Went as a group of four adults. Was told the place is usually jammed packed so we called ahead for reservations. But, since it was the day after Thanksgiving the place was only modestly crowded. Lots of local folks were there (we were only visiting.)...More

My wife and I have been coming here for years but tonight may be the very last time. Been here over an hour and still don’t have our order? Take out receives priority. Such a shame. New owners? New management? Pathetic.

My children and I ate here on vacation. Restaurant was very clean and the food was excellent. The spicy basil stir fry had a great flavor and the curry jumbo shrimp my son had was also great.
