    Favorite restaurant of ours in Raleigh hands down. The Five Star chicken dinner and heat seeker shrimp appetizer can't be beat. We've been 20+ times and take all friends and visiting family there.

    Reserve the loft for parties. We had a group of fifty and everyone was very happy and well taken care of. We loved it! #givemeyourcat

    Food is a little soy sauce heavy and the fried rice isn't as good as it was a year ago.

    Find Khoa the manager...make sure you order the heat seeker shrimp and if the bartender Stevo is working, get a drink from him...one of the best in town! Read more

    The crab rangoons are the best I've had and you can't go wrong with the spicy beef with noodles.

    The heat seeker shrimp is tasty, but less spicy than it used to be. Make sure they send out some Sriracha!

    They do not ask you how spicy you want the food. Explicitly tell them. Also, I tried 2 dishes; both sauces were too sweet.

    No separate checks. Forgot this used to be Wicked Smile--I ate there just once, too. Ridiculous for a group of two couples to have to be fumbling with exchanging cash in the 21st century.
