    I don’t like to leave reviews but this meal changed my brain chemistry. Potentially the best scallops I’ve ever had in my life. I try them everywhere and it‘s not easy to find someone who can master a simple scallop; Here, the flavor profile was perfectly complimentary to the meat. Satisfying, savory and not too salty— I nearly shed a tear, they were so good. Parsnip soup, quail and cavatelli were also outstanding. I could have licked the plate clean every time. Portions were perfect; just enough room for desert after one small and one main. Japanese cheesecake and custard for dessert. Coffee was great, both regular and decaf. Wonderful service. 5 stars, especially because the waiter recognized Trailer Park Boys.

    This was the best vibe I’ve had in a long time. Food , DJ, customer service all top tier. Only suggestion is to truly enforce 90 min wait limit

    The food here is amazing! I went for my 29th birthday with 4 guests. Overall we spent around 350 not including a tip. I can’t wait to go again. Our waitress was so nice and knowledgeable about the menu. Definitely would recommend if you are into family style dining and Asian cuisine

    The food was delicious. The service was excellent. It was noisy. It was a Saturday night and many tables were taken.
