To be honest we really wanted to like this place a lot. The service was great and the atmosphere was very nice and warm. Ultimately it came down to the food. The appetizers were delicious. In fact they were better than the main courses. We both had the Dan Dan noodles and we’re kind of disappointing. It said pork belly and we were expecting crispy pork belly but instead we got something similar to Chopt pork that was kind of mushy.

Great dinner- chicken wings, pork belly, and dumplings were so good. Ate until we were stuffed and plan to go back to try the things we couldn't fit in our stomachs. Fried rice was the best I have ever had anywhere. Sake flight was a real treat and went great with the food. Server was prompt and courteous and the support staff was on their A-game. They all worked well together as a team. Did not feel crowded even though the restaurant was busy. Can't wait to go back!

Sad to say the food used to be a little bit better! But overall a good meal. Pork belly is amazing but not impressed by dumplings or mac and cheese. The waiter took the Mac and cheese of our bill with out us even asking which I really appreciated.

Food and service was great, felt uncomfortable near the end because they seated people at tables right next to each other and right next to my table, which they said they wouldn't do. We were finished eating so we left and went outside.

The hostess was in a crabby mood just as we got there. We had a reservation on s Tuesday evening. the restaurant was almost empty but she wouldn’t give us a table that was more out of the way. Obviously, that table stayed empty during our dinner… the food was hit and miss. The dumplings and Dan Dan noodles were yummy, the mussels were terrible.

Their appetizers and dumplings are better than their entrees. Service was overwhelmed and not fantastic. Food is not as flavorful or spicy as we expected from an Asian restaurant, would have liked the option to intensify.

Overall fine place for appetizers or small plates. Beautiful inside. Ok cocktails

Nice ambiance and decor. Service was prompt and helpful and energetic. Food was great. Brussel sprouts and popcorn mushrooms were better than they had any right to be. The dumplings were good. Thai basil noodles with impossible meat were very flavorful. Cocktails were interesting. Overall had a great experience. Would totally go back. And would recommend.
