Stopped in for lunch after a lot of running around. We were hungry and looking for something tasty. Every item was presented in a beautiful way and the combination of textures with the flavors could rival many high end places. The setting was clean and...More

I had the beef bulgogi. Nice flavour but too many onions for my liking. I also had a salmon maki roll which was really good. Nice and fresh. I will go back to try more of the menu.

Located in a non descript mall building, pleasant and fairly plain. Service was quick and the waitress was very helpful with suggestions. Music not too loud and everything looked clean. Good variety of choice, great flavors and not too expensive. Would be helpful to have...More
