I couldn't believe how reasonable this place was. It's in the Fan, so the place is small and hip. You MUST order the fish tacos. I've never had a fish taco this tasty. I don't know what they did to prepare them but oh my....More

This place is great! It has delicious food and great customer service! I miss their spongy tofu that they used to have in their malaysian curry, and don't like the american tofu that they substituted in it. Other than that, all their other dishes were...More

At first I wasn't too excited about the menu but I haven't tried this place yet so went in anyways. Needless to say, the food was great and I found myself ordering more and more of the different appetizers to sample. The food is fresh,...More

As owners of a Miniature Australian Shepherd, it can be difficult to find a restaurant that is dog-friendly. It is harder in Richmond, Virginia as we called several restaurants that were touted to be dog-friendly. One of those restaurants stated only service dogs with official...More

Popped in here on a recent visit to Richmond to grab some food after 11pm. Had the wings, Ken's fried thighs, veggie dumplings and spring rolls to share plus a lager for $30. Food and service were very good. Would definitely stop in again.

I got the chicken, shrimp, and beef satay skewers with edamame- and even though those were appetizer dishes- they were extremely small portions. A couple friends actually ordered entrees and they both complained about lack of flavor, and small portions also. It is a cool...More
