I have never experienced something quite so bad! How can you mess up Chicken Satay! The wait was outrageous! The owner should have been there to help the poor girl in the front who was trying her best to hold down the fort!

My friends and I were lured in by the delicious, imaginative menu and were not disappointed. This small cafe has a short but excellend wine menu and a wonderful pan-asian food menu. We tried an appetizer, soup, salad, main course, and dessert, so we got a thorough experience of the food served. Everything tasted fresh, authentic, and delicious. I especially... More

Helpful friendly staff and amazing genuine Asian fusion food. Large menu to choose from we had squid and peanut satay to start. Huge portions and nice hot green tea.

Took our friend out to dinner for her 90th birthday. She is normally a picky eater. She loved it we loved it. Staff came out to sing her a happy birthday. Maybe the reviewers that talked about the unfriendly serve were at a different restaurant

There is not much of a choice of good eats in Cambria but this place makes up for it. Asian fusion, run by an efficient lady from Singapore. Tasty, cosy, good choice, and good value.

We ate here about four years ago and enjoyed it so much we returned that week. Forward to June '14 p, we are visiting Cambria again and decide to do take-out. Absolutely awful! Cold, pasty egg rolls. Pad Thai mush. One dish so spicy it was in edible. For the price we paid we should have just taken it all... More

The creative use of fresh vegetables and fruit with traditional Asian dishes was a real delight. Where else would you get lightly sauteed brussels sprouts, barely steamed carrots, and fresh halved apricots complimenting Korean spareribs on a bed of noodles with sides of slaw and freshly grated horseradish? They cook to order, so sit back and enjoy your company while... More

At Wild Ginger, we had a lovely Singaporean server who had lived in Cambria for 4 years. We had one green papaya salad with shrimp (a daily special) and one large ($8.50/ 16 oz.) soup of the day which was curried butternut squash. The salad had nice tasting fresh herbs and was very good. The soup was very tasty and... More

I was so surprised to see so many bad reviews. We stopped for lunch and had an amazing meal. Yes, it was pricey. Yes, the service was a bit slow but the waitress was very pleasant and the food was worth waiting for. My husband had the tom Kha soup and loved it although for me it would have been... More

It has been several years since my wife and I dined here, and we hoped the quality of food and presentation had improved. We were disappointed. Dishes for two came to $40. Portions were small, dry and relatively tasteless compared to meals in Bangkok and Vietnam. Entrees are dominated by veggies and sliced fruit. "Where's the beef" applies here. The... More
