Very enjoyable food. Service is good but not exceptional. This is owned/operated by the Landry's company. Burger, Fire Shrimp and Chicken Curry were all delicious. Dim Sum appetizer was great as well.

Yes. I believe it’s a $40 charge if you don’t cancel but I don’t know how far in advance you have to cancel as each restaurant has a different cancellation policy.
