Don't come here with any expectations other than a great meal. The menu is always so varied and inviting, I try whatever looks great, and it always is. Steak tartare ala BT, spring rolls that crunch, melt-in-your mouth short ribs, or a bento box. Fabulous.

The place is beautiful inside and out. Food is so unusual and so wonderful. You must have the fresh rolls and the asparagus soup made with NO CREAM.

Our food from appetizer through dessert was the freshest, tastiest, most beautifully presented meal in recent memory. The black rice was amazing. We were so impressed. This will be our new “special event to celebrate” place.

Consistently great Asian Fusion fare served with panache and flair. Garden dining is available in addition to the low-lit, intimate dining room inside. Only downside is the lack of parking - finding a space can be tough.
