We waited about 90 minutes for a table on a busy Saturday evening. However the service was fast and friendly and food came out briskly. Flavors were amazing on all the dishes we tried. Would recommend this place.

I was thinking of tasting something new so came to this place and got an spicy chicken with rice, the rice was amazing. The staff was really kind. Would recommend visiting. Although I think the portions are too big for me.

We had an excellent dinner in Facing East (Bellevue Way). The food is original and tasteful. Excellent service and excellent prices. Be careful that three stars spicy in this place is similar to four in other Asian restaurant. I recommend this restaurant. MB
