    Good food: fine quality meat (not the greatest, but good nevertheless). Excellent lady (Yao Yao) assisting at the table. Two less good points: (1) we were informed only when we arrived that we would have the table for 1 hour 45 minutes. May seem enough, but food did not start to arrive until 20 minutes had elapsed. At the end, we had to rush to finish our s'mores so we could vacate in time. (2) We had notified the restaurant that it was my son's 18th birthday, but they did not sing for him, bring out a piece of cake for him, or acknowledge in any way. Disappointing.

    Service was excellent we were never in need. The Garlic Rice was exquisite. I like the Garlic Spinach and Mushroom (I like garlic), but the cooking pouches took most of the grill space.

    Had to wait for our table despite having a reservation on a Saturday night which I was fine with. Had a cocktail at the bar as we waited. Finally got seated and then there was no server to come by for at least another 30 mins it felt like. Thankful the person I’m assuming who was the manager that night from the front came and took our order. Wait another 45 mins if not long to the point before our food even came out they were doing last call. Food though at least tasted fresh and was good. Cooking process could be improved. The items often stick to the grill and the flimsy tongs are not designed to be used for that purpose. Every surface was sticky which was kind of gross. The sauce bottles in particular were so sticky we refrained from using them. This place has seen better days. And my god the party next to us was so loud it was near impossible to converse with my guest nor could the other diners near us.

    Service was poor and irritating this time. Our server was rude and very dismissive. We shared most of the food that we ordered. When we ordered 1 soda, she was literally guarding us because according to her sharing the soda is not allowed because it was refillable. We've dined in this restaurant several times and this is the first I've heard that sharing a soda is not allowed. Because of her tight guarding, I finally told her that we don't need a refill, so you don't have to guard us in consuming the soda and you can go away. End of story!!!!

    The dining room is worn, drafty and unattractive. Food is fresh and tasty but quite expensive for a relatively casual meal.
