Great outside setup. Apps were great, dumplings and filet spring rolls. Most of the main courses were very good, duck special and the short rib tacos. The scallop dish contained only 3 medium size scallops that were OK and the rice was bland. The short rib tortellini was OK, but too dense and doughy.
