While, I will certainly recommend the restaurant to family and friends, I must admit that I was disappointed at our chef. I believe he might have gotten upset when (i) two of the people sitting at our table did not want any sauces and (ii) then my group only wanted the ginger sauce. He had a bit of an attitude and was not friendly. My family and I were celebrating VDay.

We arrived ten minutes early all of our guests were there by our reservation time. However, we weren’t seated until twenty minutes after our reservation, it took the server another 10-15 minutes to come and collect our drink order. Another 15 to bring it, most things we had to ask for twice. At the end our ice cream came out but most don’t not get what they asked for. Lastly we asked for a box to go never came. However they were fast to deliver and pick up the check. Food was good

The drink was nothing but juice. My soup was cold and the food portions was very small . I wouldn’t recommend this to my dog . Hamada’s is better

Service was great I just had no idea all the msg used in the food so I suffered the next day as I get migraines when I have msg. I really think the food would be tasty without it.

All of us in my family left hungry. I have been coming there for a long time. The food portion has gone down tremendously. The vegetables used to fill at least half my plate. We only got a small portion. I was very disappointed. I feel for what I paid I could of gone somewhere else and gotten a lot more food for my money.

Sadly very disappointed with the service and even more disappointed with Simon the managers lame response to my complaint. "We are busy" is not acceptable. For the price, the service should be better. There are much better food options for the price

Valentine’s Day, limited menu unless you read fine print to ask for full menu. Server hopefully was new, was very unsure of anything, and then charged others at the tables booze to my bill. Took three times to get check correct. Bummer. As good was awesome! Had a little bit of everything, which is how I like it! Full of choices and cook was friendly. Note. Walking into a restaurant with a hostess with a surgical mask over her face makes me not want to talk to her yet be in the vicinity. If your sick, stay home! Don’t risk spreading it, mostly if you feel bad enough to sport a surgical mask!

Limited menu. With higher prices. Food had ZERO flavor. We felt like they were rushing to eat you in and eat and leave. Will never go there again.

Overall, my experience was great! Food was awesome and my friends enjoyed themselves. The only downfall/complaint is that I made reservations for 6:30 and we were not seated until 7:30. Everyone got sat except our party of 3.
