Had the salmon poke bowl with brown rice and salmon poke bowl with glass noodles. Reminded me of the poke bowls in Hawaii. The poke was very fresh and flavourful. Decent serving size and value for money also considering the fresh ingredients used. Very friendly customer service.

A tasty and filling meal. Even the smallest size is a filling portion of food. A variety of options and different textures. It’s totally worth spending extra for different items such as extra meat, quail eggs and shiitake mushrooms. The teas are also really nice and refreshing, I recommend the floral tea and the melon and lychee tea. 100% delicious.
