We used to stay here for lunch. The place is amazing! They offer a wide range of international foods with an asian taste. The plates are really huge, the staff is very kind and the prices affordable and the service fast. The chefs use to prepare the dishes in an open wide space under your supervision.

Good place to grab a bite if you're in the airport area. The menu has a variety of items ranging from bar type nibbles to more upscale dishes. I would compare this to a TGI Fridays but a bit better.

Good food but only bar bites are available after 9:00pm. I was pleasantly surprised with their selection of salads and international appetizers.

My wife and I went here and lived it! The drinks are sooo good and we just ended up getting appetizers! Close to the San Fransisco air port made it a perfect stop for us! Go check it out if you're in the area. Love the decor as well!

I had dinner here and the meal was pretty good. I'd recommend people to this restaurant if they are looking for a nice meal. Service was pretty good and the staff was nice.

It is a very trendy restaurant with several styles of food offerings such as American and even Asian inspired dishes. Very good size portion and tasty. The view is great of the SFO airport and the bay.

Terribly noisy! Food portions very generous. I had the Chicken Marsala. It was average a bit on the salty side though. Service was good but never got a refill on my iced tea. No one looked to see if I needed one!

The menu is HUGE. Ive always had a problem with restaurants that have huge menus, they really arent great at anything. The same would go for this one. If you wanted to get out of the hotel and you are near here, then its good for a night. But, nothing great, nothing to absolutely go do.

Great restaurant, great service and tall beers, all while looking out over the bay and a great place to watch the planes landing into SFO.
