Excellent meal, beautifully presented with fresh crisp vegetables and delicious ribs, wonderful dumplings, and the lobster roll was divine. The perfect way to celebrate our 40th anniversary and well worth the drive from New Haven

We are glad we stumbled into this gem in Shelton. It is unassuming on the outside, in a strip mall between a Stop & Shop and a gym, but don't let that fool you.

The decor inside is stop-notch with generously-sized booths, and the food is a great mix of traditional favorites and innovative specials.

The food was freshly made, well balanced and very reasonably priced.

The service is prompt and friendly without crossing the line into casual familiarity that plagues many casual eating establishments.

Overall, a great experience that we will repeat.

Our first time here & very impressed overall! We were greeted with a warm welcome & sat in a booth. Service was excellent waiters took the time to explain most items on the menu. Fried oysters & dumpling appetizers were very good as well as the Crispy Fish & Thai Basil Beef entree’s . Gary the waiter recommended the ‘fried ice cream’ for dessert. Overall a great dining experience... we will be back!

Went for lunch. Ordered an appetizer and lunch box special. Everything was very good, however, they could have done a better job with timing of when they brought the food out. The soup, appetizer and lunch all were served at the same time.

The positive was our table was ready upon arrival and the food was very good.
We have frequented this restaurant at least twice per month prior to Covid and did take out about 1 - 2 times per month during Covid. Now that my husband and I have had our 2 vaccines, we feel a little better about eating inside restaurants. Food is much better inside the restaurant vs. take out...it really is!!! I need gluten free options and this does not always work for take out, as some foods are bland or if there is a noodle dish, it's dried out and no sauce, because the noodles absorbed it all.
We had a very loud party nearby and there seemed to be a lot of loud talking with owner (Larry) and some diners...they probably need to speak loud to be heard over the music. Not complaining about the music here, as it was great!! We were with another couple and we all enjoyed the music, food, etc. There just needs to be a way to "muffle" the loud peeps!

We arrived on time for our reservation, greeted promptly, and seated almost immediately. Our server Erica was so nice and helpful choosing our meal from the menu. She also made it noted of my allergies to be sure of no slip ups. 10/10 would definitely recommend. We will for sure be dining again

The food was good, the service was below average. Drinks were terrible. We noticed that the wait staff makes the drinks, we wondered if that may be the reason. Large party of ladies came in that were extremely loud.

We really enjoyed dinner, it was great place. The staff was excellent and very attentive. Food was as you’d expect, very good. The gyoza was definitely the highlight. I had a spare rib special that was ok. The tempura fried ice cream was outstanding, somehow warm on the outside yet ice cream was still dead frozen inside. Everyone else at the table had sushi, they loved everything. The drinks were great. Will be going back to try more.

We loved the Nia dumplings but we found the seaweed in the other foods (miso soup and rolls) to be too chewy for our liking.
