Offered fresh cherry lemonade drink and it was very pleasing. The menu offers small plates, plus lunch entrees, with specials each day. The Ahi Tuna was excellent, as was the Massor Dall

You have to try the chicken curry salad. Delicious. And those trees in the Garden Court? Real. Even though it is all indoors. The kitchen is two stories down - to accommodate the roots.
