the food is good and inviting decor. only negative would be the noise level, its consistently hard to hear conversation due to music, closeness of tables and crowd noise. overall we do like the good here

Had a number of dishes and everyone of them was fantastic, especially the Scallops, Pork hock, and Lemongrass custard. Will definitely be back for more!

Greatly disappointed and definitely one of those not worth the hype restaurants in my opinion. The first issue was when we were seated. We were seated right beside another group of people dining but not at a different table - we were seated at the same table as a group of people we didn't know. This wasn't mentioned when I... More
