Anything on the menu is Great. See meet our friends here when we travel. Fresh seafood is the best. Just ask what they would recommend you can not go wrong.

Consistently good service and good food. We typically order the bento box lunch feature. There are a good variety of choices to add to the basic package. We enjoy different combinations each time!

Good location in North Nanaimo. Nice clean/modern ambiance. Lots of items on the menu. Food was excellent and very fresh. Service was also very good. Salmon and tuna were top picks.

Great Service - Food was fresh - high quality and seasoned very well. Reasonably priced. I still wonder what the structure was prior to being a restaurant ???

Late lunch started with TomYum soup, was very good and as close to authentic as we have had. Cannot comment beyond the rice and noodle dishes but the ones we have tried are good and more than adequate portions. Service also good, prices are reasonable,...More
