Great place on Mercer Island. The owner is very caring of his customers' feedback and is an interesting person to speak to. This is the type of place that Mercer Island needs

Food is well prepared, I wish it had a little Bigger menu . I find it to have a clean and friendly atmosphere and the owner often come out to visit and see how you liked his food.

I ordered Phad chicken. It was rancid, stinking and they made me pay for it. $13 for inedible food. The waiter blamed it on "a new chef who maybe cooks differently than I'm used to". Yes. Most definitely. I do not eat rancid food and...More
