    Everything is good here. Love the shrimp fried rice and HIGHLY recommend the Korean BBQ beef sandwich. For my sweet tooth the sweet ice tea hits the spot. Eduardo

    Love this place. Great lunch specials and their peanut dressing and spicy lime dressing are amazing. I love getting their sweet and sour but their pork bun was disappointing. Fast friendly service!

    Spicy Noodles, spring rolls, and the house fried rice are all quite nice. The jasmine tea (hot) is excellent. The spicy noodle dish is large enough to share between 2 people.

    Definitely a cool spot and a favorite. The Thai chicken fried rice and pad thai are yummy and super cheap. Better than lotus next door. The kimchi is also great & their $5 lunch plates can't be beat.

    the best salmon fried rice I've ever had. My friend had the yellow curry chicken crispy roll and said it's delicious (also enormous)

    Liked the cozy atmosphere. Wonton noodle was pretty good and sweet and sour chicken(pic) was also good but little too sweet.

    Spicy lime salad dressing is so good! But no more dumplings served here anymore :( - which was the reason for me to come!

    The Crispy Rolls are like chimichanga with chinese food as the filling. Very good flavors! Also good is the fried rice and pad thai dishes.

    Sorry. Overrated. Tofu fresh roll was all lettuce with a small piece of tofu. BBQ short ribs extremely fatty and chicken wings average
