    I love this restaurant! Get the Kalua Pig lettuce wraps, they're awesome! Chef comes around to talk to you too and he's nice and laid back makes you feel special ;-)

    Most awesome gin rosemary martini...sounds strange but it was amazing! That was apart from the typically yummy food - shrimp shumai, garlic noodles, edamame, spring rolls, what else? All so good! Plus

    Butterfly - nice view but noisy inside. We had smocked salmon w/ strawberries (yak!), kalua pig and peking duck were delicious though. The cocktails were so strong... Omg! Be careful!

    The oyster shooters are wonderful, according to the friend that accompanied me. Their bourbon/whiskey cocktails are quite smooth albeit potent. The interior design adds to the overall experience.

    Get the server Porter Anthony. He made the experience amazing for two young and tired professionals. Trust me. Ask to be state with him and you won't be sorry.

    The clay pot chicken was very satisfying. Break the egg yolk and dip your bacon-wrapped chicken in it!

    Request a seat by the window when making a reservation. Also, order the Kalua pig - it's totally the best dish there.

    they frown upon ordering water. better order two glasses because it takes a while to get a refill. Kobe burger is amazing!

    Looks more expensive than it actually is. Decent atmosphere right on the pier, and some filling, delicious food.

    Good food but they took way too long to get our orders and it was near impossible to catch the waiter to get refills.
