We've been to both Locations and neither let us down. Food is good and they have a very wide assortment on the menu. The vibe in both restaurants is very casual and fun. Not the cheapest Asian food but worth a visit.

The restaurant was really cozy and nice. The menu had various interesting options all across Asian countries. We didn't have a table reservation, so the waiting time was around 45 minutes, but it was doable. The food was tasty and the service was Ok.More
