We have been eating here several times a year for many years, only because it is about 40 miles from home. BUT, each time we go it is a 'dancing in your mouth' experience in a small but very clean and pleasant environment. We get monthly coupons for discounts but would go even if they didn't. Price is very good,... More

Tangerine Café is in a strip shopping center. The atmosphere is pretty bland. The other thing I noticed was there was no Asian Staff at least out front. The food however was really good as was the service. Very extensive menu with a great variety. Ordered Mizo Salmon and it was really good. Service was really good but they almost... More

We have eaten every dish on the menu and have never been disappointed. We live lunch but often go for dinner also. Truly a hidden gem

Always delicious food! We love the macadamia chicken dish. Also, the Mongolian beef is great. Small place though, so you may experience a wait on the weekend.

Always great food! Have had lettuce wraps, macadamia chicken and curry fish, along with Korean beef all are excellent. We usually do take out from here as the place is small and does not serve wine (only beer)

Despite my idiot spell checker changing VERMACELLI to "vertical in my earlier review, I hope the message got across- these folks put out well above average pan-asian food at reasonable prices with excellent service.

Although this is a small place (arrive early during peak times); very few tables, but well worth the wait!! Small menu, but everything on it is fresh, made to order, authentic and sure to please. This is our "go to place for lunch, at least 1X a week."

Ever since we moved to the Raleigh area, we've searched for a good Vietnamese restaurant. Looks like we've found it! The menu is really pan-far-eastern. We can't wait to get back and try the Thai, Korean, Japanese offerings too. Reasonable prices, very nice wait staff, and a chef who really knows what he's doing. No fancy shmancy trendy junk, just...

Since we moved to NC 3 years ago, we had been searching for a good Thai restaurant. Search no more. Tangerine Cafe is now our favorite Thai place, and every time we eat here, we love it even more. Their Lentil soup is my husband's favorite, their Tom Yum and Tom Karr soups are also absolutely delicious. They also make... More
