A charming atmosphere. The good was very good. I had the duck rolls and they were excellent. Also the grilled salmon which was also good. The service was spotty. A bit slow considering it was not that crowded. However, I would definitely go back again and while I did not have dessert, they looked fabulous as they were in a case looking just delicious.

We have enjoyed this restaurant since it opened. Tables are well spaced, the noise level is very low, the staff is lovely and the food is quite tasty. The chive dumplings are delicious as are the garden rolls with peanut sauce. We order from the "Absolute Healthy" page of the menu which has a nice selection of vegetarian dishes. One of the staff is an expert pastry chef. There is a glass counter inside with a display of these beautiful small pastries.

Although the food was great, the staff were accommodating and the atmosphere was quiet to accommodate 18 family members celebrating a birthday lunch, we found that a few weeks later fraudulent charges were made on all our credit cards in the amount of hundreds of dollars. If you wish to dine here, pay by cash and NOT by credit card.

Found the restaurant on Yelp search. Nice ambiance; I liked that tables were spaced widely so we didn't feel cramped. Ordered the crab dumplings and satay; both very good. We followed with 3 entrees: crispy duck, red chicken curry and shrimp pad Thai. All were tasty especially the shrimp. Nice wine and cocktail options well priced.
I'll go again to try their healthy options.

Overall just average. Both apps we had were very good, the Larb and the Thai dumpling. The Kaprao and crispy duck were underwhelming. No complaints with service.
