This place with pan-Asian foods is quiet, and elegant. The menu is varied and intriguing. The service was excellent. I had a seaweed salad that was fabulous, along with my entree. I plan to go here regularly.

We had a lunch here and were impressed. The food was cooked perfectly, best tasting and no overabundance of salt or any other seasonings. We requested the food be made incredibly spicy hot and it was!!! Excellent service, great surroundings---We will be returning often!
