“A deceptive name?”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 6, 2013

No rowdiness during our visits, but very good food - fish tacos and spicy mac&cheese were among our favorites. The kitchen is a bit slow but who cares when you sit on the patio, listening to a good band and sip a nice wine or beer.

“Don't get the "asian" noodle salad”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 5, 2013

Yes, silly to write a review for a warning :) - but that salad is an insult to asian salads all across the world.

On a more serious note, the food was above average (relative to other options in St. Croix). The main problem was that everything was soo sweet. The Thai beef salad lacked heat and was nearly cloying sweet. The sauce for the fish tacos were the same - too sweet. The "asian" ribs were also nothing special and the "extra" sauce we asked for appeared to be the marinade - inedible as it was too sweet and overpowered by the soy sauce. Don't get me started on the noodle salad!

As a baseline, in any food town, rowdy's would have gotten a 3 - but in St. Croix, it's a 4.

“Savory appetizers and entrees”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 25, 2013

The wide range of Asian influenced appetizers will make most people quite happy. A variety of tasty entrees enhances the experience. Unfortunately service was turtle paced, the kitchen appearing to be the constrain as waiters were attentive and efficient.
