This place is great. Super small, but has a nice atmosphere. Friendly service, delicious pork belly buns. I had a coconut curry with shrimp and my husband had the dragon bowl. This is a must for me on my repeat visits.

We ended up here after the original place we planned to eat lunch was closed for the week. My dad was skeptical to try something new, and my step mom is a vegetarian so they were big a little nervous. Mariya was able to answer...More

Quality ingredients, good preparation makes for good eating! Prices average $15 per item, but is very good value compared to other options near Duval (sister restaurant "The Cafe" across the street also excellent). If craving the best Asian food in town, this is it.
