So I only went to this restaurant once, but I am crazy about ceviche and get it everywhere that i can and their salmon ceviche was AWESOME. It was citrusy and spicy and tangy - i could eat it for days.\r
I got the filet mignon too taht was pretty good - I've had better (wasn't the fondest of the black truffle sauce), but it was still enjoyable.\r
We got paella too and it was quite tasty. It had a great menu. I'd def go back.

So, I can't comment on the service because I've only gotten delivery, but I can comment on the food :) It's my fave place to order from in the area. The creamcheese wontons are FREAKING PHENOMENAL. We always get 1 order per person. I haven't had an item that i was dissappointed in. Obviously this isn't gourmet dining, but for some tasty casual chinese food i'd definitely recommend.

Yes, this place gets crowded and maybe the seating isn't as quick as one would hope, but the the food was amazing. The ingredients are SO fresh. The steak was cooked perfectly. The rose whipped cream was heavenly. The portions are small, but really tasty. I remember the Sangria being pretty good, not great but nothing to complain about. I love this place.

A couple of my coworkers came over for our project from India and have dinner at this place pretty much every single night. I joined them once for the buffet lunch and was impressed. The spread isn't extensive, but everything is very tasty - and it's only $8.50 so you can't really go wrong. We went for dinner a couple times after and haven't been disappointed. The mix grill can be shared between 2 or 3 - but the meat is a little dry...the Palak Paneer is great, and their cauliflower appetizer is great (I don't even like cauliflower and really enjoyed it). I love their garlic naan and chicken tandoori. And, the staff is very friendly and attentive. They even made a special order for us to pick up after hours since my teammates go there so often...\r
All in all, I would definitely recommend. If you're new to indian food and aren't sure what to order, check out the buffet lunch!
