The most yummy Asian street food I have tried for the last 10 years. Very nice curry noodle, similar to Thai style. The most fabulous chicken fried noodle with nice charcoal flavor.

This restaurant was open with quick pleasant service on a day that many restaurants were not open. It was also walkable from our motel where we no longer had a car.

In the area for work for a few weeks & have ended up eating here more than once already. The menu is quite extensive, very reasonably-priced & good portion sizes too. The food has come out quite quickly every time & tastes great! Handy hint:...More
