“Good food, good atmosphere.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 23, 2013

This is your average Chinese / Vietnamese type restaurant. The staff is pretty friendly and the food is good. I found the prices a bit high for what you get. We stayed at a place across the street and got a 10% discount for showing their business card. Hey, when you're touring California, any little bit helps. I would recommend this place if you're staying in the area and want to avoid driving all over the place.

“A nice alternative to the typical PG fare”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 8, 2013

A nice place with great service. The owner and chef are always about and will make sure everything is just right. Food is good although it is "Americanized" but prepared very well and of course the taste is not "Americanized". Menu has lots of options. If you want good Asian (Vietnamese/Chinese) in the Monterrey/PG area this is worth a look.

“Disappointed with this meal”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed June 4, 2013 via mobile

This was really mediocre Vietnamese food. We all agreed we would never go back. The vegetable plate had a slimy quality. The pad Thai was made with spaghetti rather than Asian noodles. The food was not piping hot. The jicama rolls, on the other hand, were delicious, and the peanut sauce was excellent. But all in all, the meal was very uninspired.

“Excellent food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2013

We enjoyed our dinner. We ordered crab rice, a prawn curry and ginger noodles. The service is a little slow, but then we were on a holiday.
