We love Chef Jon's! He is a master of sauces and flavors. He crafts each dish individually. That can sometimes mean a wait or food not all arriving at once, but it is well worth it. He is also able to personalize each dish with...More

Just the right amount of heat, this is a great little place with a wonderfully inventive chef/owner. By far, the best hot and sour soup I've ever had, the ribs are delicious and we'll return again as we're local.

Smallish menu but interesting tasty combinations. Casual fun atmosphere. Owner is a character. Will cook to order.

Passing through from Oregon and found this wonderful Asian food. Very family friendly with amazing personal service. The flavors were delicious and satisfying. The kids loved the tofu stir fry and crispy chicken. We would definitely recommend it and stop again.

This restaurant is relatively new and overall we did like it. The noodle (pad thai) was excellent but the bean dish was lacking. Jon and staff do everything to make it a good experience. Waiters were outstanding and we were even brought a complimentary treat...More
