“Atmosphere And Service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 24, 2013

Very nice atmosphere and service. I was served by a very nice young lady named "Kat" who was very nice and respectful. She was very knowledgeable about the menu choice and she seemed to care that I enjoyed my meal. The food was to the table very fast and at a very nice hot temperature. Later, the manger "PJ" came by to make sure that everything was okay. I could tell that he is very hands on when it comes to visiting other tables to ensure that the patrons were enjoying their meals and to see if there was anything else needed.

I ordered the Sesame Seed Chicken and it was very good and spicy. I was also given a "first timers" treat and it was very good as well. The water was refilled without even having to ask and Kat kept a watchful eye on the tables that she was working. That was a nice surprise considering that many other restaurant employees would come by either too often or not enough. Kat did an excellent job!

The atmosphere was very nice. The lights were dim, but not too dim. The place was VERY clean and spacious. I really enjoyed that because I didn't feel like anyone was too close, which made the meal much more enjoyable. I also liked the way that the cooking area was decorated with the overhead lights (very nice touch).

This restaurant serves Chinese/Thai dinners and you won't be disappointed. If you are lucky, you will have Kat and PJ working the night that you show up. They are professionals and they will make you feel welcomed.

“Healthy, tasty food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 5, 2013 via mobile

We had a good meal - the service was very quick - "Mario G" our server looked after us well. A good place to go if you want decent food in a hurry or if you want a night out with a group of friends.
