We had a little time to wait for a ferry, so we scouted around the dock area and came upon this unusually named restaurant. It being an asian type restaurant, I knew I could find a vegetarian option on the menu. We were pleasantly surprised to find a great menu with lots of tasty things to eat. The waitress was... More

The menue had al lot of different choices to choose between and they all sounded delicious. I went for the salmon taco and it was not only a beautiful sight, but tasted so smooth and good. All different unique flavours was in a perfect harmony to each other.

We had a birthday party at the place. I had salmon and coconut which was very taste and certainly good looking portion. The other tested several other dishes and they all looked equally delicious. Small minus that the party of 20+ was served by one waitress. The location is however superb.

All drinks were good, but 12€/each Starters (nachos), tacos and Chalupas were good - 16-19€/portion, but the portion were quite small. So as a summary: food was good and portions were nice, but...

I had a lunch with my friend in July. Restaurant were not busy, lot of free tables. Which made as wonder why our table were cleaned up for next visitor while we were taking second plate... Nevertheless, the food was fresh and very tasty. I can recommend.

Went for after work with colleague - absolutely delicious drinks. Had the "Shanghai set menu" which was 30€ including nachos, guacamole, veggie ceviche, spicy taco and some almond cake for the desert. Great food, easy-going atmosphere, would go again!

Good cocktails. Spicy food was scipy as promised. Overall flavors were quite good. Not very much variety in the menu.
