Eddy outdid himself. We truly enjoyed the Tuna Tataki and the Coconut Panko Shrimp. The sashimi was fresh and tasty. We are absolutely thrilled that he changed his seating to bigger, padded, comfortable chairs and stools. A marvellous time. Remember, though, that he usually closes...More

Hallelujah! Eddy has added to the appeal of his restaurant by replacing the small wooden chairs with larger, high back chairs with padded seats. Very comfortable for an enjoyable meal. And enjoyable it was. Always first class, fresh and affordable.

This place deserves a 5, overall rating, but expectations of visitors may question my judgement. I come from Vancouver, Canada, a hot bed of stellar Asian food, so my bar is very high, usually. Let's be honest, we're quite a ways from the coast, so...More

If their usual day closed is Tuesday, then I would think they'd be closed, but they don't consider the 26th a holiday here, and will have the Monday off for Christmas, so they'll likely be open.
