Food here was well-seasoned, and a good variety of options was available. The restaurant wasn’t very busy (heard this was lingering effects from the shutdown). Service was slow. I would go back.

We loved the location of the restaurant because it was right across the street from the hotel where we stayed, and the movie theater. Everything was within walking distance, which was nice. The sushi was amazing and delicious. We also ordered the pad thai, which...More
