We had lunch here recently to celebrate an anniversary. The place has good ambience with an area with a nice view of a garden. The server assigned to us was very helpful. Food was generally middle of the road but overall, it was still ok.

I ate here twice and lived everything we had. Great pan-Asian selection. The ground pork is exceptional! And for the adventurous, try the Spices Gin and tonic--guarantee you'll never have a drink like it again!.
