“Good service but bland food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 22, 2012

Came here for lunch with a friend. The restaurant is clean and the servers are smiling. The food was actually pretty plain. I was expecting something more authentic! We had shrimp spring rolls, crab rangoon and calamari for appetizers. There were no flavors that stood out. I have to say I liked the decor of the restaurant better than the food.

“Great Food, friendly service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 10, 2012

I stopped in to get take out after the reviews on TripAdvisor. The staff was very friendly and brought me water without even asking. I ordered the Pad Thai with Chicken and the Yellow Curry Chicken. Both were excellent. The Pad Thai had tofu in it in addition to large chunks of chicken and was flavorful. The curry also had large chunks of chicken, potatoes and peppers. It was served with a type of grilled flat bread, a large scoop of rice, and a lettuce salad with ginger dress ing. The salad was basic but the dressing was excellent. It was enough food for several more lunches. The restaurant was in a strip mall but so what. I would definitely go back.

“Great food!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 9, 2012

I've never heard of this place until recently, as in this past month. Since then, I've eaten there about 9 or 10 times.. It's THAT good. The service is great, the employees are friendly, and the food tastes absolutely amazing. On top of all that, they have green tea ice cream, mango ice cream, and sweet sticky rice - How cool is that?! Try this place out, for sure (:

“superior asian fusion, inexpensive but impressive”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 2, 2012

We are from Honolulu and fishing friends told us to visit there..
Curry Lime Chicken Wings are unique and so tasteful as well as the
Deep Fried Calamri appetizers. 5-spices Duck Noodle Soup and
Almond Halibut are wonderfully prepared and presented. Servers are
knowledgeable and warm. Restaurant is clean with open kitchen and
cozy atmosphere. Will recommend to anyone.
