I came here for the first time for a birthday dinner and it was fabulous. The atmosphere and the aura is really nice and calm. I have heard nothing but such great comments about this place so I came with high expectations. The food really was fantastic! The portions looked small at first but ended... read more

Elegant surroundings. We loved the Lemon Grass Margarita - delicate and pretty. Husband had Kung Pao Chicken and I had Kung Pao Tofu (OK, so we were tired and hungry and didn't venture from our comfort zone.) Both were very good. Next time we visit Corpus, I'd like to try several of the appetizers. Entrees average between $15 and $25.

The Com Bi is unexpectedly mild at first bite, but the flavors develop as you go. You begin to realize that smoky char on the sliced pork and you enjoy the texture of the shredded pork. The green onions bring a necessary freshness to the dish, while the perfectly cook egg on top provides a delightful sauce. This dish was... More

Found ad in tourist publication on way to museums. Very pleasant lunch. Fried broccoli appetizer recommended by waiter was delicious. Great way to have vegetables. Medley entree full of scallops, shorimp, beef, pork & calamari. Good food. Nice decor.

This place has the best roasted chicken dish I have ever eaten. It is crunchy on the outside but nice and tender on the inside. The mariniade is so delectable, I wish I had the recipe. So much food, feeds 2 at least.

I expected a little hole in the wall with some neat Vietnamese dishes (I obviously didn't read any reviews), but I went along with the group because several said the food was very good. The place is beautiful and very well run. Our knowledgeable and efficient waiter, David, recommended some spring rolls and baby back ribs served flambé. Delicious! He... More

Gorgeous restaurant a block away from the beach. The decoration is elegant and the setting just complements for a great dinning experience. Didn't get to try a lot, as I just had dinner with my family, but couldn't control myself and being just a block away from an Oriental restaurant and not to try it. Ordered my testing regular a...

I love this place! The food is very fresh and really really good. This restaurant is owned and operated by one family. All of the recipes are old family recipes. The atmosphere is nice and there is a full bar with speciality drinks. The specials menu changes frequently so you have a nice variety if you are a regular there.... More

We were told by several people that this was one of the best spots in Corpus Christi for dinner, so we tried it out. First of all on a Saturday night at 6 pm you should have more than 3 tables in the restaurant and no one at the bar. Our so called server wasn't a server at all he... More
