Review №1


Been there on Monday night for my friends birthday dinner. The decor inside is so incredible, chic and cozy. I was really impressed and couldn’t get enough enjoying the vibes. Drink is really good and well decorated. I’m not very into their food, so we just ordered appetizer, drink and dessert.Service is also excellent, friendly and helpful.I put 4 stars because of the hostess, the lady is pretty rude to our group.

Pictures dont do this justice! The decor is so incredibly breathtaking that you have to see it in person. The vibe is also very chill and laid-back. I loved the music, although they do raise the volume at around 9pm, so its a bit hard to have a conversation. Food was excellent and portions were bigger than I expected. I had the mushroom BAO bun and a roll of sushi which were more than enough. For dessert I had to try the mandarin! Everything was delicious!After supper, a few of us had a cocktail in the lounge. Great vibe there as well! This is a lovely place for a night out!

Highly recommend! Food is very good, cocktails are great and the service was on point as well. The scallion noodles are a must, truffle tuna roll was very good and the fried rice with mushroom and truffle was great as well. The lamb chop was fall off the bone and I recommend trying that too. We will be back.

The service was 10/10. The ambience was 10/10. Wild mushrooms fried rice was delicious. Soft shell crab bun was excellent. A5 wagu crispy rice was average. Cocktails 10/10. So the reason for my 3 stars came down to the price. Food is over priced for average tasting food.

This is a stylish and fun restaurant for drinks and food either for a date or a girls night out. You are encouraged to order multiple dishes and share family style. The food was very expensive and subpar. The sushi was particularly disappointing - $50+ for spicy tuna with additional tuna and caviar on top. It sounded amazing, but honestly I couldn’t stomach more than 1 bite. The cocktails were delicious and legit but didn’t make up for the poor food. I would def come back for drinks!

My lady and I had our Anniversary dinner here last Friday. We were racking our brains trying to figure out a place and decided on here. We arrived a little late, but I called ahead and they were very accommodating. Upon entering, the ambiance and setting is beautiful. We were sat quickly and our waiter came just as fast. It took us a few minutes to settle in before we started ordering. For drinks, we had the Serenity and Million $ man. Both well crafted cocktails. For appetizers, we had the Korean Fried Chicken and Soft Shell Crab Bao Buns. Initially we thought it was going to be wings, but it was full fledged chicken. The chicken was almost too crispy, but it was very juicy. The sauces that came with it were tasty as well. The Bao buns were delicious. For the main course, we ordered the duck breast, halibut & white curry, and pineapple fried rice. It was my first time having duck and it was great. Gamey but tender, juicy and succulent. My lady had the Halibut & white curry. It was ok, just needed more flavor and seasoning. The white curry was different, so it took a little adjusting to. The pineapple fried rice was decent. Overall, it was a fine experience here. We were pretty satisfied celebrating here, and look forward to coming back down the line.

Beautiful spot. No expense spared on decor and ambiance.Food is lackluster. For the price food experience should be top notch. A birthday dinner for a friend left me underwhelmed and annoyed. I want ALL dishes to be PERFECT. Cocktails were great to me but the apps and mains were hit or miss. Snapper is a must. Presentation alone is wonderful….taste is on point. It was downhill from there for me. Skirt steak is very nope…as are crispy scallion noodles and wild mushroom fried rice….lamb shank may be good but it came out lukewarm and totally spoiled the experience….its a restaurant and NOBODY WANT WARM FOOD. My steak and noodles were warm as well…almost cold. The only hot dish was the crab noodles. Kale/napa salad was overwhelmed with dressings…definitely not a healthy salad…and not particularly tasty. I ordered my steak very well done and it was not. Beyond annoying. I don’t eat pink meat. There were two steak orders and although we asked waiter if mine was well done (to which he said both are) it was not. A day too late I found out a dinner mate in fact had my well done order…annoying when waiter assured me the plate in front of me was well done. I asked as did my friend as he knows how much I do not do pink meat. Its very dark so seeing your food clearly is another nope.If I pay a lot for a meal it should be perfection. Dinner here was not. Even the Korean fried chicken was very basic at 29.00 for 3 small pieces…..my steak was raw and just not good…packed it up and broiled it to my liking the next day…flavor still wasnt there….the mango dessert was tasty tho…so I would possibly return for snapper, kiwi cocktail and mango dessert which was hitting. And ambiance.Maybe.I told a host about the warm food and he said he would keep it in mind but didn’t even extend an apology. That was a huge turnoff. Have grace and apologize for shortcomings on such a basic expectation.I may return but I’m certainly not in a rush…especially when they have suck lackluster performance while charging 120.00 for the only dish I want. Zero desire to roll the dice. Let the food be as perfect as the ambiance.And if a client says well done dont put pink meat in front if them. I don’t care how most eat steak…I don’t like any raw meat. Full stop.Pics show the meat served to me….and how easy it was to simply broil it longer as I did at home…still was very meh…tasteless and gummy.

Celebrated my husbands birthday. Service was excellent the atmosphere was beautiful but the food could be a little tastier. The best thing we tried was the rolls

Review №9


This place is BEAUTIFUL! There was horrible mix up with our reservation, however, they were gracious enough to seat us anyway. That duck!!! OH LORD! So good!!! The desserts looked like art…flavor, meh. But that DUCK and mashed ube! I want to eat that dish weekly!

For the price of the food, I expect really good service but our waiter was very rude. He was friendly at first, after we place our order— he said with such a SNOTTY ATTITUDE “I can tell you what you order is not enough”. We asked to keep one menu by the table—maybe for add ons. He said there’s no add ons in between- once the order is put in—that’s what you’re getting. And he ignored us the rest of the night. We have to wave someone else to get the check. I don’t know what the hype is for an overpriced Chinese restaurant. I get better service in a Chinese take out.
