The food is very good and my family and I love going here. The only downside is my daughter cut her tongue on a slither of china that was in the food. It was brought to the attention of the server as well as how cracked most of the dinnerware was. We were asked if we wanted another rice dish... More

Went with my Mom as a treat, as she loves the lobster in scallion and ginger sauce, and she wasn't disappointed! She said it was great like the other times. I got a stir fry with chicken and beef and asked for it spicy. It was nice and hot and a good choice, as were the spring rolls. The warm... More

My wife and family came here for our traditional Christmas Day celebration. Our family is Jewish and this is something I have embraced. This was not my mother In-laws first choice and that one was an hour wait and none of us had any desire to wait rhat long. This was option B. The service for a buffet has great... More

Husband and I went to a birthday celebration for a family member. Wine was excellent and reasonably priced. I ordered the salmon Miso and it was excellent. However, my husband ordered chicken fried rice and he could find hardly any chicken and it was dry and tasteless. We all had wonton soup and it was delicious. Other members of the... More

I have eaten here several times. Food has always been good and is clean, and the waiters/waitresses are polite. Service is usually slow but I prefer that if the food is worth the wait, which I think it is to some degree. To me it seems classier than many of the Asian restaurants in the area. It is not a...

I hate to write bad restaurant reviews. And the place looks nice, so I wanted to like it..but just couldn't. We like Thai & since it's on the menu, & we live about 5 miles from this restaurant, decided to give it a try. First, the service is bad. That seems to be a common theme in the negative reviews....

At 6pm we had the place almost all to ourselves. Ordered the coconut shrimp (in creamy sauce over vegetables) with wonton soup. Soup was very good, with three delicious wontons. The shrimp arrived looking great, 8 large butterflied shrimp golden brown sitting atop an array of vegetables. A side bowl of creamy sauce and bowl of steamed rice came with.... More

While on a road trip we wanted a quick on/off interstate. We used their online app to order and it was very easy to use. The restaurant is very clean. The best part, was that the entrees, and sushi where excellent and enjoyed by all.

Workday lunch visit. The staff was friendly but a bit slow. It took nearly 5 min for someone to see I had walked in and then seat me. The menu offered a variety of lunch special choices, at a very reasonable price and generous portions for the quality. The atmosphere and decor were nice. The sesame chicken was drowning in... More
