Came in around 4:00 and a bunch of servers and greeters at the door. Place had no one else inside except me. Waited more than 20 mins and no one took my order. So I walked out.

This. Location has changed hands over the years and I'm not a fan of mystery Asian food so I've stayed away. Today at a friend's urging we went for lunch and I enjoyed it. It's very pleasant inside and the menu was varied enough that...More
