I tried several things that my family ordered. Even the salad was not the greatest. The scallops tasted fishy. The rice was non flavorful. Our bill was $1,500 and I would never go back.

We had some great seafood but it is not cheap. Plan to spend $40-50 per person. My shrimp was huge and tasty. Spouse had great Salmon. Had good local $7.50 beer.
