I was going to Chang's and found the door locked until four pm, I ate at this restaurant. Not fond of the lining up like at Wendy's, but the young man was very friendly and explained our choices very well. The butter chicken was delicious as was the rice. I chose the small size and it was good. In fact... More

Was not ready for all this different taste but got to say I will be back. My son took me there and the food was great. So many different plates, that we will need to go back again to enjoy all the varieties. Highly recommended

Crushed peanuts, tamarind paste, Fish sauce, chilies, soya sauce, brown sugar and lime are some of the ingredients missing. The sauce should be brown not red. The noodles were over cooked.

The Beef Pho dish looked good when presented, although with wilted coriander and dated bean sprouts on the side. This had zero seasoning. Had to use a lot of salt and Sriracha to get close to any flavouring. Only thing that saved it from a lower rating was the decent beef to noodle ratio. Huge miss.

First visit. Ordered the Singapore cashew. No cashews, very little veg and shrimp, mostly just noodles. Was not informed that the shrimp would cost extra. Will not waste money here again.

I think I could eat here daily! I have loved everything I ate there, so far. I do recommend asking for changes to a dinner- while I like rice, I recommend the noodles, my fave are the Ribbon noodles and you can get them in place of rice, in any of their selections. It's also very fast. They have the... More

Every time I come into this location I'm greeted which is a nice change from all the usually "fast food" locations. Although the line up can be rather large, especially during lunch hours, the staff power through the line up and get your food to you fast. I've never had a bad dish here and I hope it continue's to... More

I went there yesterday and ordered the Pad Thai with shrimp. The dish was very heavy on the noodles and quite sparse with the veggies/shrimp/sauce. And expensive for what you get. I don't know if I'll risk spending that much money to try another dish in order to see if that was just one of their lousy ones.

If you want to overpay for small portions of cold food so you can get an Asian style folding takeout box with meals built to be bland... This is the place for you. Seems more expensive than mainland franchises. No options to remove or add veggies - it all comes in packs - and I've seen them use frozen. No... More
