                                                  The food was delicious, I didn’t expect it to be that great, plus the service was excellent. I will definitely return.

                                                  The ambiance was fine, the manager was great, the food is a bit pricey for what it is, I highly disliked that they told me they weren’t taking sit down customers because it was a Friday night. I made a reservation and then when my date and I walked in, half the place was empty. There were a bunch of open tables and they were still open when we were finished eating and left. We left early because for some reason they decided to turn on the AC and it got freezing cold. No one feels like eating with a leather jacket on.

                                                  It was Mother’s Day and I decided to treat my mom, aunt and grandma to dinner. Overall the atmosphere, and music was on point. The drinks and appetizers was amazing, however the entrees wasn’t really the best. I would definitely make this a spot to come to on a Friday evening for drinks and music and appetizers. Also they have television by the bar so sports can definitely be watched.

                                                  It was mother day so the kitchen was backed up. But the waitress made sure my daughter (a toddler) got her food despite the wait. She was attentive. The owner then played hide and seek with my daughter- super cute. Overall a very nice experience.

                                                  My friend and U had a great time. It was her first time and she raved about the red velvet waffle. She thought the Thai curry chicken wings could of been more spicy or, add a sauce to the side for more spice. I had shrimp and grits for the second time, which was great. I must rave about the salmon cakes. However, my one dissatisfaction was that I came from church and needed some tea and there was one choice to choose from!

                                                  The food was really really bad. Nasty, no flavor, ended up going to another restaurant because I ate NOTHING

                                                  Food was really good but the service could have been better. Our drinks came later than our food. And the waiter either was overwhelmed or did not care for her job because everything seemed rush. And when we brought things to her attention she gave off a “well that’s not my fault attitude”. No apologizes for the late drinks and she wasn’t around when we wanted more drinks. Although we came to eat we also know how good Czen drinks are and we wanted to get lit we weren’t able to because of how long the waiter took to get back to us and although we were there since 9:30 it was not closing time of 11:30. I’ll still come back tho.

                                                  Waited over 30mins for server to return to take our order for Entrees after getting appetizers and drinks. Once we brought it to her attention she chuckled snd asked if we wanted to place our order...we asked for the check and left.

                                                  We took our daughters here for their birthday. The food was good, our waiter Carl was very attentive and always available. It’s a relaxed and fun environment.

                                                  I was very disappointed in the service. It seems as if the waitress was juggling too many tables and the waiter was taking orders at the table next to us with his half eaten meal in a plate, in his hands. It was very unprofessional. The wait was also very long, it seemed as if the waitress forgot we were there most of the time. The food was very good tho so I wish the service matched.

                                                  We were seated upon arrival. The wait staff was very pleasant. The drinks was great and the food very delicious. I especially enjoyed the Tempura Fish Cakes. There were the best I’ve had from a restaurant.

                                                  Service was very very very slow. Apps and entrees basically came out at the same time and the food wasn’t worth the wait. Just paid my tab and left . Very pretty inside and the music was very good. However I came there to eat so it was a very poor experience for me

                                                  the customer service was horrible. it was my birthday and my table tried to suprise me they never came .. the drinks took an hour to come and was watered down (another waiter had to assist). the only good thing was the food. the food is phenomenal!

                                                  We had a great time from the moment we entered. The decor was beautiful, Asian inspired and cozy. The music selection was perfect! The food, berry jerk wings, ackee and saltfish was great! The dumplings were a little too sweet, tasted like funnel cake. The rum and raisins waffles was amazing! and the rum punch was boozy and nice! I do wish the staffs attire was a little bit casual chic, maybe a button down and black denim. They wore hoodies, sweats, leggings and sneakers while customers put pride into their outfits wearing casual chic booties, nice blouse with denim, etc. but overall my experience was great

                                                  I had to share my waitress with multiple other tables which prevented me from having adequate service. The food, while tasteful, was less satisfying due to the long wait to receive it, the long wait to receive silverware, the drink refills that never happened. Would I come back?? Maybe on a quiet afternoon in the middle of the week.

                                                  I had to make a last-minute addition to my table to add another person. The food was good, and the environment was great, but the service was abysmal. After I got home, OpenTable sent me an alert that I didn't attend the reservation. I sent over proof since I have charges on my card for the restaurant. OpenTable said they would verify after they got back to me and said everything was cleared. A week later, I saw a $75 charge on the card I used to make the reservation. Now I'm trying to get in touch with the restaurant to figure out why I was still charged $75 after making my reservation. First and last time I will ever go to this spot. The scamming is real. If I wasn't always diligent about monitoring my cards, they would have stiffed me for $75 after I had already spent a decent amount and tipped generously despite the lousy service. They didn't even acknowledge that it was my Dad’s Birthday, even though I put it in the notes. Just horrible service and then having to deal with their incompetence now with the additional fake charge of me being a so-called no show. Two weeks later🤬.

                                                  Very busy, I won’t comment on the waitresses even though they kept passing my table and didn’t even offer my child a drink after waiting almost 30 mins. Making eye contact with me the entire time since I walked through the door but no one wanted to take our order? I thought that was pretty horrible…. Food was bomb af though, and my daughter loved the oxtail dumplings. Host was amazing and made sure we were taken cared of.

                                                  This restaurant is so cute and modern the food was very flavorful. I liked the Asian touches to the food, I came here for my dads birthday and everything was reasonably priced. The drinks were also very good. I am definitely coming back to try their happy hour !
