“Too much garlic”
Reviewed March 25, 2014

I like garlic, but this pan-asian restaurant went overboard in the amount they used. i liked the flavors of the food although some was a bit spicy.

“Great Asian Fusion”
Reviewed January 10, 2014

By all means try this newer restaurant. It was recommended by friends who live nearby and we are so glad we ate there. Kind of Asian Fusion Tapas, in that most dishes come in bowls that can be shared onto individuals plates. Great Broccoli dish, happy chicken, garlic noodles wonderful!
Some dishes quite spicy but they will tone them down for you.
Really good service, not intrusive into your conversations while still being attentive to your needs. We all thought this one of the better dining experiences we had in Berkeley, along with Tratorria La Siciliana!
