My wife and I came here for her birthday celebration and it offered a fabulous diverse menu of Asian across Chinese, Japanese and Thai cuisines. Ambience is an A+ and we went with pork Dim Sum followed by Lobster Wonton soup, salad and a Chef selection boat of sushi/sashimi. High prices but worth it !

Came with a large group of people and really enjoyed ourselves. The food was good but not great. Much more of an Asian fusion flavor than a tradional flavor. The giant fortune cookie filled with mousse was particulary good. A bit on the noisy side but nothing surprising from a Manhattan restaurant.

A large, vibrant and low lit restaurant. It's quite a hot spot - similar to Buddha Bar (Knightsbridge) in London, UK. The food is mediocre and certainly not great value for the price. I would suggest drinks as they have quite a few bars inside. If money is no option then I would take a trip here. The service was very good.

If you are someone that likes high end Chinese and Japanese food then this is the place for you. The restaurant has a very cool and funky ambiance with a big buddha statue in the middle and a bar at the front of the restaurant. The food itself was very tasty and the service was very good considering that it was a large and crowded restaurant. The food is just very expensive for what it is but I had a good experience. I recommend that you make a reservation in advance because it is very busy.
