The sushi we ordered was delayed endlessly and when it arrived we were disappointed. Both the orders tasted bland and stale much to our dismay. However, must hand it down to the staff which was very very courteous. Waste of money, calories and time!

We were shopping at Cherry Creek Mall on a recent trip to Denver and decided to grab dinner here. We had the potstickers, tuna entree and a couple of sushi rolls, all of which were very good. What we liked best was the bento-style box dinner that they serve the kids' meals in. Not only did they have healthy options,... More

We went here when my in-laws were in town. We ordered multiple appetizers, drinks & dinner. All were delicious. I ordered the macadamia nut crusted chicken & it was good. The pineapple-papaya marmalade really made the dish. The ambiance of the restaurant was good. They have a large aquarium in the bar area that is really neat as well as... More

First time here, accidentally walked in to this restaurant thinking we were going in the mall entrance from valet. We decided to eat here first. We sat on the patio which was very nice, the weather was decent but the patio had heaters on, I really enjoyed the patio, it was quiet with not many people dining out there. Our... More

What used to be a popular, slightly upscale dining spot in Cherry Creek Mall has changed profoundly with the recent remodel. It is now more of a bar feel, and mall patrons actually walk through the restaurant close to diners to exit to outside! It is the only exit! A bit food court-y due to this effect now, even though...

OK...so it is a mall restaurant. That used to mean something entirely different than what it does now a days. This is an upscale restaurant with good prices and a great remodel that was done recently. I love several things on their menu and the two that I have had the most are their chopped salad (great!) and their pork... More

It is a little loud for me so it isn't a quiet romantic date night place but the food is delicious. I've been here for lunch, dinner, apps... It's always really good and the service is usually very good as well. The entrees and the sushi is great. Our sushi rice was a little warm but the tuna was great.... More
