“Long lines but good food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 1, 2013

Often don't choose to eat here because of having to wait in line at dinner time. But when I've gone I have found the food to be good. The decor is great and it's hard to say no to dessert after eyeing the cheesecakes in the lobby. Portions tend to the giant size, so be careful when ordering or you'll be taking a lot home!

“Always a challenge to decide what to get!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 31, 2013

Menu is vast and diverse that I can never decide what to get. Could come here everyday and never repeat the same order. Hard to save room for dessert with all the huge servings. You definetly get your money's worth.

“Excellent Food Long Wait”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 31, 2012

The food was great but unfortunately the wait was an hour on Saturday evening. The staff was friendly, they did offer us to seat at the bar but no table tops ever opened up.

“Worth the Wait”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 11, 2012

There is always a long wait for this restaurant because it is located at a popular mall (Fair Oaks) but it is worth the wait. The staff is good (not great) but certainly good. There are a lot of meal choices and most are very good. The desserts are excellent and the drink variety is yummy.

“great to meet friends and share a meal.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 11, 2012

Seating provides sections which seem somewhat intimate--even in a large restaurant. Huge food selection---and your favorites are always there. Try the salads--the Vietnamese lettuce wraps and the special teas. The desserts are sinful. Nice servers--decent prices--good location.
