The desserts were great and the linguine with lobster was good, but I didn't really like the popcorn with brown sugar sprinkled on top that we were served while waiting for our entrees.

This restaurant is 100% worth a visit while in Ithaca, NY! The Asian fusion food never disappoints, and new menu items are constantly being featured! It is important not to get too full, as you will want to save room for the myriad of desserts!
