“A revelation!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 10, 2013

It's a small, cozy, but upbeat restaurant, with both indoor and outdoor seating. The food was varied and excellently prepared. The drinks were also excellent, and the prices were very reasonable.

“Great Pad Thai!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 23, 2013

Wife and I stopped here for dinner and were really impressed. Both ordered chicken pad thai, it was fantastic. They use cilantro in it, which was kindof different, but really great. Great service and atmosphere, good people watching from this spot.

“Holy Cow!!”

By far the best Peking duck tacos I've ever had. Plus the Korean beef tartare was outstanding. Try the pad Thai with chicken!! This is by far one of the best meals I have ever had

“Worst place we have been too. Waited a long time to be hugely dissapointed”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 19, 2013

This restaurant looks the part but serves meat that has to be microwave defrosted and that was the reason that my meal came 30 mins before my husbands. I had vermicelli noodles that had no seasoning and the green curry sauce I expect was out of a jar. Once my husbands ribs did arrive they were tough and tasteless which was a disappointment as he had waited an hour. The waiter got annoyed that I complained saying that he wasn't the owner and there was nothing he could do. I spoke to the owner who offered to give us our 3 soft drinks as complimentary but still kept nearly 10 dollars service charge on the bill. I wouldn't go here again based on the bad service and poor quality of our meals.
