Despite living minutes away from this place, I hadn't seen it until I was perusing Yelp earlier today. The actual exterior is rather unassuming, and leads down into the basement where the main room is. I went with my boyfriend, who is decently picky about quality food, and we both thought the food was very tasty.

We split a fried squid appetizer, duck leg and piglet belly "flesh" mains with...more

Buns were just okay to be honest. Prefer a real Chinese place with pork buns.

Sashimi, edamame and chips were good. I was surprised that the sushi was pretty good.

I ordered two duck buns for my main and the duck was dry and the sauce was tasteless. The buns were hot and nice and squishy, but how can you screw up buns right? I think I should have tried pork or steak. I was somehow expecting...more
