Had dinner there last night (on Mission in South Pasadena). Appetizers included lobster spring rolls (not greasy at all, good lobster filling), foie gras in a port wine reduction (my favorite) and ravioli filled with crab and shrimp (in a cream sauce, delicious). Of course for mains we had the fried whole catfish with ginger; as good as ever, again not greasy or overcooked. Navarro Gewurtztraminer was a perfect wine to accentuate the flavors. Desserts were not special... a banana and blueberry tart (I felt it was overbaked and dry) and a crisp wonton skin with poached pear sort of tart. Highly recommended.
