about 5 minutes deciding where to go (we ended up at Kitaro which was surprisingly great), and saw that manager go into the Wawa, get a pack of smokes and sit by the dumpster. Sadly, this restaurant will fail, like Leung's China Dumpling, Ventnor Wok, and BYO Grille.
