Food was very good but service a little slow. Not a great selection for nice wines. Nice grilled vegetables. Basically, all the dishes were well received and were excellent.

Bland walls, snug and somewhat uncomfortably hot. Not a place to go to impress someone. But the food was very tasty. For starters, we had the salmon sliders (small fish burgers) - these were good. And the rolls - basic chinese like oily rolls. Jumbo...More
