Spicy and delicious! Would definitely recommend. Tip: I love spice and I ordered the standard spice level and it was HOT. Had to order a Thai tea to cool myself down

Nice Food

4.0/ 5

Simply fantastic food and service. In spite of the covid chaos, this is one restaurant that didn’t drop its standards or miss a beat. They resumed indoor dining with proper distancing, masking and a sanitation station. They also built one of the nicer parklets in town with cozy compartments, ample ventilation and a few strategically placed heat lamps. As to the chow… Don’t miss the signature tea-leaf salad, especially if you love crunchy garlic. Even if you don’t like tea or leaves or salad or garlic, Just Get It. You will thank me. The oh-so-tender Mongolian beef was spot-on, deftly blending the right amounts of sweet, heat and meat. The pork and pumpkin curry was earthy, unctuous and generously proportioned, making for a warm and cozy dish as the fog curled over our outdoor table. The subtly flavored coconut rice was perfectly executed and thoughtfully topped with fried-shallot rings. Speaking of crunchy garlic, a whole bunch more of it made an encore appearance in the dry-fried string beans, which arrived later than the rest of the meal. We had them for dessert, competing for the crispy bits until every last crunch was consumed. So, long, Cheetos, we have a new favorite snack.
