    Great food and drinks at a great price!

    Staff seem unhappy, have a "I don't give a shit attitude". Food is pretty poor too. Popcorn beef was like a plate of rubber bands in sugar sauce and pork dumplings had zero flavor.

    The sushi was good and the waitress was very attentive. Would come back. Was bummed when they didn't do a drink they have posted online. But oh well

    I didn't get to try much on the menu but this spot is super nice, staff was friendly and the atmosphere was also good. I had wonton soup, and chicken and shrimp fried rice, loved it.
