Searching for something good to eat after regular hours we found a gem in a shopping mall. Small ,clean and friendly. We ordered appetizers and main dishes and all was very good. Good prices and a good meal adds up to a return visit soon.

The quality of this restaurant has gone way down hill. Sushi rolls were bland and didn't taste the freshest. Also was very over priced for the quality. Soups were the best part and they were nothing special. Fried rice seemed like a premade and frozen...More
