What an amazing blend of tastes. The soup dumplings are a must, be I believe one could try anything here and not be disappointed. Come with an empty stomach and you'll leave with a full heart.

The service is excellent. I had the wagyu steak which was also brilliant. Although it is an Asian fusion restaurant, don't expect to find some real Asian food there. The dumpling looks Chinese, but not what's in it, and the skin is too thick. The...More

Dishes were attractively presented and efforts were made to create interesting combinations and tastes. But nothing knocked my socks off. Everyone raves about the soup dumplings, but.... I've had better elsewhere. And cheaper. I guess I can't get past the fact that for an exorbitant...More

Three of us recently visited for lunch and took advantage of a menu designed to emphasize shared starters (appetizers) followed by individual main courses. The wagyu beef skewers were delicious but I think the group agreed that the individually stuffed pork belly steamed buns (bao)...More

Except for the soup dumpling which burned my mouth but was delicious. The salmon was terrific. The spiced donuts were great

We ate there in the evening and I would say that most people were dressed business casual. That was in early May. I would think that during the summer you would see people with shorts and a collared shirt?
