We had a great meal here. We it is a sharing menu for the most part so we ordered throughout our meal sharing each plate. It was easy to talk to each other at first but was the restaurant fills it get quite loud. I like what they have done to the interior and would come back.

First time at this restaurant, recommended to me by a friend. Beautiful place, food was very good, our waitress was prompt, efficient and kind. Overall was a great dinner, except for 1.5 hours into several rounds of food and drinks between 4 people, we were asked by your HOSTESS to settle our bills as there was another reso for our table. We booked our table via OpenTable for 7pm, we were never advised that we would have a 1.5hour window to eat, drink and visit with our friends. The hostess was rude, attitudy and incredibly unprofessional. As someone who spent their 20’s as a server, I was appalled at how she handled the situation. She stormed off when I asked if we could finish our ‘just ordered’ drinks. Our kind waitress returned and couldn’t apologize enough on your hostess’ behalf. This waitress is the reason we would return to your restaurant after this fiasco. She asked us to please stay for as long as we’d like. We finished our drinks, paid the bill and tipped your waitress generously for her professionalism and excellent service.
Your hostess has got to go!

Great restaurant with outstanding food. Been there a few times and the food is very consistent. Service is very good. Good downtown location with pay parking right behind the restaurant. It’s also handy being across the street from Winnipeg Jets arena.

Very load - almost impossible to talk over the music sometimes! Food is terrific. Servings seem to be smaller on event nights. Boo! Drinks are excellent albeit loaded with ice and a bit overpriced.

This was amazing. I got together with friends for my birthday and it was just excellent. A friendly enough place to bring my toddler, visit with my 30-something aged friends and have interesting adult food in a fun environment. I would highly recommend to everyone.

Ive been there twice now. This last time the food was good overall, the Korean chicken is my favourite but was a little on the over done side this time.

Otherwise my co-diners and I enjoyed it.

This was a very pleasant different experience. The dishes came out one at a time which we were not expecting. We all shared different dishes. Everything had amazing flavour! Google said the restaurant opened at 4, we made a reservation for 4:30 turns out that the restaurant only opens at 5, but they let us in early and that was awesome! It was very busy towards the end of our stay and it became very loud, so people with hearing aids might have difficulty with this. The food had some spice to it, I happen to like spice so I was pleasantly surprised.

The food was mostly very good. For the main course, we had the Dan Dan noodles, which I highly recommend. We also had the fried chicken, but I don't think I'd recommend that. It was kind of like eating KFC. Appetizers were amazing (Yellowfin Tuna, can't remember the other).

My only complaint was that the tables were very close together, so there isn't a lot of room to get in and out, as well as when the waiter is servicing the table beside you.

A great place to go before a Jet’s Game. The food was tasty but smaller portions. Not a lot of space between tables and noisy but fun and enjoyable with a group of friends. Half price for a bottle of wine on Thursday was a good deal. I would definitely recommend this restaurant.

We frequent this restaurant because it is consistently great! Staff are fun yet not too much hanging at your table. Food is amazing and I never get tired of my regular choices - DanDan Noodles, Street Corn and Thai Rice ( we have it with chicken because of allergies to Shrimp ) and there are plenty others to try!
In quick or linger if you want. Its worth the trip!

Special evening with family party of four.
Cheerful service staff, helpful with menu suggestions.
Tapas style plates, great for sharing, and impeccable presentation! We loved the mix of unique flavours. Dishes were delivered promptly. A steady stream of pleasure! We were all thoroughly satisfied.
This is one of our city’s culinary gems, with warm ambiance and an open kitchen directed by a master chef.
Highly recommended!

Food was delicious. There are 2 sections and we sat in a very very noisy section. One have been much better in the larger, more open area. The section we say in felt too enclosed and extremely loud.
Service was excellent.
