Went here on a Saturday night after reading a review online about the karaoke night. needless to say, switching to a different venue ruined my one night of "fun" i get a week. We were one of the first tables seated... at 8:30pm, they started...singing at 9pm, and by 11pm they still had not progressed to the second rotation. as people came in, they were added. In all the places I have been to, this was the worst. I feel bad for the poor girl waiting to sing as at least 1 hour of songs had been added in front of her name at the end of the rotation. We gave up and left. On top of that, the service was terrible. an entire room full of tables and no waitresses. The bartenders were extremely rude. Wont be back, ever.More

The first server we had was excellent but got switched midway through the evening. The food was excellent from the sampler platter to Chinese food. Everyone in our party was happy with the dinner. One of those little old hidden gems.

The bartender Brianne is very involved with clients I saw her going to the close hotel with a married client, he is a regular so maybe he was giving an extra tip to her.

I moved into the area about six months ago and this has become my local bar. I first arrived with a bunch of friends. i would say the place was barely a third full. It took over 15 minutes before being noticed and being wing...night the lady simply came by and said what wings do you like? on of our guests asks for menu and when she returned with menu and drinks we had to do airplane signals to get her attention. We made note that i am a regular and hopefully she recognize me on my return as the 'regulars' seem to be getting refilled drinks without event asking. Fast forward siz months, I have now been to this place at least 12 times and i essentially have to go alone. none of my friends are interested in coming back to this place to have to wait to be served or get a drink. we witnessed one patron who asked to see a menu who was pointed to a wall and told to grab one from the wall. I really feel like i should feel privileged coming into this place as i never get good service and it seems like the same lady working is having a bad day EVERYDAY. Good old saying... "Being nice doesn't cost but it sure as hell pays." A little improvement on customer service and a few internal upgrades would really make this place amazing... its close to so many homes and right beside the hotel its embarrassing the service i have received. the food is great and the price is on point... just service is worse than self serve.More

I have tried the spring roll that being mentioned from previous review, they are delicious, also the dumplings were very good. We had chicken fingers and two big glass beer. For only 36 dollars, that is really decent price. Going back again for sure!
