Unique theme. Stopped in for lunch. Ordered the sea bass. Quite tasty. Service was fast friendly and attentive. Price was fair.

We took our daughter here for her birthday. What an awesome and fun place to eat!!!

We really aren't into Tofu, but there were plenty of other options on the menu. The ribs are a must, so delicious!!!

We will definitely be going back, and plan on reserving on of the private pod areas for our next family celebration.

Tried this restaurant for dining days. This was our first time here. Great atmosphere and good fend shui. However, waiter Patrick did not introduce himself. Did not explain what things meant, just told us to read the menu. Did not like the fact my friend and I were sat in the back of the restaurant when multiple tables were open in the front. Maybe it was because we are black, not sure. And there was an Indian man who came in after us who was also seated in the back. Anyways, food and drinks were good, however, both my friend and I had horrible stomach pains afterwards. Least to say, we had food poisoning. We probably won't be going back there anytime soon.

I have dined here at least 25 times and never had a bad experience. To begin: POD is a very cool looking place with several pods around the restaurant for large groups (see photo).

They always have cool, young servers who are patient and knowledgeable about the menu. The Asian food is very good. We especially like the calamari salad, lettuce wraps, dumplings and sea bass.

Yes it is a bit pricey and, if you are coming by car, valet parking is $20 plus tip.

I have dined here twice, I love the food, and the ambiance. Service is laid back and casual but still attentive and professional at the same time. Although the food is good, it is a little pricey. Also, the hosts really don't seem to know what they are doing. (coming from a host....lol).
