I have eaten here several times. Food has always been good and is clean, and the waiters/waitresses are polite. Service is usually slow but I prefer that if the food is worth the wait, which I think it is to some degree. To me it seems classier than many of the Asian restaurants in the area. It is not a...

I hate to write bad restaurant reviews. And the place looks nice, so I wanted to like it..but just couldn't. We like Thai & since it's on the menu, & we live about 5 miles from this restaurant, decided to give it a try. First, the service is bad. That seems to be a common theme in the negative reviews....

At 6pm we had the place almost all to ourselves. Ordered the coconut shrimp (in creamy sauce over vegetables) with wonton soup. Soup was very good, with three delicious wontons. The shrimp arrived looking great, 8 large butterflied shrimp golden brown sitting atop an array of vegetables. A side bowl of creamy sauce and bowl of steamed rice came with.... More

While on a road trip we wanted a quick on/off interstate. We used their online app to order and it was very easy to use. The restaurant is very clean. The best part, was that the entrees, and sushi where excellent and enjoyed by all.

Workday lunch visit. The staff was friendly but a bit slow. It took nearly 5 min for someone to see I had walked in and then seat me. The menu offered a variety of lunch special choices, at a very reasonable price and generous portions for the quality. The atmosphere and decor were nice. The sesame chicken was drowning in... More

We ate here two nights running, because my granddaughter loved the 'plain lo mien' the first evening, I had a Thai Curry that was very good, and we shared an order of Crab Rangoon that was very light and delicious. The service was okay. Second night, whole different story... service was awful (took way too long to get my little... More

We really enjoyed our meals. Had the seafood sizzler, spicy shrimp and lo-mien for entrees and a couple of sushi rolls and sashimi, dumplings and seaweed salad for appetizers. We all enjoyed and would go back if we are ever in the area

Had a late lunch with my wife. Surprised the small amount of people in the restaurant. My wife had the General Tso,s chicken. She liked it very much. I started with a California roll. Had Pad Thai for my main course. Clean restaurant. Pleasant service. Good food. We will be back.
