Great atmosphere! It's a trendy, casual place. Our server Alfredo was very friendly and helpful with the menu. We had the fried rice, Kalbi chicken and brussels sprouts. Everything was good, the brussels sprouts were amazing! Made with bacon, parmesan and unagi sauce. Reasonably priced.

Food and service were good. We tried a few dishes and they were all good. Chris was very welcoming. You got to check the bill though.
