What a great way to marry two cuisines of Italian and Asian: through pizza. This long standing restaurant sits in downtown Des Moines and has become part of the urban vibe culture.

The pizza and appetizers are really good . It's takes an oriental spin on the gourmet pizza craze. Crab Rangoon pizza is their specialty I would say. Not a fan of their "normal" pizzas like pepperoni. It can be a fun place to meet friends and hand out. I prefer the original downtown Des Moines location. It gets packed but... More

Good food and a great place to meet with friends. We had great service and our food was delivered quickly for the number of people we had there.

This is the best pizza here! It's a must have every time you go. Add a little hot sauce and it takes it up a notch! It warms up good too in the oven
