“Wonderful food, terrific service as always.”
Reviewed April 20, 2013

Had my favorite Cassoulet Egg Plant - roasted Asian egg plant stir fried with scallops, calamari, shrimp, ginger and onions. Others had their favorite steamed Sea Bass with Ginger. Started with appetizers of Vietnamese Egg Rolls - crispy pork and chicken wraps with carrot, onions and rice noodles. Served with fish sauce. Also, Streamed Shrimp dumplings and crispy chicken wings. The bartender here makes the best Martini's (up) in town. It must be in the shaking. Very busy place on weekends. They do take reservations. The servers work very well together and are well trained to meet what ever the situation. They are very consistant. It is family owned.

“Some dish quite good, some ok.”
Reviewed March 21, 2013

The pad thai and fresh spring rolls were very good. The pho was not. The pot stickers and basil thai just ok. Service was good.

“Very very good”
Reviewed January 20, 2013 via mobile

We had the sweet and sour chicken that was awesome. When a place takes the time to cut the carrots like the attached picture you know the food will taste good. We will definitely be going back.

“"Great food and Service"”

The spring rolls and peanut sauce were excellent as was the spicy cashew chicken! I can not wait to go back and try some of their other dishes!

“Sorry We Waited So Long to Go There”
Reviewed December 2, 2012

We have gone to the close-by theater for many years and have seen the Orchid Restaurant but never eaten there until last night. With so many Asian eateries nearby, we just didn't feel the need to try this one. Now we're sorry we didn't eat there sooner. Service was indeed great- lots of staff last night, which was good because this was the busiest Asian place we've been to in a long time. We had the sesame chicken and pork lo mein- both fantastic, fresh, wonderfully seasoned. Next time we'll try some of the other dishes. I should say we looked at the "specials" box on the menu first and thought this was a very pricey place. But everything else was priced as you would expect at a good Asian restaurant.
