Occasionally, I would suggest this place for gatherings but since last visit in June, I noticed the food quality is not as good as before. I wondered there might be new chefs.

I live near Westlake Shopping Center and one of my go-to restaurants for Asian food is Banana Island. There's a parking garage in front and it's always easy to find parking. Handicap parking is on the ground floor. I usually eat here after Mass on...More
