  • Tapas are great, Need main dishes
    OpenTable Diner Since 2013
    Dined on 9/13/2014
    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 .
