    I would not waste my time or money.. almost 600$ bill for flavorless Chinese food! Also no ac in 90 degree weather. They was giving certain tables fans and I had to complain and they finally moved our seats upfront where the ac was working !! Will Never go again!

    The food and server were good. The people pushing you to take pictures and then harassing you to buy them for $25. each is the problem. I didn’t expect that at a restaurant while you’re eating. NOT GOOD., I FELT LIKE I WAS AT AN AMUSEMENT PARK.

    So me and my friend decided to try this restaurant for restaurant week due to it being new. They appear to have two different menus for lunch and dinner like every other restaurant prior to arriving to this restaurant me and my friend are the type of people who decide our meal before going to the restaurant so what made us decide the vegetable lo mein for our dinner Entrée was the fact that it stated it had steak chunks. When we got our entrée we noticed that there was no chunks in our lo mein. We brought this to our servers attention and they stated that it was an error on their end and that nobody picked up on it throughout these weeks. They did not honor what was written on the menu nor did they accommodate us we specifically went there with our mindset on something and we were disappointed it seem like we paid for their mistake
