Went for my birthday and it was acknowledged . I noted it when I did the reservation & didnt even get a piece of cake while everyone around me did. Expected more & food took too long to be served.

Let’s start by me saying this is the second time I dined at this restaurant. I made the reservation online and noted that I was celebrating a birthday and would like to sit at a table in front. Last time I ate there I had a table in back it was real quite I was away from every one I couldn’t see the DJ. So this time I requested a table in front. When I got there they told me I to I could not sit in front. But tables was open. Instead they put me and my friends all the way in the back corner by the back exit. The door had a draft and it was cold. At that point I was over it. The girls who seated us was so rude. I wouldn’t return.

Such a great atmosphere, music was amazing! Service was really non existent, no one came by to see how we were doing or if we needed anything after the food was brought out. Way overpriced especially the drinks! But my daughter had a great time celebrating her special birthday with family and being ablebto dance was well worth it.

I liked the place itself, it was a nice environment. I went there for my Birthday, my food was good, but my friends food wasn't good at all. The hookah is affordable, but they don't give you the option to change the coil, when the flavor was still really good. They made us pay another $15 for a refile when the hookah only needed a coil. And we were not pleased with it.

I had heard good things about this place so I decided to try it out and made dinner reservations to celebrate my husband's birthday along with my kids. First off there is no available parking close to the place... and I drove about an hr from where I live...second, once in the location I was not greeted properly by the hostess. I let her know I had made reservations ahead of time and she did not bother to even ask for my name then she tried sitting me next to a table where hookah was being smoked and neither I or my husband where ok with that being that we had our kids and we are both non smokers. I asked the hostess to sit somewhere else and her response was that other tables where reserved for a larger party yet there was plenty of available tables and was thinking to myself why I even bothered for a reservation if I couldn't even pick where to sit??? The hostess still sat us on opposite sides of where the people where smoking the hookah.... the only thing I give credit to this place is the food... but terrible service with the hostesss they got there....

The place looks very nice. Nice that I have a choice to sit in or outside. Nice that I can go dance after dinner or watch a live performance. But the food was not fresh and over cooked. So disappointed. The only thing I recommend is the mama sushi. It was delicious. And the drinks aren't good but they are strong. Filled with different types of people. It's a place for a little of everything. Wished the food and drinks were better. Not in a rush to return but might check out a performance.

I liked the food but I cannot recommend this restaurant because it was just too much unnecessary noise. They could had lowered the volume of the speakers, but they choose not to. We couldn't talk and we could hardly communicate with our waiter, who was very nice, so we pointed at what we wanted. The place was not crowded for a Friday night. We asked to change tables because we were under a speaker - other tables were not much different. Why I wander they don't want to control the noise? I read other reviews and they talked about the noise but I didn't think it was THAT bad! Don't they want our business?
