Went here with two friends for a fun dinner out and we dig the atmosphere. It's a small restaurant and we liked the noise level. It wasn't too loud so we felt like we could talk, but we couldn't hear other people's conversations. Just chattering from other tables. Drinks: one friend got the Rabbit cocktail. It came with a little marzipan carrot that was too cute! You could taste hints of the aloe and it was very creamy! Other friend got a pink cocktail (can't remember which one) but it was DELICIOUS! Lemon-y and minty (my favorite flavor combos) Food: between the 3 of us we split the vegetable spring rolls, the tofu rice bowl, and the char siu big BAO. Spring rolls were nice and crispy and the sauce was good! The rice bowl was really fresh and I loved the seaweed salad on top! Not my favorite way to have tofu, I think it would have been better with a crispy tofu for texture contrast. The char siu BAO- WOW. So dang good!!! Char siu is barbecued pork and it was so flavorful! Those skinny fries too- HOT DANG. Perfectly seasoned!!
Had the Black Garlic burger, wings, and katsu bowl.... definitely a must try.  This place was addicting, the Bao sauce was incredible.  Would highly recommend anyone wanting an asian fusion.  10/10 Forsure will be back!
I came here one afternoon for a fairly late lunch ~3:00 PM and sat at a table by myself.   I ordered the Soft Shell Crab Bao and thought it was awesome!  Really large piece of soft shell crab and good aioli sauce on it that paired really well with the crispiness of the crab.  The bao was soft and fluffy as I expected it to be for a Asian Bao dish. I did the combo with the dumplings.  They were good but nothing too crazy or special and probably not worth the $5.00 for the extra dumplings.  The bao by itself was more than enough food.  They have lots of options and I would love to come again to try them all!
