Good, relatively healthy, cheap food. The ingredients are fresh. Proximity to Seabright State Beach makes it a good place to pick up an instant picnic.

“sweet, earthy and totally delicious”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 19, 2007

Funky bo-ho Asian noodle joint with excellent creative cuisine, lots of vegetarian and vegan options and a sunny, fun vibe that seems utterly Californian. It's a family-friendly place for sure, and the melange of surfer hipsters, hemp-clad hippies, and families with little kids add to the effervescence of this laid-back yet efficient little spot.

The portions are hearty and filling without the oily aftertaste that sometimes creeps into inexpensive Asian cuisine. All in all a swell joint at the right price.

“Totally Santz Cruz”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 27, 2005

Very delicious and cheap noodles, noodle soups, and rice dishes with a Pan Asian Feel. All is available vegan/veg, or for a bit more money you can add meat/chicken or shrimp.

It's a bit off the beaten path, but the low prices, great food and groovy vibe make it worth finding!
