$6.49 lunch specials. We one fish (breaded, fried) and one chicken dish. Both came with delicious greens. Lots of white rice (no brown rice available) , very tasty, homemade spicy oil provided on the side. Pot of tea included. Casual, clean , waiter service.

Not sure. You can order vegetables. Wait staff is bilingual but they don't have degrees in food science.
