Katherine N., who was among the first Yelpers to review the new spot on August 2, wrote, "The menu is limited at this time, but they will expand their menu once they have their official grand opening soon. It's neat that you can sit around the kitchen and see the cooking take place. The staff is friendly!"
And Raina T. wrote, "I will be back! Even though it just opened and the menu was limited due to still being in their soft opening period, everything was awesome. ... The egg rolls were delicious. Crunchy and flavorful, especially when you dip them into the fish sauce that comes on the side."
