My boyfriend and I have eaten here a few times and it’s always been good. I was excited about the pupu platter, and it was as good as the meat version I grew up with. The first time we went here, there was no sterno for the platter, so they gave us an extra appetizer item to fill the space where it usually went in the tray. They also gave my boyfriend complimentary soup since my dish came with soup and his didn’t. The basil beef was really good, although my boyfriend’s almond chicken was not very good. Since then we’ve gone back and everything has been good. The only downfall is that the restaurant has moved to a new location down the street that lacks the charm of the old location with its neon teapots on the ceiling. This place has ugly bear shaped jelly lamps instead. It’s also harder to find parking at the new location.over 7 years ago
Pros: very large vegan and kosher Asian menu. Good ambiance and service. Anything fried was really pretty good (but that is hardly surprising).
Cons: The food was really just kinda average. More expensive than one might think. Not a good combination.
So, for more details, we (three people) were there for dinner a got a big sampler platter that contained maybe six different appetizers. I actually thought this was the best thing we had. Most of of them were fried in some manner, though… not exactly healthy, but they were tasty. We also got three different entrees: fried tofu in an almond sauce, oyster mushroom florentine, and a noodle dish with mock duck. The almond thing was alright, but the sauce was not really almond-y. Actually, all of the dishes were just alright. They seemed a bit heavily sauced, and the sauces were a bit on the bland side.
One of the people I was with had been here before, but she said that last time she was there everything was much better, so perhaps the quality of the menu is uneven. Or maybe one should just get the fried stuff.
Bill total for three people was $75 with tip… included the big appetizer, three entrees, 2 orders of rice, and 3 hot teas. That was pretty steep for the quality of the dinner. Going here for lunch would be a far better deal as I believe they have inexpensive lunch specials.over 7 years ago
