I was tempted by the ridiculous K2 burger but alas it looked too massive even for my large appetite. I ended up having a full rack of ribs and the Dragon Balls appetizer. Don't let the description fool you, it's not as spicy as they make it sound (I do however eat a lot of spicy food and it takes... More

You guys got something good going on here why would you wait until 4 to open? Share the flavors fun and hospitality. I love this place but you have to make sure your timing is perfect because they don't open until 4pm. Great service and quality food with a great selection of food items on the menu. I highly recommend... More

I've dined in this restaurant several times and it used to be good years back, but with time all good things come to an end. The last few times were a big disappointment from the 80s style service to the inconsistent food. We used to go in and automatically order the Mediterranean Wontons, they were always a treat, something you... More

Somewhat inconsistent product here, and similar in terms of service as well. Burger or veal worth a try.

This licensed establishment features unique and original fare as well as more traditional items. If you have the 'guts' and wallet for it, their monster sized burgers (sized to feed 4 or more) are the signature treat. A great eclectic atmosphere, well kept and with extremely positive staff make for a memorable dining experience. I keep coming back.

Dined here many times. Food is good. Wonton soup is delish! Interior is a tad dated and perhaps in need of renovations... but the eclectic decor kinda grows on you!
