“If you're hungry, this place will do”
Reviewed December 8, 2012

I would have given this place a 2.5 if I had option, simply because the food was so so. There was plenty of food, quick friendly service, nice atmosphere, lots of Asian food options on the menu, but the food itself was nothing to write home about. I had their special, a chinese combo type plate heaped with monochrome chow mein, fried rice, a dried up looking spring roll, and sweet and sour pork. Everything turned out to be edible, and I even took home the leftovers just because I don't waste edible food, particularly if I'm feeling lazy. I won't rush back here, but I didn't leave feeling hungry either.

“They say it's Vietnamese. I'm not so sure about that.”
Reviewed October 2, 2012

Very ordinary food........with not very creative spicing. The sauces taste like they're out of a can. It's sort of like generic Asian.
