This is a great hidden place in the neighborhood. I've lived in the area for years and just started going their last summer. They have a variety of Asian food from Chinese to Korean. The Korean beef is outstanding. The baked rice bowls are great...as well. You can't go wrong with what you order. The fresh fruit smoothies are to die for. This place is always packed. I will be a customer for life.More

Food is always great here, but the freezing environment has literally taken us outside to wait for our food until it was ready and served on our table. Many many customers have complained about this issue but nothing seems to be ever done about it....The food was super tasty, surely the best in the area. We always have the orange chicken or the sesame chicken with the delicious egg rolls and chicken fried rice, We never leave disappointed because the food is truly amazing! Now our favorite favorite thing here is also the Mango smoothie. It has been the best mango smoothie We have ever had. Overall, Do dine here but bring a sweater or a coat. =)More

This is clearly a place that loves its customers. With a brisk take out service complementing the cafe style eating area, there is lots of energy is the room and the staff does a good job of keeping up with its customers. Stopped by on...the way to my brother's to eat a late lunch and pick up carry-out for the evening. I could tell from the first bite why my brother thought nothing of having two meals from the same place. Oh, the food...had the chicken satay, very tasty; Viet springrolls, quite large but maybe too much lettuce...dipping sauce was good as was peanut sauce for the satay. BBQ pork appetizer was very tasty as was the enormous miso soup, lots of body and not too much salt!. Took home the Malay string beans, pepper and salt shrimp - no shells, and sesame fish...all of which were great, heated up well, and satisfied. Definitely well-priced and well-served. Go out of your way for a solid meal.More

I love this place. They have the best Smoothies and Thai Ice Coffee in town. My favorite dishes are the Spicy Basil Chicken and the Basil Chicken Chow fun. Friday's are crazy there so expect to wait for dishes. It is worth the wait.
