i was impressed with the drinks and how knowledgeable our waitress was. you dont find this in an average chinese restaurant. the food was tasty and innovative, however, the overall dining experience was terrible. there were two parties going on in shojo: one surprise birthday party and one bachelorette party. they were all super drunk and INCREDIBLY LOUD! i had to yell to my friends at the top of my lungs when we were talking and they could even barely hear me. the loud noise gave me a major headache and i didnt want to stay at shojo any second longer. i dont think i will return unless i am with my own drunk party.
