The pricing for their menu items are high and sometimes near double for certain items offered at other similar type restuaruants in DuPage County Illinois. I didn't find the rare steak soup for $11.00 the same as real owned Vietnamese soup shops offer. The interior was well decorated and everyone was nice and helpful however pricing is high, portions small.

As you enter this "pan-asian" noodle shop you feel like you have entered both a comfy neighborhood shop as well as a formal restaurant. The shop is new to the Southwest Michigan shoreline. The owner has much experience in New Buffalo, MI with years as owner/manager of Brewsters Italian Bistro just around the corner. The menu is quite extensive with items from many regions of China, Vietnam, Korea, and Thailand. One of my favorites was the simple and refreshing Thai Ice Tea. Refreshing after a day in the sun. The items are equally good as carry out as well as sit down dining. The restaurant is well suited for a small bistro, and the entry is spacious and relaxed to handle a crowd. Prices range from $5 Curry Pie (Thai) to $13 Claypot Catfish w/ Caramel Sauce and rice (Vietnam). One of the favorites of mine was theDrunkard's Noodles (Thai). The Buddha's Baguette was an interesting mixture of Vietnamese and French in a sandwich of Roasted pork or garlic chicken w/ pickled veggies, cilantro, cucumber and sesameaioli. Yummers!

Lastly, the staff seemed very helpful and knowledgable of the menu when novices like myself kept asking questions.

Pros: Ambience, menu selection, service, fresh ingrediants

Cons: one block off of the beaten path from the downtown district
