I’d been past this restaurant numerous times. It has no curb appeal and I assumed they served fried food or something lame. I was so wrong! It came up on a search for Korean BBQ so we made it a destination. They have fresh meat,...More

Came for lunch with some friends, and I'm not going to lie, I looked at menu, and wondered "What is this?". My friends that had been before helped me in making selections. I got the lamb, steak, and eggplant skewers that came with the bacon...More

All of the other reviews I found were favorable so I thought Id give this place a go. Food was unimpressive, server uninformed, and, considering this was supposed to be Chinese street food, the beachy nautical decor was confusing. We ended up getting takeout from...More

This place serves a unique twist on Chinese food. They serve Chinese street BBQ, something that everyone should try out. Basically they are servings of small portions of meets and veggies, spiced to your degree of likeness and grilled.

Delicious Chinese street food without the 12 hour flight. Main items all come on bamboo skewers just like you get from street food vendors in China. The appetizers are excellent too, particularly the Trifecto Potato. It's true, it's not typical Americanized "Chinese" food, it's very...More

Chinese street food -- that is to say skewers of meat and veggies grilled to perfection -- spicy to your taste. Fun to share until you find your fav. Other offerings too, but we rave about the skewers. Staff fun and friendly, too. Encourage you...More
