"A really inexpensive, healthy, and tasty way to eat Asian-style food. I've only been once, but the food was that good that I'm basing my review solely on the food me and my girl had. Oh. So. Delicious."

"For my entree I ordered the chicken with truffle mac and cheese. The chicken had perfectly crisp skin and the mac and cheese was to die for. If you love truffles you have to try this."

"Loved the ambiance, the food and our server. 5 stars! We ordered the Atlantic salmon, spinach and artichoke dip, chicken orzo soup and their divine New York Cheesecake for dessert. Please get that! It's delicious. It's very moist and the crust is perfect."
