The menu selections are varied, also with choose your own ingredients options. We especially like the curries; for my last one I ordered grated cauliflower rather than rice and it was very good. The appetizers are very good, as are the home-made ginger ales.

We enjoyed our first visit so much that we returned two days later. The portions are a good size. The cost is very reasonable and the stir fry option of making your own was a particular favourite of mine. Staff were very helpful and knowledgeable. Great food.

Ate here twice on our recent trip to Chicago and although the restaurant was busy when we arrived I had no problem reserving a table via Tripadvisor. On both occasions we were served by Julia who was lovely. We all had the stir fry menu- cooked fresh, served hot and massive portions. Great prices and half price bottles of wine on Mondays. I highly recommend this place. I love Chinese/Thai food and this is the best I’ve had in a long time. Just wish we had one in Liverpool! Give it a go!

The good: great atmosphere, friendly staff, gluten free options, generous portions. Unfortunately, the food wasn’t special. Pad Thai too fishy, cauliflower rice too mushy, stir fry too spicy.

This place is amazing!! Better then Mongolian BBQ. Really good flavor and they entertain everyone’s eating habits. Very filling.
