A group of ten women for an evening meal. The surroundings were pleasant and clean and little different. The service was good. There was a good variety of dishes, and my salmon was delicious. I also had room for an amazing dessert which was generous....More

We got a mochacino and a soy hot chocolate. Both drinks were very tasty. Drinks came with marshmallows and chocolate. The lady that serviced us was very friendly.

The reason I have given this a very good rating and not excellent is not because of the food (which was excellent) but because of the ambience. This is not to say it was awful, but it was very plain and with bare floors increased...More

Description
The Adzuki Bean is the love bean. In ancient times, a man went away to war. His wife waited for him under a big tree on a high mountain. Till he returned, she missed him so much her flowing tears turned to blood. The bright blood drops became red seeds, and the seeds germinated and rooted, growing into a big tree full of red berries.Slowly the red berries on the big tree joined with the wife's heartache, to become heart-shaped - the Adzuki Bean, the most beautiful bean in the world. Hard as a diamond, red as blood, shaped like a pulsating heart, glittering and transparent, dazzling the eyes. In China, the Adzuki Bean is precious like jade, and signifies spirituality and luck. It can always bring good luck in love.Adzuki Bean Cafe & Restaurant wishes you the very best luck - in life as in love.
