“Hit and Miss”
Reviewed June 21, 2014 via mobile

Me and mom stopped in for a late supper on June 21st, 2014. There's was nothing wrong with the food of service speed as we were in an out of there within 45 minuites. The one thing that we had a problem with that the waitress was passive and wasn't to friendly. I guess she wasn't having a very good day either.

“disapionting visit”
Reviewed July 3, 2013

first visit it was the lacking service - the waitress's were telling people that the heat was not working until 7 people asked for them to please turn the heat up. then it suddenly worked and the waitress was rude and inattentive after that.

2nd visit - found out the halibut comes frozen and is so thickly coated in a breading you can't eat it.

3rd visit - the noodle soup tasted like water and vegtables, had no sesame oil, no soy, no flavor and was really yucky yet for soup and water my bill was 23$

4rth visit - dragon boat wraps.......it must have been sitting under a heat lamp for hours...so yucky

The food was not fresh cooked and some of it came from frozen...but that was not how they portray this "higher end " restaurant bar

“Something for the whole family including vegetarians”
Reviewed April 21, 2013

Went there for a quick supper, with my vegetarian daughter, had excellent burgers, including a vegetarian burger. Most meat dishes can be substituted. Fries were super excellent. Prices a little high basic burger $12.00, vegetarian $14.00. Alas it is a bar so no minors allowed.
One of the few places in Strathmore that cater to vegetarians. Excellent service

“Food Excellent but service generally not so good”
Reviewed December 30, 2012

I have eaten here numerous times and I have always enjoyed my meal. The service however is really hit and miss. Slow or rude seems to be the order of the day. I go back for the fish tacos which are amazing!
