This is a fun place to eat. Lots of good starters that can easily make a meal if you want to try a lot of things -- the pork buns are well known, but the tofu and veggie ones were even better, I thought. Our party of six all had different dishes and everyone was happy: the ramen bowls (pork and chicken) had exceptional, rich broth; spring for the spice bomb for $1 and cautiously stir in as much of it as you want. There's a steak on the menu for people who don't like spices or heat or both. Vegetarians will do fine here, and vegans can get by -- they will vegan-ize dishes if asked. Nice cocktail list. Kids won't be happy here unless they already like this food a lot, as the spices are not timid and the pickling pronounced. It's got a concrete floor and high ceilings, enough that our party had to speak loudly to be heard across the table. Parking nearby.

This Thai fusion restaurant has not maintained the quality of food it had when it first opened. The dining room atmosphere is sort of like eating in a airport lobby. The tables are sticky die to how they are finished, but you get the feeling they are not clean. Service is below average for Decatur.

We visited this restaurant for its good recommendations on Yelp and Google. We ordered the ramen, congee, pork bun which were all nice, and shumai and pork dumplings which were a bit cold which were obviously frozen before steamed and served. Overall, foods were okay but service were good.

We had a great time here. Design and decor of the place is beautiful. We sat at the bar and the bartender was awesome. She had great recommendations. For apps, try the dumplings and the braised greens & kimchi. Both are so hearty and delicious. We had a tofu mapo veggie soup for our entree and the flavor was excellent (spicy). We added a poached egg, which made the meal. We could have done without the carrots that were added to this dish - too starchy and lacked flavor. Get a shot of soju to go along with your meal. We liked the plain versus the many flavored ones they make in house (way too sweet). Portions of both apps and entrees are big so share, share, share!

The cocktails and food were good, but the menu was a bit limited. it is conveniently located next to the Marriott Courtyard hotel, so will suffice for the weary traveler.
