Lunch deal here is very good value. Good sized portions and tasty dishes. Starter plus a main course about $10. Smallish place and open area but well worth a try. We went with our son and coworkers who have lunched here a number of times....More

Four of us enjoyed a moderately priced, tasty, family style Asian dinner of mixed traditional and fusion dishes. Fresh, well prepared vegetables in each dish with chicken and shrimp and a good selection of local beer. A gem on east Hennepin!

It's extremely rare for me to look at a menu & have such indecision. I wanted to try a host of different things, and alas, was only there for a quick snack. The vegetable samosas are dynamite with fabulous mint chutney. My friend had spring...More
