Buffet option at lunch makes for a fast lunch if needed. Ordering off of the menu is also available. Dishes were fresh and flavorful. Try the Korean pork stir fry- sign says "spicy".. but no need to be afraid. It was delicious.

Out of the family that owns the resturaunt, the mother is from Asia so the food is semi-authentic if not mostly so. Its enjoyable always and the beer selection is half from Asian brewers! I always enjoy eating here.

Decent prices, nice staff, sumptuous portions. But greasy, so very greasy. And the Korean kimchi wasn't Korean kimchi, neither had the Vietnamese lemongrass chicken much to do with Vietnamese lemongrass chicken: onions, almost a full plate of onions??? Stomach ached for a full day after.

The restaurant is nice and clean. Food is hot and fresh. Vegetables are very fresh. Everything had great flavor. The menu has a wonderful variety. The service was great. Be prepared to have leftovers, portions are huge!
