    Great location on a canal and finger licking delicious food. They welcome dogs outside and the ambience was amazing. If we lived closer to Ft. Lauderdale (we're in Miami) we'd be regulars. Either way, I know we'll be back. Highly recommend!!!

    The service was extremely poor. We said we did not want anything fried, but when we ordered the sesame chicken, it was deep fried and like shoe leather. I had to ask 3 times for salt and most of the evening the waiter was no where to be seen. Too bad since this place has great ambiance, but nothing much else to be desired.

    My overall review is good and if you love asian tapas you should definitely check this place out! Food was really good but our particular waiter must have been new or inexperienced. He forgot a lot of our order and several other things we asked for (water, wet naps, drink). The atmosphere is really cool and they have nice seating outside by the canal. Prices are reasonable and we would definitely go back(as long as we didn't have the same waiter). Although we went there for tapas, I was a little disappointed that their menu online included some main dishes that sounded really good but when arrived the menu only had tapas. So if you're not in to tapas, I would pass. Overall, good food, prices are reasonable and I would recommend!

    The food was excellent and the variety was outstanding. The wait staff was experienced and pleasant. However, don't eat inside the restaurant as it looks like aregular small bar with a few booths. But the outside area is beautiful and is along a canal with lots of greenery on the dock .
