Great place to eat before a play

We went here with our cousins based on their recommendation before going to a play. The restaurant is located a short walk from the theaters. We wanted something light before the play, and found the menu offered several good choices. It was almost as if they knew we were going to the play... read more

Wonderfully fresh Asian salads and spring rolls. Divine ahi tuna. Welcoming and effective staff. Delightful to sit near the creek in a cooler setting on a warm day.

We had 2 different dishes which were neither terrific nor plentiful. Lovely setting however, along the creek & near the park & Shakespeare.

Creative, different, crazy flavorful Asian food. We shared the shaking beef dish and some bibimbap type dish that comes baked in a clay bowl. Rice in the bottom of the dish is crispy on the outside, soft inside. That was topped with julienne veggies, bok choy, shitake mushroom and kimchi and fried egg. A small dish of chili sauce meat...

The restaurant is located right across from Lithia Park. The setting is one of the best ever. Wish the food had been! The staff was very friendly and efficient. I ordered tangerine chicken. Unfortunately it was very greasy, deep fried. The rice was good, and so was the tea. I would probably dine here again because of the setting, but... More

Let me start by saying that make a mean fried rice and know when it is prepared well. Tonight I had the Korean Fried Rice special and it was prepared perfectly and delicious. My wife had the Green Curry with Prawns bowl. She said it was delicious as well, but wished the prawns tails had been removed. The service was... More

The atmosphere is beautiful, both inside and out. The servers were quick, efficient and friendly. Where I got lost was the food. I had duck pad-thai and the dish was greasy and didn't taste good. The presentation was beautiful but the food was disappointing. With many good food options in Ashland. For the cost-conscious diner, I would avoid this place.... More

This is a nice Asian restaurant on the plaza in downtown Ashland. The waitstaff is friendly and efficient. The food was good, but I was disappointed that they had changed the menu and taken off my favorite peanut noodle salad with Ahi tuna, which is what we went there for. I had green curry prawns instead, which was good. The... More

Went here with large group recently. The food was very good. I had an Asian inspired fish and sweet potato fries. Others had fried noodles, or pot stickers, or pho. The room is large with a great view of Lithia Park. Right in the action, also close to the theaters. Service was friendly. We were there nearly two hours. And... More

I'm a sucker for great ambience, which this place has - bright and airy with plenty of orange pop as accent! My travel companions prioritize good food over ambience, so fortunately this place fit the bill for all of us. We enjoyed the chicken lettuce wraps, ginger fried rice, Korean tacos special, and the cashew chicken. Everything had terrific flavor... More
