We order from this restaurant often and absolutely love it. The owner always take great care of us. We have lots of different food allergies, and she is constantly looking out for us. If you have a dish that you would like, she will have the kitchen make it for you. When we dine there, everyone is very welcoming and

Tremendous variety of Thai, Chinese. Everything I have tried has been delicious. The Currys are very tasty. My favorite is the Thai Basil Dish. I liked being able to select my level of spice in my entree. My favorite Asian in Oro Valley.

My wife and I spent a very pleasnat day in Tucson and on our way back we ran into this very quaint and pleasant little restaurant. We decided to get the Fried rice with a veggie and vegan "meatless" beef stir fry. It was very good and the price wasn't bad at all either, we will definitely be back!

Small restaurant but great food. I used to travel to Thailand often and the Thai food here is the closest I've had to the food I enjoyed in Thailand.

There are very few Taiwanese restaurants around Tucson and this one is definitely the best. It is totally worth to come for an awesome meal despite of the distance from downtown. Order their fried rice (chicken, pork, beef or seafood) if you have not tried it yet. They literally have the very most delicious fried rice in Tucson. Their Mongolian... More

Although we weren't sure what to expect from this small restaurant- we were very pleased. Very good, except the hot and sour soup was not as good as others I have had

My friend was aching for Udon and ordered the Seafood Udon which was loaded with mouthwatering, large scallops. She also ordered the hot & sour soup, which was very HOT on the taste buds. I ordered a bowl of dumpling soup, a version of won ton, without the vegetables and sesame oil added in. Very tasty. I also ordered the... More

This is my favorite place for asian food in Tucson. I love being able to choose from thai, chinese, korean, and Japanese dishes. I have been here so many times for lunch and dinner and the quality is always consistently great. The service is always friendly and prompt as well.

My wife and I have gone here a few times for lunch and ordered the Big Bento meals. I like Kung Pao chicken but the meal here was not great. Egg rolls were soggy and obviously frozen. The sauce overpowered the chicken. The egg drop soup was barely warm. The dumpling was all breading and no filler. Overall the food... More
