    Food is a little soy sauce heavy and the fried rice isn't as good as it was a year ago.

    Reserve the loft for parties. We had a group of fifty and everyone was very happy and well taken care of. We loved it! #givemeyourcat

    They do not ask you how spicy you want the food. Explicitly tell them. Also, I tried 2 dishes; both sauces were too sweet.

    Ugh, really expensive and pretentious. It's bloody Chinese food.

  • Sawyer H.

    If you're looking to have a fun night, DO NOT come here. Security is dumb as hell and kicked people out for no reason

    No separate checks. Forgot this used to be Wicked Smile--I ate there just once, too. Ridiculous for a group of two couples to have to be fumbling with exchanging cash in the 21st century.

  • Tyler P.

    Great fast service. Heat seeker shrimp are where it's at. And the atmosphere is killer.

    Tyler Parker · October 15, 2011

    For $12 take-out Gen. Tso's chicken... Not so good.

    If I could marry the crispy beef and move into a house and raise our crispy children I would. Simply amazing

    Justin Baker · August 26, 2011

    Here's the deal: the scallion pancakes are the SHIT! And if you're drunk, they're unreal.

    Jarrod Ekengren · February 12, 2011
  • David B.

    The Sesame Beef is the best item on the menu.

  • Scott G.

    The heat seeker shrimp is tasty, but less spicy than it used to be. Make sure they send out some Sriracha!
