    Unassuming place, but here I’ve had some of the best Chinese, Singaporean, Malaysian & Filipino cuisine! All authentic down to the condiments required of each dish!

    Everything Is good here. Try a small wonton soup with a Thai iced coffee for supreme satisfaction. Beef cubes over tomato sauce rice for the win.

    We tried the pot stickers and the chicken wings for appetizers. They were good. The siumai was ok but I wouldn’t recommend it. They are known for their smoothies here. Have a reservation or wait.

    This place has been a fav of mine for years now. The vermicelli noodles are awesome along with the governors and teriyaki chicken dishes. Don't forget to try the crab rangoon as a starter

    This place is awesome. They serve pan-asian food that's out of this world! You have to try their beef cubes over tomato rice. Yumm-o! And the banana smoothie is a must!

    Stay away from the nasty owner, who has zero professionalism. Jess from the original Jess Cafe should give her some business pointers.
