    Make sure to choose butterfish. Bitterly taste, sweetness and accent of herb match together and make it a perfect starter.

    Try the dan dan noodles, khao soi noodles, spicy chicken pops, and even the massive rendition of beef with broccoli. All the flavors will seem familiar, but come presented in a more thoughtful way. Read more

    Tried the butterfish, black rice, chicken pops, pork ribs...no disasters, but no standouts.

    The hanger steak and Chinese broccoli was incredible. Curry noodles and crab fried rice are also highly recommended. Great for groups, share everything, they validate valet parking (enter on Venice).

    Came for a DineLA lunch - trendy place, and reasonably sized portions. The compressed watermelon salad was an interesting and refreshing starter.

    The cooking here resembles nothing you will encounter in Taipei, Myanmar or Malaysia — Sang Yoon's dan dan mian, tea-leaf salad and crab fritters approach the originals in intent, but they're his. Read more

    They're dusted with flour and deep-fried twice in peanut oil, then tossed in more sauce and some Sichuan salt. They're sticky and messy and oh-so-addictive. Read more

    Spicy Chinese Ramen and Atlantic Fluke were great but order more if you're a pig like me. Those were appetizers to me.

    Love this place! Eggplant was amazing as was the crab rice. Service was terrific and not terribly expensive. Want to go back and try the exotic drinks. Ask for the chicken lollipops! Amazeballs.

    Beef and broccoli, share it with your date/friend. One of the best dishes I've ever had. Don't be mislead by the simple name, dish is far from simple.

    Spicy chicken pops are to die for! And ask if they're doing the duck special. It's not on the menu but sometimes they offer it and it's delicious!

    Wow, many dishes are spicy without advertising so. Ask the waitstaff if a dish is spicy to make sure. I love spicy but my husband can't handle it. We can't share some dishes here.
