One of the best in Harrisburg with perfect Asian fusion cuisine, a lively environment, and excellent service. I haven’t had a bad meal here. The tuna was perfect and the drinks were well made.

We were in the lounge so we could talk. We could hear the musician in the tap room but it was OK. The acoustics in the lounge are not great. There was only one other table with people and they were loud. Sometimes it was hard to hear our conversations.

Another amazing experience here! The wait staff is so incredibly friendly and helpful to each other. We had another waiter asking if we wanted our water refilled and helping clear off our table while our waitress got our chocolate fondue ready. The food always tastes so fresh and good. The dipping sauces are also so much fun to try and we appreciate they give you a sample of each one. We found a few that we normally would not pick. We look forward to our next visit!
