I think I've eaten everything on the menu! Sticky rice with all dishes is how it should be and easy to eat with chopsticks. Everything is well priced under $9 perfect for lunch or dinner. my personal favorites, spicy tuna don, terriyaki chicken, fiery chicken don and LOVE the potato salad....but I might be alone on that.

I don't think they take credit cards, so bring cash! Well worth it.
