This is a good spot to have dinner before a performance at CPCC or a downtown venue. A lot of variety and consistently tasty food.

I found this place through a restaurant app on my phone. We came to Charlotte for New Year's Eve and wanted some sushi as we were coming into town. This place has its own parking lot and is easy to access. The prices are reasonable and the servers were very friendly. The menu is amazing. They have curry, sushi, other... More

Sushi and service were mediocre. Probably will not go there again unless there is a drastic change in the food or service.

Let's start with the positives: The food was flavorful and portions were a decent size. To be honest, I have a hard time rating restaurants with an unfriendly and uninviting staff any higher than a 3. Based on the ambiance and service alone, I would not go back. The food was good, but not so good that the attitude problem... More

Heard about this place from a couple of sources and looked forward to authentic, tasty Malaysian in Charlotte...but it failed to live up to its hype. The food is average, the service is average, the atmosphere is average. Not horrible, but certainly not worth returning to.

Visited here on a business luncheon and was sorely disappointed. The atmosphere was very unappealing with everything appearing a little worn and poorly maintained. The service was average at best and the food was inedible.

My daughter wanted to go here so me and my 2 daughters went. She was going to just get 2 meals and said it would be enough. Me and my other daughter were skeptical so we got a third dish. @ would have been enough. They give a lot of food. It looks nice and it tastes really good. The... More

Curries , noodles, Chinese, rice bowls they have it all. Wonderful selection or various styles of food to choose from. Get out of your comfort zone with boring mall style Chinese and come here VERY GOOD

They have many choices to choose from. I had the sushi and my husband had a rice dish. The food and service was very good. As far as the atmosphere - very lacking. There is nothing on the tables and not very cozy feeling. This is not important to some people but I think it is nice. It is easy... More

Three of us enjoyed complex spicing and very good food here. Portions were very generous. Service was friendly and efficient. They will make your dish as spicy as you want it. The location near CPCC is great, perfect place to grab a bite before seeing a show at Halton Theater.
