Reservations: Optional (takes reservations but not needed)
Suggested Items: Steamed Beef Ribs followed by Fried Rice
Other Amenities: The interior is very large, open and roomy. The building is pretty new, and it is quite clean. Modern, clean bathrooms are located inside. Parking is available behind the restaurant.
The service was very quick – they had a lot of waiters and waitresses. Almost too many, it seemed. The wait staff, while plentiful, seemed a little inexperienced – they appeared to be mostly high school students. But we had only two minor problems – they seated us in the non-smoking section without asking (Tuttle smokes), but didn’t hesitate to bring an ashtray when asked. We also had to ask twice to get the bottle of beer we ordered.
After dinner, there are quite a few bars nearby. At the Balsan main intersection, the four buildings on each corner each feature a top-floor “sky lounge”, some of them with live music. As Tuttle has pointed out in a previous blog posting, there are good singing rooms nearby as well.
