Reviewed August 23, 2012

It's a good value for the price...you get full and unlimited juice and/ or tea. The tea was very flavorful. The meats are rough, cheap cut with many small slinter bones in it. Many diseh are very flavorable, but the way they process and hack up the chicken and pork cuts...cutlets makes for many small splinter bones in the food...meat dishes...It you (one) has tender mouth or teeth or sensitive gums chew very slowly and careful...i bit down on some hard bones a few times in my four visits...just take you time and chew slow and carefully. The flavor if Filipino...Pinoy and some delicious; some so-so. Some dishes are strong in Curry- so, Indian folk may like that. They do have fruit and its presented well but on the less flavorable side. Water mellon, Mango, others. One of the chocolate cakes had an awesome frosting:"to-die-for". But, I only saw this cake one my last visit of 4 over 10 days....Maybe, it was a left over cake from catering? they put out? If one could find that cake everytime nothing else would even matter? Just eat the cake and drink tea...and, you have more then your money's worth...But, that unique cake (purple ish) frosting was not there the first 3 visits? Maybe, the pastery chef was on vacation? But, seriously, watch out for small bones...all Asain countries(China, Vietnam, Cambodia, Thailand) just seem to hack away at the chicken and pork with the butcher knife leaving many small hurtful bones in the stew, soups, dishes. Sensitive teeth and older patrons must be advised and warned to take care and proceed to eat with caution...to avoid dental problems, mouth cuts, harm to teeth. The resturant had air conditioned units visable but had only the fans going...some were on slow speed or broken - stuck in low spin gear. Each time I got quite hot inside...swet under arms and neck...but the great ice tea helped. Maybe, my pre-diabetes was kicking in after the yummy cake. he he he. If the cooled the place properly they probably have to raise they price of the food. Bring you own tissue for the comfort room and to dry you hands after bathroom break...
