After reading a somewhat favorable review in the Globe on Friday, we tried this place Fri night.
It wasn't bad, but ultimately a bit pricey for what it is, I think. I'd rather just head to Chinatown, or to House Of Siam on Columbus. Both would be just as good (if not better) for less money.
We split the 'golden bags' for an appetizer which were actually delicious little fried yes, 'golden bags' stuffed with shrimp and vegetables, served with a plum dipping sauce. (Think shrimp rolls just shaped into little deep fried bags)
The menu is interesting; seems like they are trying to offer something for everyone So yes you can get Curry dishes as well as filet mignon and even the odd spaghetti and meatball dish. We decided to stick with the asian dishes. I got lemongrass chicken, b/f got a pork dish which also came with miso soup. Chicken was verging on 'too spicy' for me, (and I like spicy) but the flavors were pretty good and lots of fresh vegetables. He seemed to like the pork, and I thought it had a flavorful sauce.

Overall, just a bit too much $$ for what you get - I think the lemongrass chicken was around $11 and then you have to pay $1.50 extra for your choice of white/brown rice. The pork was closer to $16. I might venture there a bit more if prices were say, 20-30% less. I don't think you should pay $14 for a curry dish.

Two high points

1) Still BYOB which I love. Sat there with a cooler filled with beer..mmm

2)Excellent, attentive service. Very cheery waitress who was very friendly. Food came out quickly.
