The staff is amazing, friendly, and humorous. Their food is simply the best. Karaoke every Thursday night at 10:30 is always a good time.

The red curry soup with pork meatballs and mushrooms was delicious. The sushi was also great. The beer list is very cleverly divided either by brewery or by type of beer, which makes choosing easy. Service is also great. Highly recommended!

It's a little difficult to get a table here sometimes so call for reservations. The specials are creative, the menu, to me at least, has the perfect balance of selection and taste range. We tend to prefer the window table in the bar. If you...More
