We loved the food here. Both times we've been the entrees were very yummy. They make some of the best crab Rangoon around. The service was great.

I reviewed Cre-Asian a few months ago--but wanted to note that they have added a Chinese menu. My favorite on this not-so-spicy menu is the Basil Eggplant. Inspired.

Cre-Asian is such a small restaurant, maybe referred to as a hole in the wall but it is a wonderful restaurant with unique flavors. I eat here often and also received catering from them for parties. Every time I order from Cre-asian the food is outstanding and consistent.

Servings are indeed generous but... More

I enjoyed the atmosphere here. The menu has a large variety of options, since this was my first time, I went with the basics...Orange Chicken...wishing I had gone off the beaten path...I think this place is a hidden gem and look to return again.
