Saw this place, got in line and were seated quickly, Knew nothing about it so were happily surprised to find the food quick and tasty. And we were just in time as the lines were out the door shortly after we were seated.

Service was ok. Menu had numerous choices for entrees. Wasabi salmon was great. Sides were bland. Salad Portions were tiny. Sent coconut cake back. It was dry. I had heard it was fantastic but was disappointed.
