Went there with my son. I have lived in Asia, so I will confess that I am an Asian food snob. The dishes we had were ok, but not great. The lunch special was a lot of food. I had a stir fry with a white sauce and brown rice, as I was trying to be healthy and could not... More

Came in for dinner, and from the get go service was questionable. After waiting over 15 mins for correction, we requested a manager. At that point surprisingly everything came out quick. however the over all experience was the worst I have seen in my 20+ visits to the location. Time to find a new place for Asian cusine. Miyos it... More

I must say that once I get my Correct Order the food is great! Too bad 9 out of 10 times my order is wrong and has to be corrected, especially when ordering to-go! I always stress a good 4-5 times that I don't want peanuts on my food, sometimes even saying I'm allergic hoping that they won't put it... More

Our waitress, Jing Jing, was so sweet! She had very good recommendations. However, the dinner size plates were huge! So, if you're going for dinner......my suggestion would be.......share with someone you love! 😍 Don't waste food......it isn't nice......and too many people go hungry in the world! 😔Better yet, instead of packing it in...pack it carry-out style......and give it to someone...

Really enjoyed this restaurant. Nice decor and a good combination of different Asian foods. This would get a 5 for all of the above but we were put behind the bar where there was a sheet of plywood that were not really hiding a bunch of boxes of alcohol. Just thought it was weird that the place had amazing woodwork... More

This was my first time eating here and the food was delicious. I ordered the vegetarian plate and it was wonderful. Great atmosphere and good service. I will visit again if ever back in the area.
