“Delish fried seafood”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 26, 2012

What's not to like? Super fast service, incredible fried seafood (we had fish, shrimp and oysters), great french fries, and wonderful "fumi" salad (like coleslaw with ramen noodles and a little sweeter than normal coleslaw). Very good value!

“Lunch”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 12, 2012

Service was slow for a noon meal - it wasn't crowded - but the food was good, ample, and nice service.
