Mengyao X., who was among the first Yelpers to review the new spot on Jan. 21, wrote, "Authentic and juicy. Love the crab legs. The sauce is a little bit a spicy to me, but built up the overall flavor. The service is attentive and considerate."
Yelper Michael O. added, “Tried the coconut shrimp, which was served very fresh and hot with remoulade sauce. Also had lobster bisque, which was delicious and loaded with large chunks of lobster. Also on the menu were fried oysters, which were crispy and flavorful."
