Tha ambience was lovely, service was exceptional and everything we ordered tasted amazing. We order Lobster egg rolls, Sweet and Crispy jumbo shrimp, Kung Pao Monkfish, Vegetable fried rice and Tai San Cauliflower. As I said before, each dish was made to perfection and tasted amazing, the only meal that I wasn’t too tickled by was the Monkfish because it was breaded & deep fried and I’m not a fan of deep fried fish. I will defining be back to try more things on the menu. The drinks were also good and decently priced.

Obviously very few people were out due to COVID-19 so it was much quieter than it normally would have been. Food was yummy. General tso’s soup dumplings were a little salt and the vegetable fried rice could have used a little more salt but everything else was delicious. Drinks could have been a little stronger.

Belated birthday dinner after a disappointing one at a midtown restaurant. Not our first time at this restaurant and the food didn't disappoint. Dim sum for 2, Lamb chops, lobster fried rice and broccoli... All perfect!

Interesting beginning to the meal.
Server seemed overwhelmed and the restaurant was no where near capacity.
But the food was tasty and well executed.

Amazing space where you'd never expect it to be. The food is inventive and meant to be shared. The wait staff made excellent suggestions for food and drink, and were attentive and friendly without being intrusive or overly familiar. Our portions were right-sized. The dishes themselves came at a good pace, and we were never rushed. Try the lobster fried rice.

We waited 10 minutes before anyone came over to say hello to us or to take our order. At that point I knew everything we wanted. After our order was taken we only saw our server again when we were done eating. The food usually is pretty amazing, but this time the lobster rice was super dry and flavorless. Also, all food was lukewarm. Really horrible experience for the price paid.

Tuvimos que esperar 1 hora después de la hora de la reserva para tener la mesa.
Platos muy pequeños y caros.
Ruidoso y el único lugar lindo es el central. El resto es como estar en un closet.

A memorable evening! Great cuisine and phenomenal dining spaces. The manager visited our table to be sure all was well and Carolina, our server, was delightful. We'll be back!!

The red wine was literally 35-38° and they didn’t much care to hear that feedback or do anything about it.
