We were able to eat on the front patio. All of our dishes were delicious (cream curry, flatbread (lavash), lamb curry and green curry). The servers were nice, and the restaurant was excellent.

Huge portions, great selections, and reasonable prices. This is truly a one-of-a-kind café. Try to get there at 5 when it opens for dinner - it fills up quickly. Also, try to eat outside - the ambience is great - we were treated to a great guitarist playing on the porch next door.

I've been here a couple of times when I visit Crested Butte. For Asian cuisine, this is always a good choice. The flavors here are innovative and authentic! I love the spring rolls and the fried rice. This time we ate on the patio and it was a great experience! The prices are rather high, but what isn't in Crested... More

We arrived at 4:40 and was told happy hour was in progress as seating for dinner does not begin until 5pm. We said that was fine that we would have a drink at the bar and asked if she would then seat us at 5 which she agreed. We were the only patrons in the restaurant. While the bartender, Brandon...

The service was slow but the food was good. Our appetizer, soup, and entree all arrived within minutes of each other, thus we could not enjoy each course. Request that your courses be served separately.

I went her with my three boys and loved it. I had the scallops special and one of my boys had the Pad Thai. Both were excellent and the service was great. It does take a while so if you are in a rush, perhaps not the best place. We loved it and will most definitely return.

This is an Asian restaurant with a small, almost cramped dining room and a tiny bar with a couple of seats. We were there for a late lunch and even though there were only 3 tables occupied the service was agonizingly slow. Slow to take your order, slow to get your order, slower to get your bill, even slower to... More

I waited at the table for 5-10 mins as I finally got the waitress' attention to place my order. She apologized then came back. I promptly ordered. When the food was delivered I asked for a knife. I waited another 10 mins and struggled to cut my food. I finally went to the bar and asked for a knife. The... More

We stopped her for lunch after the Fourth of July parade and were seated immediately outside. The host brought us water right away and the waitress stopped by shortly thereafter. It was a great place to sit and have lunch and enjoy watching people go by. We had the chicken curry and the tofu pad Thai. Both were excellent and... More
