Myself and my husband had lunch here twice over our trip to New York. The food is really tasty and the service was polite and professional. The lunch menu is very good value and the portions are plentiful. Would definitely recommend.

Lived to my expectations, service was good and was amazing. Perfect marriage of Chinese, Thai, Japanese and everything around. Humungous statue of Buddha takes over the decor, sound of water fountain and other elements complete a beautiful scenario.
