Maybe it was an off-night--my friend and I had terrible food. We ordered the Seafood with Thai Basil. It came in an unappetizing brown sauce; vegetables were overcooked --there weren't many, and they were hard to find because they blended in with the brown sauce. Overpowered with the basil, except the dish had a slightly greasy taste. Just so you... More

The food here is fantastic and the prices are great. They have some of the best Pad Thai in the area and their salad with ginger dressing is delicious. Everything I've tried here has been yummy! The staff is very friendly. They have a small but adequate eating area. Take out is great as well. Definitely a more casual atmosphere... More

Please note this is not a 5 star rating meaning it's up there with Ruth's Chris or places of that caliber - but for a small Asian restaurant this was wonderful. Tonight we visited for the first time, and it won't be the last. We had the fried dumplings, catfish, Pad Thai, and the NY steak. The food was all... More

We have been eating here several times a year for many years, only because it is about 40 miles from home. BUT, each time we go it is a 'dancing in your mouth' experience in a small but very clean and pleasant environment. We get monthly coupons for discounts but would go even if they didn't. Price is very good,... More

Tangerine Café is in a strip shopping center. The atmosphere is pretty bland. The other thing I noticed was there was no Asian Staff at least out front. The food however was really good as was the service. Very extensive menu with a great variety. Ordered Mizo Salmon and it was really good. Service was really good but they almost... More

We have eaten every dish on the menu and have never been disappointed. We live lunch but often go for dinner also. Truly a hidden gem

Always delicious food! We love the macadamia chicken dish. Also, the Mongolian beef is great. Small place though, so you may experience a wait on the weekend.

Always great food! Have had lettuce wraps, macadamia chicken and curry fish, along with Korean beef all are excellent. We usually do take out from here as the place is small and does not serve wine (only beer)

Despite my idiot spell checker changing VERMACELLI to "vertical in my earlier review, I hope the message got across- these folks put out well above average pan-asian food at reasonable prices with excellent service.
