The food was standard but the servis was lousy. The food took quite some time to arrive and they came one by one in a bad timing. The hot and iced green tea we ordered tastes fishy so we could not finish it.

The food took too long to come out, the table beside us (with more people) and they received their food much sooner than we did.

Downtown Los Angeles is a busy metropolis of towering
buildings, bustling streets, and industrial
warehouses. There is a distinct multiplicity of
cultures here with a growing influx of business
professionals and hipsters. Many call the evolution of
Downtown over recent years gentrification. New lofts,
bars, hotels and restaurants are popping up regularly.
Downtown is home to some of the very best restaurants
