Met friends here after work. They offer $5 small plates during happy hour. The wings, calamari, pot stickers and fish and chips were great for the price!

I stopped here for a late lunch on a Tuesday. I was immediately sat. My order was quickly taken: deviled egg appetizer and the bahn mi sandwich. The food was outstanding and fairly priced. The service was good too

I think this place has great food , but I feel like the service could be a little better .It was the first time I tasted Sushi and it was good . I would surely go back to the restaurant but ONLY if I was staying at the hotel. It is not a place.
