    That's odd because we went in they were still building furniture and they said they open today

    We went for dinner here on Monday night. The food was excellent - fresh and came to the table hot. When we first walked in there was maybe two other tables occupied. By the time we had left the place was full almost to capacity. As the crowd got bigger the food came out slower and we had to remind our waiter that a few items hadn't been delivered. I've watched enough cooking shows to know that the first little while will be rough and they would have to work out the bugs service wise. I didn't hold it against them and still enjoyed our meal. Thumbs up from this reviewer despite the kinks in the service.

    Great to hear something positive for a change about a restaurant.

    I'm waiting for the usual people to come in bash the living crap out of it because they didn't shovel their driveway or paint their house with the meal.

    Some menu items that we tried are pretty common on menu's at other Asain restaurants in town. We tried the chicken wings, pad Thai, lemon grass chicken, General Tao chicken, pepper beef, sweet and sour Thai chicken, Japanese fried rice, popcorn chicken, pork cutlets to go along with the sushi rolls and other menu items people may not be familiar with.

    If you order off the menu, don't even think about tasting something from your partner's plate if he/she had the buffet. My friend wasn't hungry enough to have the buffet on Friday lunchtime so he ordered a small meal off the menu. The others at the table had the buffet and being nice people, offered him a bit of something he hadn't tried before. The waitress saw this and charged him for not only his meal, but a buffet meal too! His $7.00 lunch cost him $18.00!!! Not cool!! I can see charging someone if they were eating a whole bunch of stuff from the buffet - but one bite!! Come on!!!!

    I sense some soonet exaggeration here. I find it very hard to believe for one bite that occurred.

    How dare someone not pay for a buffett and then eat food from others plates. That waitress did the right thing. If you let one get away with it where will it end?

    isn't north 82 a steak house? IMO, I don't believe that a person would have been charged for two meals, me thinks this story is exaggerated, one bite from someone's plate wouldn't warrant it, but if everyone else was sharing and there were a few portions passed around, an extra charge should be called for.
