I've eaten here many times. But the last health department inspection went very poorly. Which means I will be eating elsewhere.

Friendly staff and owner, nice atmosphere, great food (especially Pad Thai and crab rangoon). They assure food quality is high before serving.

We noticed Larrys Cocoon out our bedroom window, and wanted to try it out. They have pretty good food and not a bad wait time. Fused Asian food, try the peanut thai dish and thai ice tea. yum!

Had the Shrimp Pad Thai and it was delicious with enough shrimp (10) vs some other restaurants. Quality of food was excellent for Anchorage. Staff was friendly and attentive.

Well people rave about this place, but hey to each their own. Food was very bland, not horrible, but forgettable. I guess it's back to pho 4 on government hill and moms pho on Muldoon.

The food was so blunt, no flavor what so ever and it was expensive! Charged us for some extra rice even after ordering 4 entree and two appetizers. The service wasn't satisfying for us. The waitress never showed up when we needed water refills and it was almost impossible to get a hold of her. She totally disappeared after serving... More

The Restaurant is small but very well decorated. The food is delicious & well displayed on the plates. I love the Kalbi Beef & Shrimp. The ginger salad dressing is nice. The rice is always hot & service is excellent. Ice cold water is always replenished with a lemon wedge. Larry always helps serves the food & he always mingles... More

Quick trip in and out for lunch with family, on the way to the airport. Pleasant atmosphere and surprisingly empty for noon on a Saturday. Good service, and excellent food. The spicy food is really..., well, it's spicy! Not just spicy hot, but cooked right and flavorable. The ginger dressing on the salad was very good. The pastry crust on... More

Larrys cocoon is a great place. My new favorite for lunch and dinner. Service is exceptional and fast. The owner is often around serving at dinner and is very friendly. The location isn't great (in a strip mall with a liquor Store and massage parlor) but other than that great

Larry's Cocoon is settled into a strip-mall setting along 36th Avenue near its intersection with Arctic Boulevard, right next to the location of the old Europa Bakery storefront. Its currently neighboring eateries include Campobello and a Domino's Pizza kitchen, with a variety of other businesses also tucked into the same building - the restaurant can be a bit hard to find from the street, with the parking lot a little tight to navigate but usually offering a spot without too much trouble behind the wheel.
