Unusual, innovative, Asian fusion menu that includes some time-honored favorites as well as some more unusual dishes. Service was a bit slow, but the ambiance was lively and unpretentious, and every dish we ordered was delicious, including desserts.

The beef dumplings were delicious, as was the pancit. The adobo chicken was a bit sweet as if they used too much vinegar. The cocktails were overpriced for the amount of alcohol in them (tasted like none was included). I'd eat here again though.

This restaurant is not to be missed! Romy, the chef owner is a culinary mastermind. You must order everything from appetizers to dessert and don't forget to try a Sorbet Martini, the best drink ever!
