“Sugary Asian food”
Reviewed August 21, 2013

The "fusion" must refer to the fusion of Asian food with the proclivity to creating inauthentic sugary offerings in some Asian-American restaurants. The restaurant is in the attractive little lakefront town of Frankfort, MI, and if you don't mind sweet & spicy, you will probably really enjoy your meal here. It's not as if there is a lot of competition. Apart from that issue, which afflicts most of their food, from the Tom Yum soup through the stir-fries to some of the Bento specialties, food is laid out attractively and is prepared with care. You can always ask to have things made with less sugar, though it may be too sweet anyway, or be oddly unbalanced. The egg-drop soup, the sushi, and the pot-stickers are good & not sweetened. The outdoor patio faces the nearby harbor and is pleasant. wait-staff is nice, and even on crowded days the serving time is reasonable.

“variety of Asian food”
Reviewed August 16, 2013

The sushi is a big draw here. It's delicious as well as all the other foods I've eaten here. Friendly staff. Definitely worth a visit if you like any kind of Asian food.

“nice atmosphere and average taste”
Reviewed August 4, 2013

My husband and I with our 3 children love Chinese food. Since this is Asian food restaurant, we decided to give it a try. The stir fry dishes were beautifully presented, But the taste is really average. The brown sauce they used were so dark that it covered all the pretty colors of vegetable. My son ordered Almond chicken, his comments was " this is a combination of KFC chicken and Chinese food.", he liked it very much.

“Ho hum at best”
Reviewed July 29, 2013

Very bland food.. Have been here at least once a year and forget until the food comes why I don't go there more often. Nothing unique or interesting about their food. Nice views of the bay from the deck.
