We enjoyed our meal so much the 1st time, we couldn't wait to get back in town and return. As with our initial visit, tried a new dish and it was just as enjoyable as we remembered. Egg rolls were big, stuffed full and fried until golden and crisp. The chicken Kang Pa (classic Thai curry) was delicious and on... More

Great location on the water first off. Started with the spring rolls- grilled pork instead of shrimp. Very good? Then had the grilled pork, rice and vegetables. Pour over the fish sauce and yum! This is an authentic Vietnamese restaurant and they know what they're doing with this type cuisine. I don't know about the general tsu chicken or other... More

We visited tonight since people who we know have tried before. After debating between other Asian places, we visited and it was delicious. The service was fast and friendly. The view sunset by the lake was gorgeous.. Thank you!!

Wanted some good Thai food but didn't get it here. Stopped for lunch about 12:45. Large restaurant with an outdoor deck. We should probably have known as there were only two other tables in the whole place. Ordered spring rolls to start which were just O. K. I ordered General Tso chicken and wife ordered Thai Tom chicken soup. They... More

We took a chance and traveled south on 441 from our hotel, deciding to stop at the first restaurant with a good number of cars in the parking lot. Chopstix passed that "test". We choose to sit outside and enjoy the lake view. Food was good and well-priced. Service excellent. I heard the waiter at the adjacent table modifying dishes... More

Great view of the lake, great staff, and I would recommend the sesame chicken at level 10 its a wonderful spicy dish if your into hot food. Only thing is I wish they gave larger portions for the price of the food.

Thank becky51769
