“Don't judge this book by its cover”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 16, 2013 via mobile

This place is definitely not a looker. It doesn't even smell that great on the inside! It was only my strong desire for Pho that kept me and my family there. That being said, I'm glad we stayed and ate. The food was good. The server was quite friendly. If I had to do it allover again, I would just order take out!

“best asian food in porterville!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 5, 2013

This place has the best asian food in portervile!!!
While the decor is basic at best, the food more than makes up for it
they have a mixture of laotian vietnamese and thai foods
and the only place here in town to find pho (is almost as good as matzo ball soup for colds!)
favorites of mine include the green curry with chicken, spicy fish filets and their angel wings
they do listen to diner's requests and suggestions, if for instance you wish an addition or substitution in a dish.

if you are in town and hankerin for some great asian food this is the place to try (oh and they have a nice little market next door also)

just be wary of orderng a large thai tea or coffee it comes in a massive big gulp size cup!
