DIdn't know what to expect since this was our first time here. Inside was what I would consider typical decor for this kind of restaurant. Service was fairly good...females were pretty busy chatting in their native tongue with each other & the service maybe could of been a little more prompt. BUT, the food made up for it. I took...

I love this spot. Authentic, charming, d to the lish. The plates are huge, so it seems like I always take home two or three portions of leftovers. You can't go wrong with chicken pad Thai. There's a good selection of wine, as well.

I'm had the chicken pad thai and it was delicious -- especially with the hot sauce they offer out on the tables. The appetizer was also great, some sort of shrimp roll that my brother ordered. The server was superior in her service and kindness. Yes, the building may make people second guess the place but give it a try.... More

Ordered the vegetable delight and it stated it was in a brown sauce, but it should state soy sauce. I took three bites and couldn't eat anymore because it was so salty. I told the cashier and she said, "Okay, I'll tell him." That's eat, and charged us full price. My dinning companion ordered the Thai fried rice and he... More

If you judge this restaurant by its exterior, that will be your loss. Prompt service, greeted as soon as I walked in. Clean, pleasant interior. Very neat, organized. Fresh shrimp rolls lived up to their name. Pad see ewe was a tasty generous portion. No complaints at all. I will definitely return.

I was not impressed. Had Rangoon crab dumplings for starter and they showed up real quick....there's no way they were freshly cooked, just reheated. And not very tasty. Then basil pork for dinner, and I ordered it mild I think, I know I ordered it 2 on a scale of 1 to 4. Mild?!? It was way hot, to the... More

This is my good reliable place when doing in business in Joplin for a meal. Whether it be for lunch break (they have their lunch specials), unwinding with friends, or the end of a long tiring day of overtime work. The food is consistently good, the ingredients fresh, and the service is friendly without being too in-your-face. The place is... More

I agree with the other reviewers who suggest it isn't much to look at from the outside--just a little box building with a big noodle-bowl sculpture out front. The decor and atmosphere inside isn't particularly special, either, though it is pleasant. But the noodle selection is great, and there were many different options here. I would call it pan-asian (I... More

Agree the building and interior aren't anything to rave about but the food and service is very good. I tried the mango sticky rice for dessert and loved it. There's a large selection and something for everyone's taste.
