We went with cousins for dinner while visiting family in Athens. Loved the menu, pan-Asian with modern American accents, and the fresh, soothing atmosphere. Also, have a nice wine list and prices for everything were very moderate. The only thing stopping me from giving it a 5-star is my chicken tikka was a bit dry. We would definitely return.

The food is really good but I think it's a little overpriced. The new owner now charges for the small salads that used to come with the entrees free. The general Tso is really good but it's hard to justify spending $13 on it with no salad. The lunch portion is cheaper but much smaller. Service is hit and miss.... More

It took a while to get our food (and there were only 2 other people here). The food was good, but it was kind of high priced. We probably won't come back but glad we tried it.

Locally sourced ingredients make this place stand out. Exceptional menu. Amazing flavor combinations. Staff was very knowledgable and enthused about the quality aspects of the meal preparation. I left feeling very satisfied and full. Great value for the quality and range of offerings.

This restaurant has good food, most with an Asian influence. Wine and beer is available too. My wife and I go there for lunch a couple of times a month. Often, the service is a little slow but the food is pretty good.

The Chicken Teriyaki lunch was excellent! My colleagues tried the General Tso's and Chicken Meatballs and everyone was very satisfied with their lunch! Will definitely be back!

Went here with colleagues and ordered out due to time constraints. Recommendation came from local. Could have been good if was able to eat in and while hot, but not their fault. Ordered chicken pad Thai which was flavorful but skinny noodles then what expected. Will try again when back in town.

Thank Dyan A
