    Don't expect to get any benefits from their rewards program!  Free birthday dinner the month of your birthday?  But not ON your birthday if it is January 1st - not valid.  Really?

    Great restaurant. Order the seafood diablo (but note that "diablo" has a reason - it is hot like hell!) and the plum wine. They're both delicious.

    The best part is that you get to watch them cook the food in front of you. Then you get to eat it and get stuffed.

    If you're hungry, go "double" on the chicken fried rice. That way, you can eat one while your entree is being cooked.
