    Very impressed by this little Asian Fusion restaurant located unassumingly in a strip mall. The wild redhead and I arrived at 5pm, well in advance of the invading snowbirds.

    Service was quick, attentive, and professional. Drink and food orders were made.
    For the small plates we ordered Szechuan mini tacos (4) and crispy duck spring roll (2).

    On a side note, everything is delivered when it is ready, not when everything is ready. This is traditional Asian family. Get some extra plates, bowls, and get ready to share.

    The tacos were delightful with a back-end hit of szechuan and a slight sweetness. Two bites per taco!

    The crispy duck was absolutely grand. Very crispy with generous portions of luscious duck. The sauce was a perfect accompaniment.

    For large plates we ordered Drunken Samurai Udon, Aromatic Clay pot, and two extra bowls.

    The clay pot was succulent with pork, crispy green beans, and fresh lemongrass. The egg takes on all the flavors and is an absolute delight to cut into.

    The drunken udon shows major kudos to the chef for proper udon noodles, not some store bought inferior noodles. The veggies were crispy and tender. The flavors melded well among the seafood. I really didn't want to share this dish but I was threatened with a chopstick to my eye, so I relented!

    Bonus: Make sure the server brings over their homemade sesame peanut chili paste. Not too hot, but gives everything a wonderful little kick.

    All-in-all this is an amazing little Asian fusion joint. Some complain about the wine. Bull-hockey I say! Sake is the way to go.

    My only quibble and it's small, is the hot tea offering. I wish their green tea was served traditionally in a pot, and not unceremoniously in a bag.
