About Us


Over 20 years experience

Located in downtown San Jose for over 20 years, chef/owner Jennifer continues family tradition by offering generous portions of authentic cuisine.  Recently moving the fine-dining restaurant from Race Street to the art district of downtown; we are now located inside the SoFA Market on 1st street. Our Urban Eatery is one of the finest in all of Silicon Valley. 

Order your favorites and sit anywhere. Seating is first come, first serve in a community dining area at the market. Outdoor front patio is dog friendly!
