While there was plenty of food for the two of us, we left most of it on the table. The restaurant was almost completely empty, but service was horribly slow. It took nearly 30 minutes after ordering for one plate to arrive at the table. The second meal took another 5-7 minutes. I ordered Vegetable Curry with Tofu. I paid... More

While sightseeing in downtown St Louis, we stopped by here for an Asian dinner. Extensive, moderately priced menu. Service by Spencer was excellent. Really nice time. Would love to go back.

Not the greatest Asian food I have ever eaten but it wasn't the worst. The prices were average. Had the fried rice with pork and the garlic chicken wings. The fried rice had a little too much soy sauce in it and the chicken wing were a little too greasy. The waiter was very attentive and maybe a little too... More

They have a good buffet. Perfect place for hangovers and it is very close to the hotels. We walked there from the Crown Plaza.

The service was very slow. It wasn't crowded at all and I was there by myself. Once I actually was waited on and received my food, I really enjoyed my meal. Vietnamese noodle bowl was yummy, filling, and cheap. It's good if you have a lot of time.

we had low expectations since it serves all different kinds of asian foods but the food was actually very tasty. The servings were kind of small and it was a little expensive but each of the dishes we had were very good. We had the bok choy veggie dish, tofu pad thai and kung pow chicken and 2 different salads-... More

We did a takeout order from here one night when we were tired and just wanted to go back to the hotel. The staff was friendly and helpful. The food was very good, especially the Pho inspired soup.

Sis an I were staying at the Crowne Plaza next door and were looking for someplace close for dinner. The aroma was great walking in the door. I am an appetizer junkie, so I worked my way through (and shared some with sis) Calamari, Asian Lettuce Wraps and some Wonton Soup. All were quite good. Sis had Crab Rangoon and... More

I have been to this restaurant on the three occasions I have visited St Louis and all three occasions the food was superb. The place is never that busy which I cannot understand. Definitely put this place on your list to try out in St Louis but as with a lot of places downtown it is not open till late.

Thank mtcefc
