My sister and brother-in-law were visiting and chose to take them to LIC as the food has always been reliably good at a fair price. However my tuna was not. I should have sent it back. It was not pink on the inside even though...More

We decided to go here based on previous reviews on Trip Advisor even though the restaurant is in a strip mall and doesn't look like a top notch location. We were so glad we gave this place a try because it had the best seafood...More
