My wife and I came here just around 6:00PM on a Friday. Normally I wouldn't approach a place at that day and time but BB was essentially empty!

They very recently remodeled and changed the menu - the on-line menu was not up-to-date.

The service was extremely attentive and very timely in all aspects.

My wife was running a little late (Southside Blvd - 'nuff said) so I started with an Organic Mixed Greens Salad. There were a few noodles in it as a bonus and work done on the carrots - well, they were cut to about the diameter of the thin noodles.

She had an appetizer of 5 spring rolls and I had 3 pork egg rolls. Both came with a very flavorful Thai-style duck sauce.

For the main course she had 4 lamb chops with Bok Choy and white rice. I had a Cre-Asian (Create your own bowl) of fried rice, chicken, carrots, cabbage, and green peppers, I also added a small bowl of vegetable fried rice to share.

All of the main courses were excellent; the lamb and chicken were very tender and the fried rice was not too heavy on the soy sauce but I didn't need to add any either (none was sitting around on the tables).

The downside was the price. For the above with a decent tip the total was $89.00 (She had one beer).

Still, for an occasional, treat-yourself-special, this is definitely a superior place to go.

This restaurant wins in every aspect. The menu items are very different and unique. You will be amazed by the creativity of this cuisine. The atmosphere is very calm and relaxing. Not loud at all. Make sure you read the menu, you will get a good laugh at the clever descriptions on the menu! ;) I recommend trying the shrimp and grits. It's a different twist if you like that dish. Also try the appetizer sampler. It gives you a taste of a few different appetizers they serve because there's too many good items to choose just one!

I could not be more pleased with the service and food we had at this restaurant. Heather provided us with phenomenal service and even gifted us with a free dessert at the end of our meal. The food was delicious and nice change from the typical asian hibachi type restaurants. The chef puts a lot of pride and though into his dishes, and it shows. I recommend this place to anyone in the North Florida/South Georgia area.

We made reservations for this restaurant and were seated, waited on, greeted by the chef, and served our meal. Our waitress was Samantha..she often asked to make sure our food was to our liking. I ordered a cre-Asian meal with beef...delicious! There was enough food, nicely prepared so as to not leave over-full..will definitely return..many of those that were seated had been often based on the conversations with the chef..

Had dinner last night with friends I chose the red curry chicken stirfry one of the best meals I've had in a Cantonese restaurant. The ambience is wonderful, even with white tablecloth's, I highly recommend.
