The food was excellent. The service was excellent. Our server, Edwin, made suggestions based on our previous visits and our current guest requests, and his choices were perfect. It was quiet enough for six of us to chat easily.

Always appreciate the warm welcome and hospitality. We stuck with our old favorites this time as we have been missing the Asian flavors of Jujube in our new home town. Susie has curated not only a unique and delightfully delicious menu but also a culture of genuine community that shows in the atmosphere and service. Caring and smiling staff seem to enjoy the experience as much as the patrons. Refreshing to see!
