This was one of my families favorite restaurants. My sister went with her family a month ago and found a piece of wrapper in her dish and the manager was roud when she reported the issue. She said she would never go back and told us not to. Since it was our favorite we went again but we should have... More

First, this restaurant is, IMHO, without question, the most beautiful Chinese restaurant in the city. My wife and I stopped in for lunch, and were seated for some reason in the bar area, rather than the restaurant area, which is much prettier. We both ordered the Sesame Chicken lunch, she with the Hot & Sour soup and brown rice, I... More

This is one of my favorite places to eat Sushi and Asian cuisine. The house wonton soup and the fresh sushi rolls are always fresh and delicious. The staff is always friendly and attentive when dining in the restaurant. I highly recommend this restaurant while in Houston.

There is not a dish ordered by anyone at our table either visit that would not be ordered and savored again. We had enough food to be able to take home and enjoy another time. The staff was helpful as some had food issues to deal with.

I ordered take-out from this restaurant while staying at a nearby hotel. The food was tasty--I ordered orange shrimp and egg drop soup. The egg drop soup had an interesting ingredient though---roasted corn kernels. Is this Texas's take on egg drop soup? I didn't mind it really but I think I would have preferred the traditional style.

We just used the take-out service and it was fast, efficient and very reasonable. Very nice staff. The dining room is very nice but it was a bit noisy. I would like to try for dinner next time.

Great Chinese food at good price points. Very helpful and attentive service. Piano bar on weekend evenings. An under-rated and little frequented Sushi Bar. Very good though. Prepared skillfully to order.

After eating the sesame chicken here, I'll never order it anywhere else. Tender white meat with a spicy sauce and generous portions. The restaurant is beautifully decorated and reasonably priced. A repeater.

Remarkable an Asian place that serves great sushi, good Thai, and awesome Chinese, it's often one or the other, not all. We went a s a group six, had really nice service, attentive, and not rushed, my grilled beef with shredded ginger was excellent, three others had sushi, which was awesome, the Thai curry was great. Definitely a place to... More
