The food is very good and the delivery usually arrives in less then 20 minutes so I really can't complain. The delivery guys are always friendly until you give them their tip and then they walk away as if you have insulted there mother no matter how much you give them. So expect to get good food quickly, but don't expect a thank you after handing over the tip.

We have been here before a few times and the food was OK - nothing special but acceptable for what the place is. Afterall when they have hundreds of dishes on the menu and claim to do Japanese, Thai, Chineses and even Korean food, you know it's not going to be wonderful and you take it on its own terms. But there are limits. Our latest visit was a disaster - the food was virtually inedible and we ate almost nothing of it. A so-called spicy chicken dish which was completely tasteless, a stir-fry noodle dish where the noodles were not even cooked and the beef was such cheap quality meat that it was like chewing on a rubber band. When we complained they refused to accept there could be anything possibly wrong with their food. A restaurant where they can't even cook noodles? Never, ever again.

Since the unfortunate closing of Ying Cheng, Ive been looking for a replacement. I usually get from 88 noodle but I must admit im not sold yet. So I went with the reviews on Ivy's Cafe and I am very disappointed. The sesame chicken was dry, the sweet and sour pork was soggy and the roast pork buns were over cooked. I would recommend that no one ventures to Ivy's Cafe to please their palate of Chinese food.

This is the place we can' t stop coming to for already a few years. Every single friend we brought with us was happy. They have a very good balance of quality and price, good fish, nice rolls (especially the special rolls selection), fast and friendly service/ Of course you could find some places with nicer design and better chef, like Nobu or Megu, but be ready to pay four times more at least.

as I walked to the park I saw this place, I said to myself keep it in mind because I saw it had japanese and chinese food which I love (when it's good). coming back from the park my friend and I went to get some dinner and we were on our way to indian but as we passed this place I mentioned I saw it (since we both like either japanese and/or chinese) and after seeing they have bubble tea (which I didn't notice before) we went right on in. I was happy -happy when my bubble tea came and then my wonderful noodle and chicken soup. the salad with ginger dressing was good too, good size for the price. the bubble tea was delicious (taro is my favorite so far). the soup was a nice big bowl and what I liked about it is there were a nice amount of fresh veggies in it too. the soup broth was quite nice, the udon noodles my favorite were plenty and just enough chicken to satifsfy. She had sushi and enjoyed it very much, came with a small salad too. we both said we are coming back and since I live on the upper west I know I'll be stopping in again for lunch and/or dinner when I"m in the area. the service was good too, pleasant, accomondating and polite. definitly recommend it as a local stop for japanese and chinese, and they have some tai as well. try some bubble tea too. You can request it without out the tapioca balls as I do or if you like those then just order as is. they also have the bubble teas without milk, and both can come hot or cold. yum yum I'll have try the japanese too.

A friend of mine took me there for the first time ,and i'd never had sushi before.When I walked in the atmostphere was so pleasant,and the people was so kind.After receiving my dish of eel and avacado roll I was hooked! It was so delicious and very cheap and the next day I was there again for their delicious sushi and chinese food.
