There are so many wonderful things on the menu that are gluten free; so nice to have choice for a change. Had the seafood crepe, and it was absolutely delicious! We were there for lunch but I think they've recently starting only opening for dinner.

Went there for lunch with friends. I have been there before and the food was good. We had spring rolls and won ton soup. The spring rolls were crisp and tasty, but the won ton was really disappointing. The broth was weak and tasteless, and...More

We had the lettuce wraps, chicken curry and spring roll and found them to be average. Taste was just ordinary - nothing to get excited about. The wonton soup at the next table looked incredible though, and service was friendly and fast.

We eat here about once a month and love the food. The dishes are fresh and hot and the service is always great. The crispy chow mein is a favorite and the curries are yummy. The only two drawbacks here are the prices which are...More

Generous portions arrived, fresh veggies lightly steamed, looked like it was going to be really good. But the sweet and sour pork dish had very little taste; there was an interesting looking sauce with almost no flavour. Pork (tenderloin) was tender but had little taste,...More
