Offers a great variety of food! I had the wonton soup which was delicious. The Chinese Chicken Salad looked excellent and the lunch specials were all appealing. Overall a very good experience.

Following an afternoon of shopping, we stopped by for a sampler of appetizers. We had the scallion flatbread, chive dumplings, fried tofu and rainbow poke - delicious! Presentation/service was awesome!

Food was ok but overpriced. Service was not good. Constantly had to stay on wait staff for water, order, drinks etc. There are much much better options, even California pizza next door.

I went there with 3 friends for an early lunch. It was not too busy at 11. Reservation definitely recommended if later. The food was good and the portions were perfect for lunch. The most outstanding dish was the garlic noodle.
