    Why has no one else said how dirty and gross this place is?? Many seats are severely torn, there is a huge hole in the bathroom, there is literally rotting of the wall. The place is filthy.

    The portion sizes are large and meat always tender regardless of your choice. Great place to eat and definitely worth the wait. My entire family love going here!

    Always a fun dinner night, if you don't mind the extra spending.

    Pretty much anything. When I'm with my hubby, Donald we usually get the meal for two that has steak, shrimp and chicken with the usual noodles rice soup and salad.

    If your food is a little dry, ask for some sauces. Seafood sauce is good. They also have an Asian barbecue type sauce that's decent.

    My favorite is always the "chef special" with double steak instead of the scallop and double rice. The chefs here are masters. I always want to come back for another excellent meal.

    Always a good time. The salad is delicious. Friendly staff and the food is always good!!

    Unimpressive. Severely undercooked rice and overcooked chicken. House wine was old and expired. Not worth the wait. Almost inedible.
