+Ron Rossman Jr Yes some of them have that tilt shift photography ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tilt%E2%80%93shift_photography ) sort of feel.  I'm using google's camera with the lens blur feature ( http://www.guidingtech.com/28714/get-most-google-camera-lens-blur/ ).  It isn't as good as real bokeh but it helps make the subject stand out more in the photos.  Most of these cell phone cameras have a small aperture creating a huge depth of field so everything is in focus which creates cluttered images.  The blurring helps that somewhat...

In my opinion the atmosphere and service were nice but the food was bland. I would not recommend it.

I'd rather not go back. In my opinion the food was oily, sweet, salty and Americanized. I prefer more authentic flavorful food.
