I just wanted to share my new neighborhood restaurant find. Got the menu from my child's pediatrician earlier this week. The restaurant menu states they serve "Contemporary Asian Cuisine", and there is a limited time Grand Opening 25% discount for delivery orders over $20 (offer expires Aug 31). We've been ordering from them for the past 4 days testing their dishes, and so far, the only disappointment we had was the fresh roast duck roll starter. The roll itself tasted good - it's more like a duck version of the Vietnamese summer roll. However, IMO the sauce that came with it did nothing to complement the dish - it was neon orange in color and it left my mouth in shock from the high acid content, which also released a searing heat from the peppers that numbed my tastebuds. I had to take several gulps of ice cold water to recover.

So far, here's what we've tried off their delivery menu:

Wild Mushroom Dumplings - ginger soy dip
Crispy Calamari - spicy mango salsa
Salmon spring rolls - basil and mint sauce
Fresh roast duck roll - wrapped w/ rice paper and herbs
Crispy Crab and Pea Dumplings - sweet & sour indonesian sauce

Indonesian Mee Goreng (both my DH and son loved this - they've ordered it 2x already)
Singaporean Bee Hoon - not out of this world, but decent
Basil-Spiked noodles - broad rice noodle w/ beef or chicken and bokchoy - I enjoyed this dish as it was nothing like the greasy chinese stir-fry noodles from other places
Thai thin rice noodle soup - seafood in spicy lemongrass/kaffir broth - pretty good - the noodles were not boiled limp and soggy
Asian Style grilled chicken - red pepper and cilantro

Other items on the menu that we'll be trying soon:
Summer vegetables and tofu in coconut curry
Green Curry Shrimp cooked in casserole pot
Indian Curry Squid sauteed w/ veggies and herbs
Lemongrass Crusted Fillet of Snapper - coconut lime sauce
Spice-crusted Scallops - saffron coconut sauce
Whole Grilled Sea Bass - galanga flower and sweet shallot sauce

Not sure if they have a different dine-in menu as we haven't gone there in person yet. So far, we're enjoying their deliveries.
