Terrible....worst chinese and sushi ever! My first time will be my last. Ordered a duck and come out like skin and bones. NO MEAT! Nothing compared to the westheimer location. Westheimer location is million times better! No wonder...after seeing some post...downtown is not related to Westheimer.
Best Chinese in Downtown! – Bad service and rude managers. Food is not fresh and serve lukewarm.
Food is over priced, small portion, not fresh, and the owner Bill seems to be drunk every night and hitting on my wife! (every visit) Do not sit on the sushi area! I ate there from time to time because I love the one on westheimer location. I stopped going to the downtown location because I found a roach in my food. I told the manager and she insist that I have to pay for it eventhough I only took a bite. I payed my bill and left and never return. I work in downtown and I rather eat somewhere else.Now I only go to the westheimer location. The staff and manager is a lot more hospitable and food portion is bigger, cheaper and fresh! My fav will always be the Yao shrimp! Gotta try....
WE love LT! – Lt Rocks! He is our server everything we eats there. He is funny, sometimes slow but very kind. Sushi is the best and it's a lot better than Benihana! We are huge sushi fan! We always order 3 kinds sahsimi and the Hot mama roll. Yao's Roll is the best!
Loves the place – I am a regular at the restaurant. It's hard to find quality chinese food in downtown. The chinese and sushi is exceptional. I always go for the Yao's Roll ( you will fall in love with this entree) and the Emperor Seafoof fried Rice. The manager Alisa Recommended to us and we loved it! Our server David was great! He is very friendly and quick to response to our needs. We will definetly be back!
I wont be in a hurry back here!!! – I was disappointed when I visited this restaurant last Saturday night. The restaurant is in a prime location, but inside, it looks like an upscale McDonalds.
The waiter was not very attentive and did not take care of our table very well.
The food was well below par and was not what I expected for the price we paid.
Also, the restaurant did not have bottled water!!!
I will not be going back again.
