Staying in Carlisle for the night and decided last minute to take a trip into HBG for dinner. A quick Google search pulled up this restaurant. We chose it pretty randomly from the list. It was a Tuesday night so there was no problem getting a table. This place was so beyond our expectations!!! As soon as we walked in, we loved it. The decor is so cool with the curved super high backed booths. Dark enough to make the meal feel special, and cool vibe music playing. But the food is what really made it stand out. We got the edamame ravioli as a starter. SO delicious!!!! The pasta was so light and delicate and it was sitting in a soy saucy liquid. I got the salmon which was the special that day and my husband got the filet lo mein. All three were such flavor explosions. And, it was still happy hour when we arrived so we got martinis for $6.00 each!!!!
Definitely go here, if you get the chance. You will NOT be disappointed.

Made last minute reservations. Everyone was very welcoming when our table of 4 arrived. Cool and modern decor. The food was delish. I am so so picky about calamari, these place rocks it. It's not your typical bread coated rubber rings with jarred sauce. This is fresh tender calamari with an asian style sauce and a really good dipping sauce. Our server John was a great server. Very attentive without being intrusive. Definitely reccomend.

Two visits within a month and the food, and service by Zineb was perfecto! The Chilean sea bass was excellent....again, and my crab cake was superb, especially the accompanying veggies....

Stopped in with friends for a Holiday Drink. Service was great. They had a good cocktail selection and were willing to make anything we wanted. Will be back again.
