    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.

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