This neighbour of the airport is an ‘Asian fusion’ place serving something that is supposed to resemble Chinese/Japanese/Thai/Vietnamese cuisine. It succeeds brilliantly in doing all with equal mediocrity. Chicken-fried rice was heavy, overly sweet & salty, & glutinous. The crispy beef Szechuan was deep-fried something-impossible...More

Modern pan-Asian decor with comfortable booths. The staff is very pleasant staff but the food was disappointing.

I absolutely love this place. The all-you-can-eat sushi is the best in Ottawa! The other items on the menu are excellent as well. They have a very nice outdoor patio.

The venue was nice. Staff were good but i find the price of sushi too expensive. I dont mind paying for higher quality but this was just like other sushi all you can eat. I have been here twice so far and its very inconsistent.

Very tasty and reasonably priced lunch. Nice decor and attentive service. The lunchtime special of beef with Thai sauce was excellent. Would definitely go back.
