Went with friends for dinner. Many dishes were lovely - the spring rolls, soups, the Chinese-type choices, the sushi with Thai sauce (fusion) were delights. The apple lemonade was wonderfully refreshing as well.

Our waiter was attentive, detailed, non-hovering, proficient (no notes and accurate without omissions) and had a flexible attitude and good sense of humor.

The atmosphere was classy, calm, clean, creatively arranged and the music was pleasant and not too loud. A great place for a view and conversation with pleasant surroundings.

Desserts were also very nice.

The only disappointment was the PadThai noodles - they were too fishy and the dish lacked the vibrancy it carries when done very well.

Overall a great experience!!! We will return!

I had walked by this place several times this week. Tonight i went in. The inside is very nice and bigger than it looks. The wait staff were excellent i even go an English menu. I Got the spicy Dom Yum it comes with shrimp. It was good but not spicy like Dom Yum in the US I have had. It was still a good dish. The one thing i wish Chef's would do is de tail the shimp so that i don't have to and get food on my hands it makes it a bit messy. I also got rice noodle and Shrimp and Pineapple. Like the Dom Yum they both had 3 shrimp in each of the dishes. Maybe add a bit more to make the dish a bit more balanced. Overall I would go back and try again.

The restaurant is new having only opened a couple of months ago.

It has a relaxed atmosphere playing perfectly themed music and the food is equally tantalizing.

The kimchi was visually appealing, tender and spicy, with red pepper and peanuts was a good composition.

The salad with the smoked duck and shiitake and wooden mushrooms, fresh vegetables, and aromatic salad dressing was exceptional.

The dorado tartar was a wonderful dish that had velvety smooth creamy texture that soothed your palette after the spicy kimchi.

The Tom Yum soup with seafood, had a richness of flavors and had an abundance of seafood. Garnished with kinza and mushrooms. The flavor was calming and superb.

The mango mousse was phenomenally soft with a delicate but rich flavor.

The banana tempura with vanilla ice cream was prepared perfectly, full of flavors. The combination of hot and cold with a tender inside was truly mouthwatering.

The Chinese green tea with a slightly woody flavor provided a gentle cleansing of the palette.

Our waiter Ivan was extremely polite and provide exceptional recommendations which we followed and resulted in a perfect lunch on a lazy holiday afternoon.
