“Serenity”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 28, 2014

What a wonderful garden to walk through and just take in the peace and quiet, not to mention the breathtaking water view. Something to see if in the downtown Norfolk area and is close to Nauticus.

“Peaceful Garden Downtown”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 15, 2014

Stroll around the Pagoda and enjoy the peaceful garden and ponds. We ate lunch in the upper level of the Pagoda. Great view. Appetizers (small plate) for lunch. One was quite small in portions. Both were good. Service was a little slow so be careful in going during a limited lunch break.

“Good food at an excellent location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 14, 2014

Consistently good food, friendly and prompt service; coupled with the best Asian garden. A great idea: sip tea and enjoy the koi. A great indoor/outdoor dining experience. Extremely pet friendly.

“A Good Place for an Event”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 11, 2014

This is a super place to have a small event (10-50 people). There is not much capacity here but they will let you bring in a catering company after paying a small lease charge. The view is super. It is at the bottom of a small marina that looks out into the Elizabeth River.
