“Chinese and Vietnamese mixture”
Reviewed 2 July 2014

Huge portions, cheap and tasty.What more to ask for? Service was swift and friendly. I had a chinese style chicken which really tasted better than it would have done in China (where the food really isn't that good). As opposed to the chinese food you'll find back home (Sweden) it is a bit more genuine. Would I go back? In the blink of an eye.
It's a small place, but there where plenty of tables free when we where there.
A good place to start the evening if you're going for drinks in Kazimierz.
Not a place for a romantic dinner though.

“Great asian food at least for polish standards”
Reviewed 12 January 2014

I live in krakow and eat there frequently. There are not many asian places in poland in general (except warsaw) and this one, in my opinion, is second best in krakow after horai on plac wolnica (also 50% cheaper). Get pork thai or vietnamese style on a hot plate and you won't regret it

“Fast and filling”
Reviewed 11 November 2013

Went there with my wife at 3.00 pm. Though it was outside the normal lunchtime, the place was just about full with a continuous stream of take out orders. The 2 Vietnamese ladies serving customers were not particularly friendly but were efficient at providing a menu and taking orders. On talking with them later, I found that they and the chef were Vietnamese from Hanoi.

Our lunch of piquant duck with pineapple, rice and salad and chicken lemon grass with rice and salad was much larger than anticipated. Unusually as well, the amount of duck and chicken was disproportionately large compared to the rice and salad. The taste: average; price: US$4 to 6 per meal; time from arrival to getting food: 15 minutes.

For a quick filling meal at a reasonable price there are probably a lot worse places.

“nasty attitude”
Reviewed 9 November 2012

turned up at 7.30pm to find it full, came back at 8.30pm to find 4 empty tables, told by blonde waitress no tables available take away only as they close at 10pm, i said to her you have an hour and a half still to go, she quickly explained something about the chef cooking hot food and we can have take away in 5 minutes and go. myself, my wife and daughter were not impressed that we couldnt sit down for a meal and yet they could throw together a takeaway in 5 minutes. i dread to think what would have been in the takeaway, the waitress had a bad attitude towards us the minute we walked in, maybe we dressed to smartly. will never even consider stepping foot in here again, nasty attitude, nasty sweaty waitress and nasty customer service
