Summer rolls were fantastic, and the faux buffalo wild wings were fun as well. Be warned: they are regulation heat and don't come with Roquefort to cool down with! I chased mine with a very nice green tea float. Service is fast, friendly, and efficient...

We ate there on a Saturday at 2 pm. Moderately crowded, but not noisy. Service was excellent. Food was delicious. We've also eaten at the sister restaurant, Hangawi, which is also very good.
