Let’s start with the appetizers. I like surprises, so I ordered the Surprise Roll.

It’s a collection of the chef’s favorite sushi.

It was no surprise to find all of it fresh, perfectly rolled, and presented with perfection. This time, the chef served fresh tuna, Albacore, Yellowtail, Super White Tuna, and Salmon—all delectable!

And I couldn’t get Asian food without some hot and sour soup. There’s is original, and served piping hot!

Moving on to the main course, the menu boasts various options, catering to meat lovers and vegetarians alike. We tried their signature dish, the Dinner Bento Box, ordered with Panang Curry Tofu, Coconut Chicken, Egg Drop Soup, and a Garden salad. The chicken was succulent and cooked to perfection, and the Penang Curry Tofu was original and tasty with every bite.

For those looking for something a bit spicier, the Szechuan Beef is a must-try. 

But this time, I went with a traditional dish: the Ma-Po Tofu. It was everything I expected and more! The medium-firm tofu was drenched in a tasty sauce and placed in a bowl. It was tangy with a hint of lemongrass. Because it was so good, I could have sipped it like soup, but I chose to eat like a gentleman.
