The spices in the dishes really help bring the food together. The restaurant itself is very clean and eloquent. The owners and workers here are very nice and hospitable.... More

We loved the food here. Both times we've been the entrees were very yummy. They make some of the best crab Rangoon around. The service was great.

A large menu will leave you stumped on what to choose from and I'm not even talking about choosing from appetizers ! I ordered the crispy fish with is massive and plenty flavorful !

I reviewed Cre-Asian a few months ago--but wanted to note that they have added a Chinese menu. My favorite on this not-so-spicy menu is the Basil Eggplant. Inspired.

Cre-Asian is such a small restaurant, maybe referred to as a hole in the wall but it is a wonderful restaurant with unique flavors. I eat here often and also received catering from them for parties. Every time I order from Cre-asian the food is outstanding and consistent.

I've heard it's under new Mngmt and was again a great spot. I've found it to be lacking!! The Satay Phõ tasted like peanut soup. I get that satay is w/peanuts but the broth had absolutely no rich Phõ taste whatsoever! My Granddaughters Tofo noodles was exactly the same. No flavor other than thin broth. Servings are indeed generous but... More

I enjoyed the atmosphere here. The menu has a large variety of options, since this was my first time, I went with the basics...Orange Chicken...wishing I had gone off the beaten path...I think this place is a hidden gem and look to return again.
