“Neither Fish nor Fowl”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed April 29, 2012

This place tries to encompass Chinese, Japanese, Vietnamese, and Thai cuisines - and does none of them well. I started with Vietnamese rice paper rolls which instead of being rolls were sloppy bags with vegetables loosley packed inside. The flavor was OK, but the execution and presentation of the dish was poor. I followed with Thai crab rolls. This was really the pits, as they were so greasy that they were sitting in a puddle of grease in the plate, and after one bite I pushed the plate away and asked for the check. Whatever posses people to tackle multiple cuisines is beyond me, and in Cancun this happens often, with predictable results. If you want Thai food, stick to actual Thai restaurants and skip this one, who's reach surpasses its grasp.

“BAIT & SWITCH RIP OFF”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed May 29, 2011

I went to this asian restaurant several times and the food was good and reasonable. Last weekend I went with a friend and we ordered the combo and each had 2 glasses of wine. The menu clearly listed a glass of the house wine was $55 pesos each. The bill charged $120 pesos per glass. We both speak perfect Spanish so there was no misunderstanding. We showed the menu to the waiter with the listed price for the wine but he refused to correct the price on the bill. We asked to speak to the manager or owner and wew told that was not possible. We finally paid the wrongly packed bill and left and advised the staff we would not retun and would warn others of their deceitful practices
