Reviewed July 12, 2012 via mobile

Everything tasted like vinegar. Will not go back. Very dissapointed with tast of all three dishes we ordered. The place was clean and open to outside which was nice but food was not good

“Great Food and Reasonable Prices”
Reviewed October 31, 2011

Went here for a dinner with business associates. Quality of food was good and prices were very reasonable. Would definitely go back next time I'm in the area.

“Spicy...Funny fusion and soggy weirdness”
Reviewed October 27, 2010

Prior to going to the theater, we opted for a quick Asian style dinner. Craziness in the restaurant, surly waitstaff...Pork tough, shrip tasteless and soggy. Chow fun wasn't.
All dishes seemed to be one color...like being dredged through the sauce until completely coated to mask any thing that may not belong.
I will pass on coming back.
BTW...some of the BEST flatulence ever after the matinee at the show!

“Noisy and Crowded but Tasty”
Reviewed August 30, 2010

A fun and busy place to eat when you don't want to have an important conversation. The noise level is very high, but the food is good and the portions plentiful, and it arrives at the table very quickly. The service isn't overly friendly, but it's efficient and adequate. Lots of vegetarian selections for a mixed group.
