“Best to avoid”
Reviewed 7 May 2013

While their special south north dinner sounds like a good deal, beware. While the (lukewarm) won ton soup, egg roll and BBQ pork were acceptable, the rest was not very good, even unedible. The meat in the sweet and sour pork was impossible to chew. The brown sauce on the chicken had congealed and the chicken was tough. The beef with snow peas had too few of both, but a pile of big chunks of cabbage. The pork fried rice was so so. What a waste! There is not much choice of restaurants in Forks but this one should be avoided.

“Good food,nice owners”
Reviewed 5 January 2013

We ate here during our overnight trip to Forks. The food was of good quality, the price was reasonable and the restaurant was clean. My daughter was very excited because she loves "Friends" and they had a picture of when Matt LeBlanc was in the area and ate there.

“Chinese in Forks, WA?”
Reviewed 29 October 2012

Indeed, there are 2 Chinese restaurants in this little town. This one, according to the front desk clerk, was the "good one". We did not have an opportunity to try the other one but thought this one was pretty good. We tried a deep fried chicken dish and the beef with broccoli. They were both pretty good, though high in sodium. Service was a little slow and not prepared for those of us who prefer to eat our Chinese food with chopsticks but they managed to find a couple

“Great food, shame there's no beer”
Reviewed 13 October 2012

We had a good dinner here, a couple of quesadillas if I remember correctly. We had the restaurant recommended to us by someone we got chatting to in Port Angeles. We were initially put off by the fact that it looked like a cafe more than a restaurant, but the food was really good, and the portions generous. We took the remainder home with us to have for lunch the next day, when it filled us up again!

The only down side was that a beer would have gone down very well with the meal, but they don't serve alcohol.

I think they were the cheapest two meals we had in three weeks!

“Wonderful curry!”
Reviewed 19 August 2012

Service was prompt and friendly. Atmosphere and decor was OK. But the food was fabulous. I ordered the Monk's vegetatian curry and my friend had chicken with peapods. Both were delicious. Steamed rice came at an extra cost (one dollar more). Still it was a great value bevause we had enough left over to make dinner for tomorrow. I definitely recommend.
