This restaurant is right next to the new Sheraton Four Points. It has been there for many years making it feel "Homey" on the inside. The food and the service was excellent.

The flavors in the food are rich.  The price is not too much. We were in a hurry and they got us in and out.  We just had to tell them first. Note: they have a 5 point scale...4 is spicy but not too hot.  However there are higher levels to their scale beyond 5 which they don't advertise.

My wife and I are doing an overnight at the Four Points Sheraton Airport South (SeaTac) and this charming little place was a short walk. Very quaint, outstanding hospitality, outstanding food and huge portions. I had Ramma noodles with beef and my wife had green shrimp curry. Fantastic, chased down with plum wine and Singha beer. Really enjoyed this meal.

I visited the Emerald Gardens and could not believe the delicious flavored they served us. My choices was orange beef and steam rice with deep fried stuffed Wong tong out standing. John the owner was more than friendly will return again

This is nice and small restaurant that offers very tasty food. The only problem is the service and wait time. My family came there near 7mp on Monday and we had to wait over 45 min for the food to come. After being done with the main course we waited over 5 min for desert and we eventually left without...

I found the food was great. The portions were more than ample. The service was pretty good, it appears to be a family owned restaurant. I also found it was a bit pricey, but for the amount of food you get it's not bad. I was there for dinner and had a stir fry pork, great flavor nice amount of... More

The owners were gracious and very nice. Tge food was diverse and yummy. Master John and Kanata his wide of 50 years were a pleasure to meet. It was more than a meal it was a cultural experience. Try it .. You will be pleased I promise!
