This newly renovated place serves up some great Euro-Asian food with a Mexican twist. Very interesting and very good. The interior was very nice and the customer service was good. Prices are reasonable as well. Would recommend checking it out.

The inside looks straight out of a budget makeover show - kind of looks cool, but up close it's cheap & tacky. For example my pet peeve is there is this fake suede cloth material they've put over the booths, but since it is not tacked
