    Oyster wings are the best. Friendly staff who are willing to accommodate orders for special dietary needs.They have Bahn Mi and a few other new menu items posted by the register. Pad Thai is delish.

    Amazing pad Thai, crab wontons, and stir fried noodles. It's great for takeout, and dining in. The environment is surprisingly pleasant for a meal.

    Shrimp, Chicken and Vegetables Fried Rice was a knock out. Out of this world. Very impressed and a sneaky play for West Downtown MPLS.

    Have their walleye with black bean sauce along with their shrimp spring rolls packed with little juicy crustaceans offering a satisfying pop when you bite. Read more

    Great staff, and the food is delicious. I usually opt for carry-out. Although the restaurant is small it never feels overpacked.

    Go straight for the pork spring rolls! Warm, juicy pork and veggie fill in a soft yet flaky wrap.

    If you order an appetizer. Tell them you would like it before your entree or they often come at the same time!
