We went here for dinner on Sunday evening. The place is in competition with several other popular restaurants that are adjoining. The other restaurants were doing a brisk business with customers waiting outside to be seated. This place, however, was empty except for a few people. The servers were busy trying to look busy, but really had nothing to do. The decor is stark, with high dark ceilings and pendant lights over the tables. The dining tables are close to one another with no dividers and the acoustics are such that you can easily hear other conversations. The place just has a weird feeling to it. There is a sushi bar in the center of the restaurant and it had a couple of single guys watching the TV and drinking beer. Not surprisingly, we were seated right away. The menu has very interesting selections. The server, Chloe, was excellent. She was friendly and very efficient, which I like. We were given Miso soup free of charge to soften the long wait for the dish I ordered - mongolian beef. My wife has eaten here several times and tells me that the service is always good, but the chef seems to take too long to serve the food.
I have had mongolian beef before, and it is usually grilled and served in very thin pieces. This presentation was really different. The beef was like a small steak sliced into about 8 or 9 pieces about 3/8" thick. It was marinated and served over a dollop of garlic mashed potatoes. The beef was flavorful, but not quite as tender as I was expecting - it was good however. My wife had the pad thai - the portion was huge - she could not finish it. She added chicken to the dish, and there was so much chicken I swear it was a double serving. After finishing mine, I finished hers and let me tell you it was delicious. It was an interesting experience.
I definitely will go back here to try some other dishes, but I wish they would revamp the interior.
