I ordered off the small plates menu and had the potstickers, Waygu beef skewers and scallops. All very good, especially the beef and scallops. Restaurant can be very noisy but I got a quiet table in the lounge. Service was terrific. The food is expensive...More

My husband and I enjoyed the cocktails and small bites very much. There was one dumpling item which contained in essence French Onion soup. Get that! It’s to die for. The share plate of spare ribs tasted good but it was way over priced. Also...More

I'm glad to hear you all enjoyed your meal, though I'm sorry to hear that the ambiance on the patio detracted from your experience. The patio is great on summer weekend nights when the delivery trucks at least are gone. Stop back in for happy...More
