Mostly well balanced food (nutrient, taste - not salty, not too sweet, not too oily).
Some foods are salty. Fried rice was dry (maybe cooked long)?

Food was just honestly just okay, staff was amazing though. Music was terrible.

Meh, I'd rather go to bamboo sushi or literally anywhere else for the price.

I made reservations and was called the night before to confirm and give my cc #. The Man on the phone assured me I would have a table for 8 upstairs. When we got there the table was for 2 upstairs then they moved us downstairs to the bar area where we were told we needed to be finished by 10 pm so they could open the dance floor. My reservations were at 830 pm.
I was upset and the manager was clueless about it all.

Really disappointed with the New Year's Eve service. We made our OpenTable reservation earlier in the week then was called the day before our reservation to get our credit card number because they don't want to bear ANY risk that WE don't arrive for the New Year's Service (at 8:15!!). When we arrived on time, they stuck us in the overflow upstairs area then told us that we only have a limited time because the DJ will be setting up in an hour or so on the table next to us. (How does that impact us?). The opentable reservation did not state there was a $70 prix fixe menu for NYE and we were surprised at the very limited selection within the prix fixe menu provided. (Vegan/salmon/steak). The (unalterable) tofu appetizer was ignored by 2 of the 4 of my party. (I thought it was delicious but some ppl won't try tofu and it shouldn't be the ONLY appetizer option in a PRIX FIXE!). The dishes were all beautifully adorned, but we couldn't see them in the badly lit overflow upstairs seating. The cocktails were lovely but I would not have gone with ice filled highball glasses in $12 exotic juice cocktails on new year's, it watered down the celebration in many ways, look, feel and taste. The red bean paste dessert was okay but a bit oily for my taste (3 oily donut-y things were 2 too many), and the dessert should have had a trio of tastes, not a single item x3. As a prix fixe, saucebox needs work. The waitstaff was nice but pushy, we were told twice that "the DJ is setting up now". We were NOT in his way and the reservation did not dictate we leave before we finished eating after paying our $400+ bill for 4 people (yes, they included the tip in the bill for us). If you are going to offer a "nice" dinner, don't dump us with the drinks-only crowd then crowd us out. TRASHY.

Had a horrible experience. I wish I could get my money back since it was a $400 meal. Made reservations NYE and it started out by the waiter telling us that we only have an hour and a half to eat until she had to tell us to go. Then as we were wrapping up and JUST finished dessert, she told us we needed to leave in 10 minutes, mind you, there were 7 open tables upstairs And plenty more downstairs. It was such a disappointment.

Not one of the cheaper options in Portland, but definitely worth the splurge on a special occasion. Sampled both the dinner and late-night menus- red lantern roll and pork belly shumai off dinner menu were delicious, and the pork noodles off late-night menu were to die for. Great cocktail selection. Our server was friendly, helpful, overall amazing. Great ambience for a fun date night! Will definitely be going back next time we find ourselves downtown with extra money to spend.
