Thank you for the review. Spiciness, like any other taste, is very subjective. We have had a default 'medium' returned for being too spicy, and some have complained for its blandness. The Coffee chicken is my take of the Malaysian coffee pork ribs which i...More

Mid way between town and the east end and near the expressway, a great place to meet for lunch. A great lunch menu and value. The grilled shrimp salad is great and it comes with soup or spring roll. Good service.

August Moon is a real go to place for me. I often meet folks coming for another part of town. It is close to downtown and close to the expressway. Their lunch menu is great. For $10 I got hot and sour soup, brown rice...More

I enjoy coming here for lunch meetings. The lunch menu is reasonably priced and you get a large portion plus a soup or an egg roll. The atmosphere is great and it isn't so noisy that you can't carry on a conversation. Service has been...More
