- No matter what entrée you choose, I recommend that you spring for an order of Lao Fried Rice…to share. We tried this out of curiosity, but I would definitely call it a must-have. – Anne Mitchell, CityBeat
- [The summer rolls] were as delicious as they looked, if not more so. and the three sauces they were served with were good individually but even more fantastic all combined. – Emily, Urbanspoon
- Ever dream about a certain meal you’ve had or let it haunt you during waking hours? Yeah, me too. My latest specter takes the form of Panang Curry (ordered extra hot) from Kar-Ma. – Cincy Hound Dog, Urbanspoon
