Good beer selection... Food not really authentic but I still recommend... Waitresses are hot to top it off... Worth trying but not if you are going for something original... Can get good level of spice... I like my food like my women... Hot

Went here for dinner last night with my husband. They have a nice cocktail list, specials, and a good menu selection to chose from without offering too many choices. We both got the Singapore Redux cocktail and my husband also tried another with sweetened condensed milk in it. The base was rum, but I can't remember the name of the drink. We ordered some edamame and dumplings to start. We shared the pork belly special, which was a good idea, because it was a pretty hefty, rich serving of pork belly. The pork belly was sliced thick and had a crunchy sesame seed crust on top. Our only complaint was that the pork could've been sliced a little thinner and was slightly overcooked. I also tried the Tom Yum soup, which is one of my favorites. This one was missing something...maybe not enough fish sauce or rice wine vinegar. I'm not sure, but it needed something. The bartender waited on us from the next room, and he did a great job keeping us happy. Despite having to share the space with a rather large party, that had uncontrollable kids making laps around the tables, it was a pretty nice night out.

This is one of our new favorite restaurants in Tremont! Prices are relatively low and the food is tremendous. My first visit towards the end of summer brought me back for the pad thai. It is really light and flavorful and re-heats really well - the portion is big. The summer rolls were refreshing and the spring rolls had a crispiness without being greasy. We really enjoyed the steamed bun. The service was good- maybe a little slow and inconsistent in timing. The food really makes up for it.

We stopped on a Thursday night following a visit to the Christmas Story House - learned about it on the House website.

Before you completely believe the hype on the site, this location is mentioned based on its cuisine's loose tie in with the movie. This isn't actually where Ralphie's family went for Chinese turkey. With that said, we couldn't be happier that we went.

The menu is a dream of options for anyone with vegetarian needs. We had the babyback rib special and the pad thai. Both were very tasty. We also had the edimame and the spring rolls. So fresh and well done! We also tried the mangarita, the specialty mojito and their popular 17th Parallel drink that had more cucumber flavor than we anticipated. The former two were our favorites. Lots of creative ingredients!

We sat outside but noticed the interior as beautiful, too. This was the perfect way to round out our foodie experience in Cleveland - awesome!
