    Secret off-menu item: order the Red Dragon Tofu! Even if you aren't vegetarian or vegan (and it is both), you'll love the deep fried tempura, the spicy red dragon sauce and fresh crisp wok veggies.

    I expected this to be a bit over-hyped, but the food was really good. Service was solid, and the vibe in the place was great. I would definitely go again. The tomato salad was superb as an opener.

    Pork tenderloin was wonderful and tender, even though cooked medium well. Wasabi mashed potatoes were awesome, as was the Chinese eggplant. Pad Thai was decent. Milk chocolate caramel tart ftw!
