Horrible and not accommodating restaurant with the worst attitude towards customers. My guests were late and the host refused to sit us until everyone was there and ended up canceling our reservation 14 minutes after everyone was supposed to come. I was there and we...More

It’s very popular in Westport. And it’s a bit of fun when they prepare the meal in front of you. And the portions are ample. But it’s pretty average food that they serve. Not terrible, but not great. Service was good.

The show is fun. It is kid friendly. The only concerns I have is that everything is made with butter and soy. Noodles and rice and even the healthy meat and shrimp loads of butter. No wonder the food tastes good. Each meal is three...More
