Quick service, excellent salad rolls, peanut sauce and sweet chili dipping sauce! We only had the rolls as a snack with the kids and were very pleased, definitely plan to go back!

This has indoor and outdoor seating. You order at the counter and it is more casual dining. But don't let that fool you. Quality food at reasonable prices. The owner is the real deal and even appears on a local cooking program.
