Very enjoyable lunch spot. The ice tea was the best I've ever had. Excellent hot and sour soup and wonderful fresh wide noodles. Very good service.

“What a nice surprise?!”
Reviewed September 29, 2012

We were looking for something new, something different, but at the same time hoping for fun and delish. This place delivered on all fronts. Restaurant was packed tonight, so we opted to eat dinner at the bar. Great fun. We got a bottle of white, potstickers and started perusing the menu. Got way too much and now have seem to be set for the weekend's dining, everything was absolutely delicious. Service was attentive, but not annoying. Perfection. We WILL be back very soon. Great find.

“Can't stop eating!!”
Reviewed September 1, 2012 via mobile

Ordered numerous things because we couldn't decide, thinking we'd have plenty to take home, but we simply couldn't stop eating--it was soooooo good.

“Yuck”
Reviewed August 2, 2012

Don't bother. Expensive. The leechee martinis are disgusting. The garlic noodles had never met garlic. The salad was so overdressed we sent it back. Yuck.
