Very good variety of Asian fusion type fare. Seafood to duck to fried rice. I especially liked the peanut-chocolate pie desert. My companion enjoyed a wonderful duck presentation while another in our party had great sushi. Service was very good.

My wife and I arrived for dinner at 8:30, advertised hours are 5:00 to 9:00. When we walked in we were informed that they closed at 8:30. This appeared to be for the convience of the staff, not the customers.
