It consisted mostly of noodles in some bad tasting sauce, some shrimp, hardly any vegetables, a sprinkling of peanuts, and a large clump of parsley. I salvaged the... More

The restaurant's appearance is shabby and needs to be cleaned up a bit more in my opinion, but the waitress was very kind and helpful and the food was out of this world. I would recommend the vermicelli noodles. If you like spicy food, they can give you a spicy sauce. If not, the sweet sauce was a big hit... More

This little restaurant is hidden in an old strip mall where Food Lion used to be and new grocery store will open in July of 2015.

Walked in to an empty smelly restaurant with filthy carpets and two employees practically nodding off at a table. Walked out.

I eat at this restaurant every time i'm in town, a few times a year for several years. The food is very good, simple, good price. It's not very fancy and ambience is a bit dated, but it works. Curry chicken vermicelli is the favorite.

My favorite is the spicy curry chicken on vermicelli. Order it extra spicy for a real treat. I love mom who runs the place. Great food and excellent value.
