“Great change of pace”
Reviewed December 3, 2013 via mobile

This is definitely a place you'll want to try while in Nosara. After 12 days of eating (really good) Gallo Pinto, Fish, Ceviche etc, we were ready for something a little different. This was the spot! The food was very light and not at all oily/greasy, like most Asian food in the US. The Szechuan Beef was perfectly crisp, and not overpowered by the sauce, and the Pad Thai was really nice too. We ended up eating here the last two nights of our stay. Only regret was that we didn't try it sooner!

“Delicious Asian Food with Gluten-Free Options!”
Reviewed November 23, 2013 via mobile

This was one of our best meals in Nosara and we almost didn't go due to a review here. We had the summer rolls, which were fresh and delicious with a very tasty peanut sauce--plenty to share. Then we had the Bermese salad, which was small but excellent if you're in the mood for some greens. (I think I just wanted more!). For dinner we shared Pad Thai, which is something in always get to judge a Thai restaurant, and this didn't disappoint. Then we got lemongrass Shrimp--yum! Yes, their menu isn't extensive, but why not be great at the items that are the best. A friend said the beef dish is to die for so ill probably have to try that when we go back in a day or so. We topped it off with coconut flan --let me tell you, you really haven't had another flan with such an amazing bottom texture of coconut. Even better--the service is attentive and sweet. And Chef Josep came out to talk to us because of a gluten free issue. This is really something that makes a celiac comfortable--he showed us exactly what we could have and even conferred with us with some packaging to make sure. Definitely make this a stop in Nosara if you're in the mood for some surprisingly awesome Asian fare!

“Disappointed”
Reviewed November 18, 2013

Having looked at the reviews on tripadvisor, this was our choice for our first evening meal in Nosara and i was really looking forward to it.

I love vietnamse spring rolls but did not think much of those on offer here as well as the dipping sauce that accompanied them. My partner had the sesame beef for a main which she enjoyed although i thought her beef was tough, the rice to accompany was overcooked which was the same with my chicken dish. I thought the menu was quite limited.

Service was good and if i was in the area again i would give it another try as it seems well thought of locally.

“The perfect pick from each Asian cuisine”
Reviewed August 25, 2013

The menu is very small, but has a few classic dishes from Thailand, China, etc. I went for the lo mein and the sauce was out of this world. The veggies tasted like they'd just been picked fresh from the garden. My mother's Thai lemongrass shrimp was aromatic and perfectly prepared. They don't have cocktails, but you can get a local beer to go with your dinner.
