They have moved over to Slipway which is a much nicer location on the water. We tried two noodle dishes which were both good but the chicken pad thai was way too sweet, no heat at all and was thrown together. The beef noodle was...More

Honestly, I went with my boyfriend and the food was magnificent. I asked the waiter for his advice and the spicy crispy tuna sushi rolls are TO DIE FOR. I also had the tuna sashimi which was divine!! Splendid night overall!!!!
