We have not enjoyed a meal out like this one ever. We ordered the special - Crunchy Chowmein. Mine was topped with chicken and my husband's was topped... More

Tasty food, great atmosphere! We had wonton soup (which had dumplings with both shrimp and pork in them :D ), spring rolls and some awesome prawn spring roll dish. It was all super tasty, and our waiter was amusing and knowledgeable which always makes things better!

great curry, great food that starts with amazingly good quality produce and fantastic seafood cooked to perfection. Start with the Mekong mussels appetizer then you must try the scallops, huge, 'sweet as a nut' and cooked just right. Veggies all cooked to a turn. great place for friends and family to gather

Highly recommend the Prawn Curry. The restaurant did have a strong odour of a cleaning product, carpet cleaning, spray??.. we had to move tables and considered take out, glad we stayed for the food.. hot pan was a little lacking on the sauce though.

Had a delicious beef Pho soup for lunch at a reasonable price, which was one of four specials. My friend had a chicken curry with rice off the menu, that she thought was very meaty and flavourful. I noticed the ramp to get to the door, and good parking beside the restaurant so it is a great place to go... More

We love this little eatery in Parksville. The owners are very accommodating and understanding of our food allergies. We have never had a meal we didn't thoroughly enjoy.

The food is great. The menu is extensive. The service fast and courteous. There are several section to this Restaraunt that allow the feeling of privacy. Try the specials and plan on having take home if you do. Great value food and service.

This was #4 on the list and the other places were closed or full. A group of 14 of us piled in and we were greeted with great service. We all ordered a variety of different dishes, from vegetarian to seafood, and it was all excellent. Fresh vegetables, clean rice and noodles, and tender chicken and beef. Appetizers came in... More
