“Great Asian Fusion, Nice Location”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 January 2008

Okii Mama is on the south side of Columbia, squeezed into a strip mall next to a Panera Bread, but it's probably my favorite place for East Asian food in town. It has counter service only, great for takeout, but unlike many places in town, it's very clean and nicely decorated for eating in, lunch or dinner.
The menu is not specifically Chinese or Thai, but a combination of both. My favorite is the coconut curry, and my wife thinks the pad thai is pretty good (and she would know- it's her favorite Thai dish), but they also have sesame chicken and General Tso's if that's your thing. Tip: they'll substitute tofu for most dishes on the menu if you ask, but they don't advertise that. They'll also leave off the fish stuff if you tell them to, no problem. (The staff is wonderful!) This is a great place for both herbivores and carnivores.
Another tip: you can often find coupons around town for Okii Mama, so keep an eye out. But the prices are very reasonable, especially for such great food. Definitely put this one on your list.
