Nothing special, very ordinary food. We order lots of appetisers and all came at the same time with main dishes, not the way to serve food.

Food tasted great (Ordered a combination of appetizer, sushi, and entrée).
Cocktails were ok (bar had to remake a few bad ones but staff were very nice about it).
Food/Drink wait time was long (hour+ for sushi orders, 30+ for cocktails and non-tap beer orders).
Party size was 10 for a Saturday evening reservation.

Small place tucked away near Dupont Circle. 'Pan-Asian' menu - with choices from Thai, Vietnamese, Chinese, Japanese and Malaysian cuisines. This suited our family very well when we went to celebrate a young adult birthday.

6:30 pm reservation - no one else was dining on a Friday night. Other groups did come later.
Full sushi bar available. Fun cocktails.

Service was fine. Casual. Prices were modest.

Recommend: crispy peel beef, Singapore noodles (yum!) and the crab rangoon (large chunks of crab).

Two of us went for lunch. It was very quiet which was nice. The dumplings were excellent; not doughy at all, which is the problem of most of the ones I've tried in DC. The filling was good but they were pan fried and a little greasy. There were five in an order which made it difficult for two people to share. The eggplant in garlic sauce was delicious. I wouldn't change a thing. The lunch special noodles with chicken in curry peanut sauce was tasty though there was very little chicken. It contained two kinds of noodles -- lo mein and very thin (maybe rice?) noodles, which was a surprise bu it tasted good. The total check for two of us without tip was $29 which was very reasonable.
