We have been there twice this year, the recent dine-in was 2 weeks ago. Would recommend their special dish - Diving fish (spicy). It could be cooked in non-spicy sauce too. We enjoyed it as the sliced fillets are cooked so tender and so tasty...More

Cooking Girl has awesome spicy food, made with organic ingredients and free from MSG. If you don't order a spicy dish, make sure to order the house hot sauce. Awesome if you like spice: not just hot, TASTY hot. The managers are not from around...More
