The best food I have ever had. I have had vegan food at other asian restaurants from 5 dollar to 35 dollar and nothing competes. The best fried rice I have ever had ( you have to request no egg). Not only is it all natural home made food the owners are very flexible and will make a dish too your specifications, ex fried rice no egg little soy sace and add broccoli and tofu, and they will make it. They have two curries which you can ask about if you enjoy curry comes with some awesome cabbage and cucumbers in some sort of vinegar. Far and away the best thing is the vegetable mardine wich is a vegan soup that they serve; I eat alot and this fills me up. It is a mix of vegetables and rice noodles in a thai sauce served with steamed rice on the side the portion is hefty to say the least; all for the range of ten dollars, I think its 8.99. Since going vegan I thought i had to say good bye to a few things a couple of them were drinks (for health reasons won't drink sodas and teas and lemonade are usually nasty) and appetizers, but they have a dish called pea leaf and all it is is pea leaf cooked in a thai sauce you can order it as an appetizer because it takes less time to cook than any other dish a real asian favourite.They also have a green tea that is the best tea i have ever had, and for dessert we have ourselves sticky rice with coconut milk sauce on top really the best vegan dessert i have had. So you can get it all here by my count they have fried rice veggi dish, and vegetable mardine that are vegan the 2 curries may or may not be vegan but they are some sort of vegetarian you should ask; if you know what curry is the taste grows on you, but if you grew up with it than you'll like it. and 1 dessert made with coconut milk, but like I said they are very flexible and will modify most things on the menu. Just let them know your needs. The restaurant is clean and spacious they occasionally have famous singers and artist from they're home land come and perform will charge a cover but it is definetly an experience. The people here are nice and the wait for food is usually under twenty minutes all freshly cut vegetables and freshly made soup so if you bring a big party expect a bit longer wait. The location is easy to find and is one of the few restaurants in this area that is vegan friendly. Worth a shot and if your like most people that come here you will find a dish you like and will want to eat it as often as you come here.
