The atmosphere is great! Love the giant fish tank. Service was good, food was just ok. The tuna poke bowl was delicious. The tacos could have had a better tortilla, they were just ok.

Overall a fun and vibrant experience. Service was exceptional and food was good. A bit pricier than some of the more local joints but still a good time.
