There were so many interesting choices which made it hard to decide what to order, but thankfully our waiter was spot with great recommendations. Beef Satay appetizer was very tender, Tequila Mockingbird cocktail had a variety of flavors which was an excellent compliment to the Yellow Curry with Udon noodles. My husband enjoyed the Beef Basil Stir-fry.

We will definitely go back to try more entrees.

I had high hopes for this place. But I guess they were having an off night. It is a beautiful place but the food was totally bland and tasteless. I expected hot and spicy. Our waitperson got 3 out of 8 drink orders completely wrong, And the service was slow.

One member of our party said that she goes there often and sometimes the food is amazing and sometimes its not. . . The satays were really good though.

Have eaten "in" and eaten "(take) out" of the restaurant a few times now.

Beautiful, well-seasoned "fresh" food. Perfect combinations and a unique atmosphere. The interior has a unique origin - most of the main bar area is from the original "Times Bar", which was previously located in downtown Minneapolis - and was moved from the original location because that's where they built the new Target corporate headquarters. They moved all of the interior architectural features and re-placed them in a nearly exact fashion - a piece of history preserved! For many years it continued to operate as the Times Bar and Grill - many a Sunday brunch there.

Pad Thai, Ginger Stir Fry, Caramelized Onion Won Tons, vegetarian egg rolls (get the chili dipping sauce) - it's all good! You can't go wrong with a choice; good thing we don't live next door...

One of the first negative things that strikes visitors is a terribly designed interior. This place used to be a pub and it still show much of its original design but now there are some elements of Asian design and all that together creates a cheap feel. The place is loud so if you're there for a drink it's OK but forget about a quiet dinner. In the basement is another venue that plays live music and it just crates more discomfort for the guests. The restrooms are cheaply remodeled and not quite that clean. The drinks and food are OK. The menu is strange mix of sandwiches, burgers and Asian types of food. It appears that this place us trying to be a bit of everything but in the end it only goes half-way in whatever it's trying to accomplish .

First thing which struck me when I entered the place was the ambiance and the mood! Very lively and young place, yet cozy and comfortable. The booths afford you enough privacy and there is a separate room with long tables for larger groups. The food was good, not the best asian fusion food I have had but would again for sure.
