I'm not sure why this place has a Michelin star. The food is good and everything we ordered was well prepared. However, most of their feature dishes are borrowed from chefs at other restaurants. For instance David Chang's spicy pork sausage and rice cakes from...More

I have been to Michelin Star restaurants around the world, and I usually tend to be underwhelmed by the experiences. It is the same here unfortunately. The reason I say this is that the food comes second to the "artsiness" of the food. It is...More
