Very nice lunch, good portions, friendly staff. Tasted really good. Nice that they had lots of ice-tea for drinks with the hot food.

For those of us used to spicy food; to those of us who have travelled to Thailand; for those of us who like some spice, this is definitely not for you. Dumbed down for Western tastes beyond belief. Absolutely no spicy heat at all. Even...More

We are big big fans of the Asian cuisine and this place left us a bit confused. We get the concept behind it and think it is very cool, but the food just didn't do it for us. The cold teas were really tasty and...More
