Wonderful Asian food and a popular, exciting vibe. Excellent server who gave great advice. The laksa was superb as was the curry chick pea which comes w amazing warm naan bread. Also loved the fresh, flavorful papaya salad. My only criticism is if you want to take your time ask them to space out your choices. Ours were delivered a bit too quickly to savor each course. Definitely share!!

Great appetizers: Kaya toast with coconut jam- yummy when dipped in small bowl of soft egg dip; tasty grilled chicken wings, and a noodle dish. Good grilled Chinese broccoli and 3 small pieces of grilled corn. The naan bread was tasty but the chopped escargot was tasteless although the lime helped. The entrees were disappointing in flavor: black cod in broth with romaine lettuce bits- served in small bowls; grilled spicy lamb breast on rice and another entree of beef on rice- both of these served with the meat on top of the rice then the wait staff demonstrated how to chop up the meat and seasonings into the rice and serve. Good service

Tows the line between every ethnic flavorful cuisine one can possible beg for. Not Thai, Indian, etc., but the perfect fusion of all.

I have been here many times and at some point I thought they might disappoint me or the food would be less than exceptional... That has failed to happen and they continue to delight and surprise me!
