The meat in the crispy bun was to die for, tender, perfectly cooked and big enough for two meals for me.

This restaurant needs to learn that Black Pepper is not a basic food group. My wife is allergic (not anaphylactic) to black and white pepper. The server said there is pepper in "pretty much everything". All their meats, poultry and fish are pre-seasoned. They had no reasonable suggestions for what she could eat. They acted like they would prefer us... More

Arrived in time for posted Happy Hour. We were seated in a booth and were told the Happy Hour rates apply only if you sit at the bar. Problem was the bar was full. I have never seen such a rigid rule as it applies to Happy Hour. This does not seem fair especially since I see no mention in... More

Had dinner with friends here and enjoyed our experience. The service was attentive and the atmosphere was warm and relaxing. There were many things I wanted to try on the menu, but had the snapper and it was delicious. My spouse had the chicken and it was even better than mine. The drinks flowed heavy and we laughed and enjoyed... More

This was our first visit, with 6 friends, on a Friday night, very busy, good for the restaurant, but it was very loud with lots of little children running around. Dinner was delivered in stages, two meals brought out, then another, and so on. One guest finally got his when everyone else was finished, not good!!! I'm sure we will... More

Friendly attentive service. The baby back ribs were tender, meaty and sauced just right. The Dragon bowl was a terrific mixture of vegetables and rice. We will visit again when we travel this wat.

Just had lunch with friends. Nice atmosphere and good service. Now, it's been a while since I've been there but have the prices increased? $17.00 for West Coast Chowder and $19.00 for Thai Noodles is pricey for lunch. The chowder is very good, average size serving but not worth $17.00. Today, I tried the Black Bean & Corn Veggie burger.... More
