We dropped into here to watch some TV coverage during the March. We needed to buy something to sit there which seems far. We ordered the sushi and it was great food. I came with a friend and we shared. The presentation is lovely and the food reflects that. The atmosphere is cozy and warm - very nice. The servers... More

If you want a side of attitude with your food, this is your place. As other reviewers have said, customer service in this place unfortunately has become ridiculously bad, especially by the lady manager who also takes orders in the bar. After coming here several times, we tried to ignore her consistently rude responses, attitude, faces, and even mistreating seeing... More

Great location right in the Verizon Center theater/arena complex. There was no line or wait so we were seated quickly about an hour before the game. The Tempura Coconut Shrimp appy was a very good way to start. My Pad See Ew with Beef & Broccoli was excellent (wide rice noodles stir fried with broccoli, onions and beef) and my... More

I try this place occasionally but it continues to be awful. I think they must reheat food and then charge high prices. How do they stay in business?

Papaya Salad best I've had in DC besides my own. However, the service I had to go through just to get it was piss poor horrible, the young lady our server and apparent bartender may had did all in her power to show she didn't care about her service to us. She made horrible drinks and when told if she... More

I stop here frequently before seeing a movie upstairs at Gallery Place -- service is fast and friendly and the food is good. Try the chicken with pineapple. Presentation varies, but sometimes it is served in a carved out pineapple and very pretty as well as delicious.

Found this place tucked in a corner next to regal cinema and decided to give it a try. The service was very nice and the food was excellent.

Chose location because of proximity to ACC basketball tournament which was in attached Verizon Center. All 4 of us felt the food was good....nothing exceptional. Tables are too close together. Felt we were sitting with people next to us on both sides.

The food was OK, somewhat expensive with respect to the size of the portions. They have a big and complicated menu, but the food doesn't live up to the hype. The place was clean but a little stuffy. The worst part was the service - they rushed to take our orders but took forever to serve and even longer to... More

The food tastes good, but the waitress charged us 18% of gratuity. We were only a couple. That's ridiculous!
