    I love both the Four Seasons AND the Mambo Mambo Chicken. The Love Boat is a great appetizer. And the soups are great. Also the fresh spring rolls are wonderful.

    Open Late! They have a REAL Vegetarian menu too without the fish sauce, oyster sauce, or egg! Awesome drunken noodles with mock duck here

    Service is always good! Atmosphere is wonderful! But the icing on the cake is the Amarin Crater- pineapple fried rice served in an actual pineapple.

    Spicy noodles are very good. Hint...when they ask what level of spice.....I tried #4....it had a hell of a kick...just sayin!

    Try the Taro Pearls in Coconut Cream - This was creamy but not heavy the sesame seeds added texture. subtle earthy character that was very appealing. Delicious.

    Try the Potak Soup - Really large pieces of Squid. The broth savory and tart from lemongrass. Very satisfying starter.

    Get their CPK Volcano. It's chicken and spinach in a green curry, but they put it in tin-foil shaped like a chicken, and then light it on fire! So delicious!

    Sake-marinated shrimp and duck bathed in feisty choo-chi sauce are among the refreshing departures from everyone else’s usual curry dishes.
