Nha Sang - (Kinda) New Pan-Asian in Burnsville

I'm kinda surprised that a search of this board didn't return anything on this kinda new place in Burnsville - it's been open for at least a few months.

Nha Sang is in a little, semi-hidden strip mall, just north of Hwy 13 on the east side of Nicollet Ave - a half-mile or so east of 35W. The website is here:

Lots of Thai, Vietnamese, Chinese, and Japanese dishes, but also quite a few TIbetan entrees. I went there for lunch a few days ago, and saw that they also have a lunch buffet M-F (didn't see it mentioned on their website). I hadn't planned on getting the buffet - I was going for Momo - but two other dishes I was interested in - "Tibetan Spicy Chicken" and "Cranberry Curry" - were both available on the buffet, so, at $5.99, I gave it a shot.

The buffet was not your typical suburban Minnesota Asian buffet - although it did have the prerequisite cream cheese puffs, egg foo yung, and gloopy-looking chow mein - it was small, but the entrees were good - well-seasoned - the Tibetan Spicy Chicken is probably the spiciest thing I've had on an Asian buffet since coming to Minnesota, and similar to "lemongrass chicken" I've had at several Vietnamese places around the area. The cranberry curry was very good, also - kinda Thai curry tasting, with a little tartness (and an odd pink color) from the cranberries.The other entrees - Mongolian pork, beef and broccoli, and a few others - were also above par for a buffet.

I'm looking forward to going back to try more stuff - anyone else been there?
