“Okay food but lousy service”
Reviewed 6 September 2013 via mobile

Not the best Chinese or Thai I have ever tasted but it was just okay. What brought the rating down was the horrible service. They only had one waiter for dinner time and this idiot had an attitude. He avoided eye contact at all times and forget about refills. Not once did he come by to see how we were doing that goes to say no drink refills either. When I asked for to go boxes he came back and dropped them on the table... really?.. this is how you treat a customer and you want a tip! These restaurants need to realize that great service is the key to the success of a business specially with so many new restaurants popping up all over the valley. Save your money, you can have better Thai food just two blocks away.

Wish we had Chinese like this close to my home in Oregon. Portions were great, fresh and awesome flavor if you can't tell my wife and I loved the food.

“Excellent food, good portions.”
Reviewed 29 March 2013

We got take out for my sons birthday this week and everyone LOVED the food. We ordered Orange Chicken, Pineapple Chicken, and Pineapple Shrimp. Everything tasted fresh and was the perfect temperature to enjoy.

You can tell that quality ingredients are used and even leftovers reheated tasted great. We'll definitely eat here again.

“Worst Thai restaurant ever !”
Reviewed 4 March 2013

We came here with high hopes of trying a new Thai restaurant as we love Thai food.

The first bad impression we got was when we walked in the front door only to see the delivery driver walk in behind us. He had his car parked in the handicapped parking zone right in front of the door. He didn't have a handicapped license plate or a hang tag on his mirror! That's disrespectful towards the handicapped that need that space to park.

The second bad impression was the fact the hostess gave us a table right next to another couple despite the whole restaurant having several other empty tables ! We were only the second party in this place when we went in. We should have been given a table away from others so we can have a quiet time and not have to feel crowded by being seated next to other diners. We felt that the hostess just wanted to make her job easier by bunching us next to another occupied table.

Third bad impression was 3 other tables right next to us still had not been cleared of off their dirty dishes. Tables were not cleared off the whole time we were there ! Only four customers in the restaurant and the waitress can't find the time to clear them off ???

Fourth bad impression was the food itself. We ordered the spring rolls, pad thai and pineapple curry with shrimp.
The Spring rolls were the worst ever ! It did not have any shredded carrots, shredded cucumbers, nor any mint leaves !!! I've never had spring rolls that didn't have these ingredients in them. Needless to say, without these ingredients we found the spring rolls to be very bland. The chef either was being lazy or just didn't know the proper way to make fresh spring rolls !
The Pad Thai was the worst as it didn't taste right for some reason and the noodles were really gummy, Seemed like the noodles weren't fully cooked.
The Pineapple curry with shrimp was tasty and good. However, I was really puzzled as to why there was only 3 or 4 pieces of pineapple in the whole dish !!! Plenty of shrimp but not on the pineapple. Don't be so cheap with the portions of pineapple in your dishes.....

Definitely will not ever come here again.

“Room service to hotel”
Reviewed 18 December 2012

Good food delivered quickly. The person who took my order quoted 45 min to 1 hour. I think that he could tell that I was hoping for less and delivered himself in less than 30 min.
