Expensive but good food and nice atmosphere

The food-runner should have been our server as he was more engaged and great at customer service - I hope he gets a promotion! The food was quite expensive ($20+ entrees), but the blackened tofu and gado gado was delicious. Since Telluride is so expensive the prices were on par, though they should... read more

Delicious dinner of small plates - Highly recommend Kale salad, any of the potstickers, chile fried calamari and shrimp. Perfect serving size.Greeted by incredibly friendly hostess, waitstaff was attentive and fun, and the tall line-cook with the pony tail is adorable. Will go back again.

Honga's old restaurant was Telluride's best. Intimate, high energy, great food, great service. Her new restaurant lacks that combination. The food is still good. Great bar. Good location on the main street.

had a really great time with our group! Our server was really knowledgable and our food was out of this world! The menu is intimidating, but she guided us through it and we enjoyed sharing it all. Will be back! Try the calamari and shrimp! Sushi and share dishes were all fun!

We really appreciated the originality and the variety of the different dishes with Asian backgrounds to share or to eat yourself, from Vietnamese to Japanese to Thai. For an evening meal it was a pleasant change from the steak, cheese and bread /dough of other eateries in town. The service was excellent, the salmon and... More

We all had a fabulous meal here - interesting dishes and good service! The salmon was amazing and our 15 year old adored the pad Thai. Would recommend eating here.

Even though the place was packed and a line of people waiting for tables they were able to sit us at the bar. Servise was amazing and the food was delicious. Must try the honey shrimp for an appetizer!
