There my not be a better fusion Asian restaurant in Costa Mesa/Santa Ana area. Potstickers being one of my favorite appetizers. However it is extremely loud so not the ideal first date restaurant. And the service has at times been so bad that my wife and I actually got up and left after no one acknowledged us after being sat... More

You know you've hit gold when you're trying to find fault with a restaurant and you just cannot! 1) SERVICE Impeccable. They seat you right away even if you're just a walk-in. As you enter the premises, everyone else acknowledges you with a small nod. There is practically no wait time between the time you sit and the time someone... More

Came here for lunch on a saturday afternoon. Beautiful place dominated with black, dark wood and a touch of red. We ordered half lobster with garlic noodles set, drunken beef and crispy beef rolls. The lobster and garlic noodles was excellent, drunken beef was good. Overall, a satisfying meal.

Albeit on the pricier side but delicious. Great service. Located in Bloomingdales but by no means is a mall restaurant. Sexy vibe. Tapas type Asian cuisine. Wonderful wines. Great to share and interesting combinations. Would return

This is an OC outpost of Crustacean where we have enjoyed meals previously. It was not nearly as good, pot stickers were cold, sashimi was fine but very thin slices, salmon toasts OK, sliders pedestrian, turmeric scented sole was not fresh. Garlic rice and the kim chi rice were both good. Ambience was nice, staff pleasant but with little knowledge... More

Went there on a Saturday night, had a 7:00 reservation. Sat at the bar while we waited for our table. Michael served us, he was very friendly and helpful. For dinner we decided to sample many of their small plates. Filet mignon dumplings and the AN's special garlic noodles were excellent. Food was great, 3 stars due to the spotty... More
