Tasty food with some amazing presentations to wow the customers.. The appetizers were not much food for the price. Main dishes tended to be generously sized but a lot of filler to make them look so big. Squeaky-clean interior. "Too-cool-for-the average customer' wait staff [sorry that I interrupted your me-time while you waited on us]. Had that feel of a "safe place to eat" that is attractive to a certain kind of tourist. We may be back for appetizers but will spend our main money elsewhere.

Hi Carol,

I was glad to read that you felt our food was flavorful and generously sized, but it was disappointing to read your perspective of our waitstaff. So much of our guest feedback revolves around how friendly and helpful our staff is. We look forward to your next visit for appetizers:)

The menu is made up of interesting choices of Asian influenced dishes. I had the Vietnamese fish and chips which was 3 nice size pieces of delicate white fish flashfried with thin sweet potato french fries over a bed of slightly spicy, dressed Asian style slaw. My companion had the pad thai, which was a huge serving and she kept exclaiming how tasty it was.

There were plenty of choices, priced in the $12-$18 range. A korean influenced rice bowl, a Pho, and a satay/curry, to name a few.

This is definitely a place to go in with an open mind and a willingness to try some new flavors and you'll be happy.

The only reason I couldn't give it a Excellent rating was that with a drink, the average tab would be $20-$25 which is considerably more than I spend for lunch. But for a treat when you are traveling, seeing Shakespeare and vacationing, it fits the bill perfectly. I would come back again.

Service was good, the interior design well done and the presentation of the food lovely.

Pretty disappointed in the food. Definitely lacked flavor. Our waitress recommended the Stone Rice Bowl, we paid $18 for it and there was no flavor. We had to ask for teriyaki sauce so we could enjoy it, which they charged $0.75. Won't be coming back.

We sat outside and were immediately helped. The drinks were so good as was the Lobster rolls! We opted for a warm lava cake with coconut something ice cream to share and it was to die for. Great place!
