“Big flavors and large portions of great food at a small cost.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 4, 2012

This is our favorite restaurant in Riverside. My husband and I enjoy the savory Crispy Duck with pineapple sauce, at a better quality, quantity and lower price than some French restaurants we have tried. Other delicious dishes include the Wonton Soup and the house salad with lettuce, crispy noodles and peanut sauce.

A vast variety of items, (over 87), are on the menu. There is something for everyone including vegetarian, less spicy and mild dishes. Each hardy entrée is large enough to split with another person. We were full until the next day. The most expensive meal is $12.95 and many entrées are under $10.00 at the time of this review. What a deal!!!!

Our friends introduced us to this cozy and relaxed family atmosphere café, near the airport and Van Buren Boulevard. The cafe owner’s house, a cute light green building with a large front porch, has been converted into a restaurant. Inside there is a small gift shop in the back corner. In the front of the dining area is a large screen TV and karaoke set-up for singing at night. The décor is brightly colored, Thai style decorated walls contrasting with dark tables and chairs.

We look forward to returning here to eat when we are in Riverside.
