I had lunch there yesterday, and I will never go back.

Most of the food was obviously not prepared at the restaurant. Many iterms were of the prepackaged variety, which cooks in the back simply threw in the fryer or oven. Some of it was literally tasteless. The tempura was ok but the place has little turnover so most of the food just sits there for hours and is never replaced. The coconut shrimp was tasty, but was another prepackaged processed food ; they simply took shrimp balls and sank them in sweet coconut sauce. The crab cakes and sauteed bok choy were among the only edible, enjoyable offerings, but I could have bought my own ready-made crab cakes and made them at home!! The dumplings were decent in flavor, but again - they sit so long that the wrapping became tough and unplesant.

If you know sushi - STAY AWAY!!! The rice was gummy and the fish was not super-fresh. No sashimi, just rolls. I had high hopes for a tempura roll, but again - the food sits there too long to be edible. I figured 12:15 was a good time for a buffet - the food is new and fresh and most of the offerings are out by that time. NOT HERE!

I'll be shocked if this place stays open 6 more months. If it does, I would not be surprised to find out that it's a cover for an Asian mob. It's that bad. The offering of such subpar food is an insult.
