Had a disappointing meal at this very trendy and very popular "Asian Fusion" restaurant in Greenwich last weekend. In fairness to the restaurant, I was with someone who does not tolerate spicy food very well and since the food is served in a manner to be shared, our choices on the menu were very limited. An appetizer of steamed shrimp dumplings with ponzu was inoffensive but tasteless. Black bass with miso (a special)was very good and the highlight of the meal. Peking duck was flabby and served with an odd brown sauce. A side order of "five vegetable" fried rice was awful, with an overdose of soy sauce and swimming in grease. Still, the place is very popular, with an hour and a half wait for a table when we left at 8:30.In my opinion, one could do much better at a local Chinese restaurant at less than half the cost.
