This restaurant has recently moved to the present location and is more wonderful than ever, if that's possible. Great service and the food was wonderful!

The lunch menu has a great variety of freshly prepared Euro-Asian food items. Service is conscientious and timely. Reasonably priced, unique and the setting is attractive.

Smerging of fusion styles. Sweet sticky entrees and the sushi is not made by a sushi chef. Lacks authenticity. Reminds me of PF Chang, which I do not like either because its food is sweet, sticky, not crisp and clean.
