“A funky fun yet quirky place”
Reviewed January 25, 2013

Great place for a fun time with an ecclectic menu. Prices are fair as is the food but something about this place puts you in a pleasant mood. Staff is friendly and helpful.
Worth a try.

“I just love this place”
Reviewed November 15, 2012

Creative dishes, inviting staff, good wines, great atmosphere. I have been there many times in the past couple of years and never was disappointed. You can go alone and sit at the bar or go with friends/partner and get a nice table.

“Good Sushi”
Reviewed October 21, 2012

Although you can't tell by the name, this place has great sushi. Had sushi as an appetizer and scallops as the main. Al in all great food and good value.
It's called a wine bar but I found the wine list lacking.

“Funny name, but worth a try”
Reviewed October 18, 2012

Not sure how they got the name, but I really expected a bar experience. Was very surprised to see that this was a pretty up class nice restaurant. The combination of Sushi and regular food for appetizers or meals was nice actually. Had a great wine selection. The service was excellent and food was good. Good place for larger groups, not a problem with noise. I would suggest it if you are looking for a nice meal, but don't want it too private. Probably not a date night....

“Nothing special”
Reviewed October 11, 2012

My wife and I visited here " we had driven by it dozens of times and did not know exactly where it was. It has a good local reputation, though, so we decided to go on a recent Friday evening. The place was not crowded at 7:00 on a Friday evening, which tells you something. Frankly, we found the food a bit on the greasy side (for our tastes, anyway) and disappointing. They went overboard with butter and seemed to drench the dishes with it. Portions were on the small side, but heavy. Service was good and the waitress was quite pleasant and patient. There was no real ambience. The place seemed like a converted drugstore or something. Tables were tight. I can't really recommend it. I think there are better choices, even in "Little Saigon". Try Lac Viet or Pho 88, for example. Both are nearby, have good food, and the meal will cost half (or less) as much.
