Very friendly place. Food was served quick and the hosts were great. Wish there were more tables as we struggled on bar chairs esp with a child.

Had the lunch combo with the BBQ pork. The service was good, the crispy roll was nice, but the meat was tough and dry. So with the rice it was just a dry meal. I had high expectations for this place because it looks cool and is two blocks from my house. Unfortunately I won't be coming back.

My wife and I ordered wonton soup which was warm and a noodle dish which was luke warm. They gladly gave us a new dish which was warm. Attentive wait staff, fun ambiance, beyond ordinary food. Very nice owner but I won't be back.

A small place with indoor and outdoor seating. I ordered the spring rolls and red thai curry. The spring rolls were delicious. They were fresh and full of flavour, it’s one large roll cut in two so can be shared. I don’t like spicy food but the server told me the curry was a level four and it was just... More

Went in for dinner on a Friday night. Service was outstanding. 3 people checked on me at all times. It is a small place but with a lot of character. I ordered spring rolls and tofu pad Thai which was cooked perfectly. Highly recommended

I would have to say that this restaurant is on my top for the best overall experience. Really surprised they don't have more reviews than they do! Missing out on some great food, service and atmosphere. We came here after a long day of walking in the San Diego Zoo. We tried a level 4 pad thai and level 6... More

There were four very different palate people and we all thoroughly enjoyed the food. Great portions and the staff was attentive and pleasant. Egg rolls - nice and crispy. Miso soup was a generous portion and nice chunks of tofu. Mix vegetables were cooked perfect, not mushy. House fried rice had lots of goodies in it including peas (which I... More

Good food, ate here only once, but the service was awesome, thanks. Amber. Everyone was very friendly... The food can be very spicy, so be warned... Good value, cute decor, easy walk from 5th Av and Market.
