Maybe will return. 3.5.

I’d dined there more than a decade ago. Found them to be expensive for the sake of expensive. Low ceiling in their private room in the back. Taste was really average.

     

This time my impression improved. The new deco (don’t really now how new or how old) is warm. The kimono by the entrance is a nice touch. The bathroom is crispy. Fresh flowers (extra point). I ordered the volcano beef which tastes to my liking. But the rice is horrible- unevenly cooked. One of my companions ordered the tasting dim sum (?) – an elaborately presentation – do they reuse them, I wondered. The carving skill is good but … I’m kind of caveman who likes her food less massaged.

The waiting staff said it’s the same owner, which is good. Keep up the good part and improve on the short. Best of the luck.

Parking is easy in their lot.
