We attended a birthday party and I was amazed at how great the service and the food was! If I lived in the area, I'd go back often! Kudos to the chefs and the wait staff for a great job!!

Went here with my wife on my day off. Her chose was to go to Penang which we haven't eaten at in a long time. The restaurant was busy but the troubling sign was that there were only 3 to 4 waitstaff working the entire restaurant and it was full to capacity. The other bad sign was that there were... More

We stopped here with family, who had recommended this option, and overall had a pretty good meal. The facility is in a strip mall and is fairly well maintained. Our server was attentive. The sesame chicken was excellent, as was the beef chow fun. The only weak link, for me, was the Pi Pa duck. Advertised as crispy, the skin... More

This place used to be ok, service was quick, food was good. But lately the food quality has gone down a bit. Service definitely has lagged recently - my orders take longer to arrive, sometimes they forget. What is bad is that they don't accept Amex.

wanted to try something new and different and found it here. food was spicey, but not over the top. the staff could be more helpful with the menu descriptions. portions were large and price was acceptable.

Came here for lunch after shopping and were pleasantly surprised! The menu has many interesting looking dishes, many of which I have not seen elsewhere and would like to go back to try. We had spicy lettuce wraps and Ma Po’s Tofu. Both were nicely seasoned. The decor is somewhat dark and the service slow, but I would still go... More

The restaurant is a decent place to have a good dinner. I ordered tufu seafood pot, the service portion is really big, enough for two people, and the taste is good too. Unlike some other Asian restaurants that turn to make every dish too oily and salty, I really enjoyed the dish. I will definitely come back again to try... More

Have tried the Malaysian cuisine there and is a decent place. Food was decent but kind of bland. Not much options for vegeterian-only folks Interiors look good. Service isn't that good. They were slow and not prompt. Ample parking

You will almost always get good food here but you might have terrible services waiting for that great food... But totally worth the wait

Have been there many times. The food is great. But the service is terrible. This time I went with several friends and at the end of the meal we asked to have the bill charged to three credit cards (6 of us eating). They said that they don't do that. A very rare practice indeed. I complained that there was... More
