“Unexpected surprise!”
Reviewed 20 March 2014

We were strolling through "2nd Sunday on King St" recently and came across this restaurant.
The food was really really good and the waiter was awesome. The food came quickly and it was delicious. We were pleasantly surprised at the level of service we received.
The only flaw is the long line up for the one unisex washroom in the restaurant. Even their staff had to wait in line.

“Great price for high quality food”
Reviewed 6 March 2014

After a day of sightseeing, we wanted something we could pick up and take back to our Hotel ( The Restoration on KIng - 5 Stars), and I zipped over and picked up carry out. They were quick, polite, and the food was very, very good , especially for the price!

“Don't be fooled by the cafeteria look!”
Reviewed 16 February 2014

This place might be easy to pass up because it looks so informal, but don't be fooled. (A Charleston native turned me on to it!) The curry comes in three varieties and all are great, so now it is time to try other menu items. Which will not be hard to do at an average check of $12.

“Fast and delicious”
Reviewed 29 November 2013

Highly recommend the Alaskan roll, dumplings, seasoned edamame, and stir fried noodles with shrimp. The food came quickly. It was all delicious.

“Great Find”
Reviewed 19 November 2013

I heard mixed reviews of Fire. The bad reviews turned out to be from people who expected a formal dining experience. The good reviews were from people who expected great food in an informal, ALMOST, cafeteria setting.

Three of us dined. We each had a different curry. All of us loved the curry. Our bowls were heaped with veggies over rice. At about $8 per serving we had each plenty to eat. We shared a plate of edamame dumplings which were excellent. Note: the curries paired perfectly with the local Westbrook IPA ($4 per can).

Summary: Wonderful Asian-inspired food at affordable prices in an informal setting.
