Usually only do take out but love it!

My husband and I frequently get take out from here more in the winter when we don't want greasy Chinese food but still interested in Asian fare. It's really yummy. If you want it spicy make sure you really ask for it because they keep everything with no heat even if it says spicy (most people I... read more

Cannot say enough good things about this place. Consistency and excellent service is what makes this place out familys' go to restaurant. Please try the Thai basil fried rice. The Saigon beef, coconut shrimp, and curry noodle soup are also exquisite. Reasonable price be friendly staff.

It's a good place to dine. The staff is courteous and efficient. The owner is usually present in person. The food is good. It's pack most of the time which gives you an idea that all these people couldn't be wrong. Ample parking space and close to the New Bridge Landing station of the NJ Transit train system. I have...

I'm not really sure what to write to be honest. The food was very average. I liked that there were some different choices then typical on the menu. However, the food came out so surprisingly quick it was impossible it was prepared fresh. The service was good and prompt. They gave tea when I was seated which was nice. The... More

I eat here often mostly take out as it is around the corner from my house. Pad Thai, Drunk Noodles and Pad See Ew are all very good. I have known the owner for years, as she used to own a Chinese restaurant at this same location years ago. She is always there making sure everything is up to snuff.

I really do enjoy this nice little restaurant near the Cherry Hill station in River Edge, NJ. Good " Fusion-Asian" selections, all very tasty, with generous portions. Service is quick and friendly. All reasonably priced. You MUST have the pineapple egg rolls! Order them for dessert.

Fiod is pricy for the low quality. Pad Thai had dry and zero taste. I'm not going back there. I've had better tasting pad Thai, not as expensive - unfortunately they're closed on Mondays.

Total rip off pricing and poor food - worst beef rendang I've ever eaten my gosh. Satay was ok, roti was hard and curry sauce was like water and oil. Saigon beef was soggy and horrible. Fried basil rice was bland and tasteless. Don't waste your time, stomach or money on this!
