After reading some of the reviews raving about the food here we decided to pop in for lunch. It was fairly busy for a small restaurant, but it was not slammed with customers. Took longer than it should have for us to order and when the food arrived it was fairly disappointing. Ordered the lunch special chicken and broccoli and... More

The owner and cook also was our host. He was fun and interesting chatting with us about the food and the history of the other restaurants in the area. The food was wonderfully fresh and not over sweet. The tea was light cool. Over all it was a great quiet dating place with wonderful food.

This place is ran by an Asian couple. The husband is an amazing cook and the meals are delicious. Prices, especially during lunch, are ridiculously affordable. One low rating I saw on here rated Wendy's 4 stars, so I assume they have no taste in what good food is all about. The atmosphere leaves a bit to be desired but... More

When we moved to the area some friends suggested this place as the best Chinese/Asian/American place in town. So, I took my wife there for our anniversary lunch. It was such a waste. I usually get the house fried rice at new places until I know how good they are, because who really messed up fried rice? This place, evidently.... More

So here's the deal: The restaurant atmoshere isn't anything to write home about - but the food... well it is. For me it's the Goi Cuon (pronounced Goy Coon, aka fresh spring rolls) to start off with - then the Phad kee mao (chicken, level 3). They know me so well I don't even have to order they just start...

We'd visited Chehalis many times and decided to give this place a try. It was very good! We had a sliced bbq pork appetizer with some hot mustard and another tasty sauce. We each ordered a chicken entree and they were all good with the General Sao (?) maybe the favorite if it was the spicy one. Don't be afraid... More

My wife and I have eaten here frequently; it is our favorite spot when visiting Chehalis. The food is always freshly prepared and delicious. Make it as hot as you'd like, from zero to 5 stars. Wife likes no heat, I like it in the middle. This is a family-run restaurant; the cook is from Vietnam and does a very... More

We tried the Pad Kee Mao and a sizzling dish with chicken, shrimp and scallops. GREAT! The staff was very friendly and attentive!

What a find. Just off the highway and past the Arco station to little family restaurant serving up Asian dishes. Fast, delicious at a fair price. A busy place.......says it all. What a nice change from the usual names along the highways. Did I mention the good value!

Got there at noon and got the last parking spot. Busy place! Lunch specials are a fantastic value. The food quality was a mixed bag. I ordered sweet and sour chicken and the sauce was from a jar. Hot and sour soup was too sweet and not hot. Hubby ordered a spicy coconut milk dish and the sauce was obviously... More
