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

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

We ended up here for dinner on our last night in Ashland. After perusing menus all over town and seeing steak for $35.00 and up everywhere else, we decided to eat here. I had had lunch here a year ago, and remembered it being very good. He had the steak, which was GREAT -- cooked to perfection. We ordered egg... More

The food was served piping hot, but there were no cashews in the cashew chicken! The pad Thai noodles were too sweet (and we order them in every Thai restaurant). Their entrées are not conducive to sharing with several people. They are meant to be ordered and consumed individually, and we prefer to share several dishes with several people.

I always get the calamari appetizer and it is really good (crispy, not chewy). I like the lemongrass cooler, but it is a bit sweet. Love eating good food while sitting by the creek in beautiful Ashland.
