Service was sketchy at times and they try to get you to buy wine by the glass so they line their pockets more deeply. Food was good, but should one really have to buy rice as an add on to the entree?? Expect it to...More

Dear WRHOTEN Not sure where to start with your review but here goes... Our waiters have not been trained or instructed to up sell wines particularly by the glass. Why would you expect rice for free as its a cost of sale for the business...More

The food was overpriced for the quality and taste, and the service was terrible. We were seated for nearly 15 mins before anyone came to even get a drinks order.

This is not a real review. We do not have guests waiting for 15 minuets ever! Most of our genuine guests comment on our food quality and value so maybe you are again mistaken thats if your profile is even genuine, Enjoy your trolling elsewhere...
