food is quite authentic and portions are very large, enough for two girls to share. service is nice and the bubble teas are absolutely amazing and the bubble tea menu selections are so huge it spans across two gigantic pages with pictures. place is clean.

Lots and lots of dished on the menu. However, there were many dishes that I wanted to order were not available. A lot of what they have on display at the window (food models), did not look like they were in their menu any more. I get this feeling that the quality is shifting.

This is a very casual, inexpensive, almost cafeteria-like restaurant. None of those things is a criticism - the place gets a 5 - because it excels at what it is. And I do mean excels - the consistent, speedy, quality of the enormous variety of dishes for the low price is dumbfounding. You can't get expensive restaurants to churn out... More

This place is overwhelming, they have more then 100 items in the menu, we try some of their must popular dishes and they were right on point, the food was great, the atmosphere was just perfect and needles to say that the portions were generous, Defenetly a paradise for a Chinese food lover! Highly recommended!

Thai is about the most popular Asian restaurant in Evanston. The food menu is extensive and good bubble drinks. The food has nice presentations and large portion, very good for the college students and family meal. The taste is ok, but the variety of the food choices made us come back again and again.

Wide selection of Asian meals and smoothies/bubble teas. I got the jackfruit drink and it was awesome. Food is really good ad value.

This is absolutely the best Chinese food in Evanston area. The service is super fast, friendly and the food you get is overly-portioned. There was nothing we did not find tasty. Everything looks delicious when brought to the table. This is a hot spot and sometimes can be crowded, which I find as a great sign for fabulous food. Must... More

This was by far our favorite place to eat during our month in Evanston. It was the kind of place that after the first time we all kept wanting to go back again and again. The drinks are so fun and delicious with all the different flavors and possible mix-ins. Our favorite was frozen watermelon with mango bobos. We had... More

The menu is very extensive. I was with a Chinese friend, who helped me choose. It would help to study the menu on line before visiting. I had shrimp, pork, eggs and vegetables over rice. It was very good and abundant.

Thank Ronald T
