    Schezwan flash fried squid (calamari) is the best I've ever had anywhere, hands down. All the sushi rolls are great, too!

    Crab rangoons were ok nothing special I have had better. We ordered Szechwan Spicy Chicken and singapore noodles, didn't taste fresh at all. Price is definitely not worth it.

    The fist is very fresh, but rolls have way too much rice. Stick to the nigiri. The schezuan veggies and veg Lo mein are delicious. The chicken and shrimp udon is a favorite.

    Had an awesome sushi roll as an appetizer. I think it was salmon on the beach, my new favorite! Also had the Mongolian beef and orange chicken. Both were great. Good cake and cappuccinos as well

    It reminded me that I was never a fan of their sushi. And my ginger was TOO dry. Just didn't look & tastes fresh at all. :(
