I tried the eggplant curry with jackfruit which was bursting with delicious and hearty flavors. The lemongrass cooler was also excellent. I definitely recommend it!

We've eaten here many times over the years and it's always been excellent. Without burning your mouth you can have spicy dishes that are prepared to order. The soft sorbet is worth the whole visit, but don't miss the entrees!

I wouldnt recommend it. Food was okay, but the service was very poor. Had tot wait 10 minutes to even get a waiter at the table for drinks. He forgot the menu, so we had to wait again. After ordering drinks&food, the food came after another 30/45 minutes. Before the drinks... Fortunately the sun was shining and we had a... More

We were traveling through Ashland and decided to try this place out. We ate outdoors. Dog friendly. Started with eggrolls. Very good. Not greasy at all. A little light on the peanut sauce that came with it. For dinner, my wife had the chicken curry which she enjoyed. Lots of flavor. I had the spicy Bangkok Pork. Served in a... More

Sichuan beef noodles were spicy even though menu said mild and I told the waitress that I needed the dish mild. She offered to bring me something to cool the palette but then charged me for white rice which I later ordered. Chicken Teriyaki was acceptable to other people in party. Overall, poorest service of the trip.

...but this one needs more work to be among them. The menu is varied and enticing. We ordered four dishes. When they came they were just a little underwhelming. Not bad at all. But certainly not exceptional. And the wait staff could certainly use some training. Long wait - even for water. The place was very busy, so I may... More

Good food, great location near the Shakespeare theaters. Our favorite dishes are the Green Curry Prawns and the lettuce wraps (listed as a starter, but enough for a light dinner). Nice outdoor seating along Ashland creek.

My partner and I met friends there for lunch. There were 10 of us and we told them we were headed to a play. My partner and I love Asian fusion which we know well. I consider the food "Asian fusion" There was not a lot of people in the restaurant but the service was very slow. We ordered and... More

Reasonably priced, fresh ingredients and delicious Pan Asian food. Quick walk to theaters. Too hot to sit outside but the outdoor tables on the park looked very appealing.. Huge portions- maybe a bit bigger than necessary, actually.

The menu features Thai and Vietnamese influenced dishes, soups, rice bowls, and salads. Tough to choose, all looked delicious. I enjoyed the spicy pork rice dish (awesome! Ate only half, so enough to to split for two) and the hubster had the pho and was very pleased. Creative cocktail menu and outside seating make this a favorite place in Downtown... More
