Biryani Lemongrass Chicken dish was delicious--grilled marinated chicken with Lemongrass and yellow curry rice(takes additional time because they grill the chicken for each order but it's so good)!! The server was clearly very busy so it may not be a place you can quickly grab a meal since it is a small and very busy (and rightly so!) restaurant but it's worth the short wait for the server and kitchen.

After walking around around on a Monday where places were full, one apparently overwhelmed, and feeling like as much as we love PT, not every place had to try to be "foodie" just to jack the prices... stopped here. I admit for some reason from the look of it, I'd never stopped. Mistake.

Friendly service, felt very welcome unlike another spot. Crab Rangoon was nicely crisp, not greasy and a good starter. LOVED the noodle soups. Very much want to come back and try other items like the street food section.

They aren't as high prices as some places and have a nicely full menu without trying to over achieve. So don't be a snob. It's a nice place. Kudos from a Seattle resident.

It pains me to right this review.

It was a Sunday evening, 6pm. There were about 30 people in the restaurant. Most outside on the patio.

Service was very slow. Seated quickly but 10 minutes to take drink order another 10 to take dinner order. 40 minutes from entry to eating. Staff apologized and said it was a busier than usual night.

Presentation was average, taste was average, little on the watery side, not as creamy as I am used to.

I have a fairly high tolerance for restaurants, but here are 2 big no no's for me.
- Tables were clean but patio deck, railing and umbrella's have obvious and substantial signs of seagulls being present (yes that kind of present). I would guess they had not been power washed for some time. I get it, this is a port town, but lets be honest this is a food establishment, not the local fishing pier. A simple nightly power wash with bleach could make this a none item.
- second, there is a bizarre order on the patio. Wofts of something not good.

Other challenges, inside restaurant was pretty hot and the view from the patio is a parking lot and the backside of shops.

I would have left but I was extremely hungry.

The place is small, but the staff are very friendly, and the service/food is one of the best in Port Townsend. They share a deck area with a little stage area, so musical groups come and play there while you are dining.

Lovely atmosphere, outside deck cool and shady on a hot summer day. I'd have to try more of the dishes to give a comprehensive review. They were generous with the scallops on my dish and I appreciated that my husband's sweet-and-sour dish was not shockingly red and gooey with cornstarch as I've seen in other places. The ice cream freezer stopped working, so we have to go back for dessert!
