The restaurant will serve the typical sushi rolls and Bento boxes that most are accustomed to at an Asian eatery, but Zheng has added some creations of his own like the New York Giants sushi roll. A wide variety of Asian tea is also available. Zheng and his wife brought in different tea sets they have collected to give customers a more authentic feel while dining.
“I want my customers to feel welcome when they are here,” said Zheng. “I want them to feel like they are walking into my house.”
Zheng said he hopes the restaurant will add to the Bethlehem community.
“I have a lot of good friends here, and am proud to be a part of this community,” he said.
