Noodle soup was awesome !
Tom Yum ... A flop .

We were visiting our friends in East Brunswick, NJ and they took us there for dinner.
It was busy and the service was decent.
Food was great!

It's a shame. This restaurant has excellent food. I have a friend from Malaysia who says it is quite authentic . . . . BUT their service stinks!

If you go and want to order an appetizer, order that and tell them you will complete your order when it is served. Otherwise, you will most certainly get the main course before the appetizer. Don't be bashful! It is an Asian restaurant in the true sense and all servers serve all tables. If your original server never returns or you need something, signal for the first server you see. If you don't you will be disappointed and waste a lot of time.

As I said, excellent food . . . . . . . but they could use a change of management. Parking available and, as an added bonus, there is a large Asian Supermarket next door. Check it out when you are there.

There is a pretty large menu but surprisingly no sushi. The entrees and appetizers were good. And the came out really hot. Service was ok but some seemed a bit scattered. The wait wasn't too long for a Friday nite at 7. Maybe 15 minutes.
