An evening dinner which started with a sample of Pinot Noir, not good so did not order, asked for a diet coke instead, it came and definitely was not diet coke, maybe it was Dr Pepper or RC or something similar. My husband ordered a Chardonnay which was not enjoyable at all and did not drink it. At this point I said "things aren't going so well", maybe we should go. We then ordered a Goyza appetizer...the wrappers were dried out and the filling was neither fresh or flavorful. The chicken lettuce wraps were ok and a large portion. We ordered a sampler with chicken satay and shrimp, it was a very small portion...the shrimp were small, overlooked and cold...the chicken satay was thin, dry and overcooked, not to mention the beef, ditto. The small side salad was good, crisp fresh lettuce. We ordered hibachi chicken which was in a very salty, soupy, odd tasting soy based sauce, so did not eat it. In summary, the waitress was great, the prices were reasonable, some portions were large, but this had to be the worst meal we have had in a long, long time. We are not terribly fussy people and have never written a review quitel like this, but it accurately reflects our experience and hope others would not encounter the same. Perhaps it was a one off, just a bad nite in the kitchen, but truly a waste of money and time!!

We had planned on stopping at a different restaurant while on a recent day trip, but it was closed. This was nearby and looked interesting. As it turned out, the staff was fantastic, the food was delicious - and prepared with super fresh ingredients plus great eye appeal. There were many different choices, not all the same old typical asian offerings. We did not try the sushi, just the dinner items. They had a lovely ginger salad dressing.

We will try to time our next road trip to be in the area at mealtime again!

Had a OK dinner here after a long working day. Good service, but restaurant is a bit boring. Buffet was closed so decided to take lettuce wrap with chicken. Unfortunately the mu shu was not available with duck, although there are several other dishes with duck on the menu. I took the mu shu bbq pork instead. The lettuce wraps were nice, tasteful juicy chicken with it (enormous portion). The mu shu was alright, bit dull and the pancakes were stuck together. Nice selection of Asian beers, not too bad for this area.

I expected much more based on the appearances and reviews - I was not impressed by the food. The ingredients did not seem fresh and there was way too much gravy slathered on the food. It seemed to weigh the food down, but I suppose that's the local taste preference. The decor was well done and service was just fine.

My husband & I LOVE Chinese food so decided to give this place a try. They had a lunch buffet going on which we thought would be great. The selection was minimal...there just wasn't enough variety for us. We will go back to the restaurant that we typically go to...same price with more options.
