Went there for a Christmas party of 50+ and had a good time. They were very accommodating and the food was just ok. The service was really good and the price was reasonable.

Needed a restaurant close to the airport. Although the place was quiet we still decided to join. Friendly people and good food. Don't expect very fancy / sophisticated diner. An enjoyable environment where you can have a good evening.

We've been coming here since we moved to Millbrae 21yrs ago. Few years ago, Thai food was finally available on the menu which made us come here more often. Food is good! Great staff and it's a family-owned business. Reasonably priced and a good value for your money. The only negative part is that they are short of staff from... More

The owner of this local restaurant is very sweet, and treats all her customers as if they were guests in her home. She takes great pride in serving fresh fish in sandwiches, pastas, and main courses, as well as Thai favorites, all prepared fresh to order. The restaurant is located in a shopping center so parking is easy. Lots of... More

They pride themselves on good food. Prices are reasonable. Atmosphere is relaxing. Parking is not a problem. Great place to go for a nice quiet dinner. Only issue might... More

Very good food at an average price, better food than I anticipated for the price. Five course meal is not an overwhelming amount of food, more like a sampler of several dishes, but we enjoyed it. Asian style restaurant, and food is as expected for the atmosphere/ethnic nature

I've been coming to this restaurant for years and I love it. Their seafood is fresh and they're happy to make any changes you like to make it just the way you want it. The service is very friendly and it feels like family. It's a bit hidden away in the back of a shopping center but the locals all... More

A good place for a tasty meal at a reasonable price. The two sisters who own this place take great pride in their fresh fish, but also take great care of their customers. They remember your name and what you like when they welcome you, and they make sure your meal is made to order. Free parking nearby is a... More
