The happy hour special is currently 1/2 priced cocktails and $1 dumplings from 5-7 pm and you can get this deal anywhere in the restaurant (bar, dining room, patio). Definitely try the garlic noodles and chili wontons along with the pork and chicken dumplings. Cocktails were a good size and my favorite was the Big Pink (Milagro Silver Tequila, Créme de Cassis, Grapefruit Soda). Perfect for date night or happy hour with friends!

The service was very good and the atmosphere was nice, minus the fact that the dining area is right next to the bar which makes the noise level quite high. Wouldn’t recommend for a romantic evening or anything but it was a fun vibe.

It was happy hour and drinks were half off, so my husband had 4 drinks and I had 3, and we can honestly tell you that we did not feel a single thing. We are not sure they even contained any alcohol at all. They tasted good, but were expensive for non-alcoholic drinks. Additionally the food was just ok, definitely have had better at other restaurants. Neither of us would recommend this place to others.

There’s definitely a relaxed atmosphere and chill vibe, so would definitely consider going back for happy hour to take advantage of the half price drinks and $1 dumplings. Special shout out to their wine list which has quality wines at a great price point—really really enjoyed my experience. Started off with the red chili wontons and crab Rangoon. Both were delicious. Was hoping for a bit more heat with the red chili wontons, but they were so tasty that there isn’t much of the complaint. I had the garlic noodles with fried chicken, which was delicious and not what I was expecting at all—there were some Asian flavors, but the noodles were finished off with Parmesan cheese. We also tried the char siu chicken. The chicken had more of a spare rib flavor to it, so it was a bit confusing for the senses. We rounded things out with the lemon marscapone cake, which was so good, we got one to go. After dinner service, the place turns into a kind of cool, upbeat neighborhood spot with really great friendly staff. Highly recommend!!

Problems: (1) very noisy in the bar area; we were able to move to a table outdoors. (2) The kitchen was slow and actually lost one of orders; they did reward us with free desserts. Strengths: everything else. Great drinks; very good to excellent dishes; good table service. We'll be back.

Energetic party vibe - good for a night out but way too loud to have a conversation. The pork belly bao was amazing but the fusion dishes with cheese were so-so. I might go back for bao at the bar on an off night.

They made it clear what the time limit for the table was at the beginning. However, multiple times during our meal, they would remind us. After we had already given our cards for our bill (much before our allotted time was to end), two people came up to me and my friend reminding us that our table time was almost up that we should plan on leaving. It was really quite rude and made us feel like we were not welcome. The staff and management really need to work on making their guests feel more welcome.
