- From the Thai iced tea, to the pot-stickers and crispy spring rolls, to the tasty pad tai [sic] and various stir fry dishes, I've never had anything there that wasn't delicious. – bugmenot12, Citysearch
- The yellow curry with scallops is exceptional and so are the drunken noodles. My husband orders the seafood salad and it is scrumptous and spicy and there is ample seafood and it is very fresh. The prices are reasonable. It is one of our favorites! – nursedocstl, TripAdvisor
