This is a very modern, very minimalist, but very accommodating middle of the road restaurant specializing in "Asian" food. They do Korean and Japanese with equal adeptness. Their signature dish is Bibimbap hot stone bowls. They come in a large variety of combinations. The allure is not only the vast array of options but the stone bowl. They use the same bowl to cook the dish as the bowl which is served at your table. The contents are irresistibly umami tasting. The rice tends to stick to the sides and bottom of the bowl, and this is the magic in the dish. You scrape off the rice and the result is great tasting and crispy rice. The sushi rolls were very very fresh and reasonably prices. Come to think of it, everything was reasonably priced. The Korean style short ribs were a little too sweet but it was to be expected. They do the sweet/spicy/salty combination that most people look for. There were so many things that I wanted to taste, like the Yaki soba noodles, bulgogi beef, and hot pot soup, There is something for everyone. The spartan decor somehow works with the style of the menu. The fact that many of the customers were obviously oriental, tells you that they are doing it right. I would go back in a heartbeat, and that is not usual for me. They also have a DenDen specilizing in fried chicken. I have to go there and report on it.

I had a very enjoyable dinner here. There were many options, but the server didnât really have any suggestions. The rolls sampler was really good. The orange seitan has a bit too much batter coating, so it was really filling and a bit sweet for me. The General Tso was better. All in all, a satisfying dining experience. If youâre looking for a place when vegans an omnivores can all leave happy and full, this place wonât disappoint.

Tong D is probably my favorite Thai restaurant. The food is always fresh and tasty, the staff friendly and accommodating, and the ambience serene. Special favorites are the spring rolls, scallop pancakes, crispy pad thai and basil fried rice.

We get takeout from Rim Nahm often, and sometimes we eat in the restaurant. The dining room is clean, and you can see into the kitchen where food is being prepared. There's a view of the bay out the back windows. Our standby favorites are the Pad Thai, chicken satay, fried rice with pork, and shrimps in a "blanket". Appetizers come with flavorful sauces. The BYOB arrangement helps keep the price down. (There's a liquor store around the corner, in case you forget to bring something.) This is our go-to Thai place, and I'm lucky that it's so close to where I live.

We went for lunch craving Thai food. We love Thai and have had it many times in many States. This is a Thai, Sushi, Chinese and Vietnamese combined in one Restaurant, usually a warning sign that none will stand out as amazing. I had Chicken w/Lemongrass. It was in a Peanut Sauce with huge pieces of green pepper and some onion. Just not very good, had no lemongrass flavor. Tom Yum Soup was unlike Tom Yum we have had hundreds of times. It was the wrong color, the wrong flavor and tasted like dish water, just an odd, unpleasant flavor. The Sushi Roll was good. Rice with the Chicken disk was an extra $1.85 (ridiculous....) . I would not come back nor would I ever recommend it to anyone. It was just "fair" at best, I'll give it an average versus poor because the Sushi was decent.
I've gotten take out from here couple of times. Food is mostly good, though not consistent. Delivery time usually is around 45 to 60 minutes or so. I've gotten the garlic chicken, beef with broccoli, curry style chicken and kung pao chicken. Even though its mentioned that the garlic and curry style chicken are spicy, it really isn't. Also have gotten the tom yum soup, wanton and hot and sour soup. Tom yum was pretty oily though the other two were pretty good. Also their valentine roll is pretty good. Overall decent spot, wish they were more consistent and had shorter delivery times.

Sometimes you just need some standard Chinese food for your soul. We came for dinner on a Tuesday night. I had a combination plate of chicken fingers, chicken wings and crab rangoon along with wonton soup (the soup came with it!). My Mom had the pork egg fu young combination and also the wonton soup. I wasn't expecting everything to be so good. My Mom and were very pleased. Jennifer our waitress was friendly and accommodating. She also makes a delicious Mai Tai. Atmosphere is average, but at that these prices and quality of the food, it's fine. We will definately will go back.

we reserved the day before, expecting 14 people, with no problem. there was no problem changing the reservation to 8 the day of (a tuesday). they were ready for us and had pushed some tables together. we were seated immediately. the server was friendly and attentive. maybe they don't have a lot of staff on tuesdays or maybe someone was out sick; either way the server said she was working alone. we didn't feel neglected and she did check on us several times. everyone (including two people who really know good Chinese food when they find it) enjoyed their food. portions were large - everyone took something home. everything arrived hot without too long a wait. we had ordered several dishes to share and the waitress kindly offered to line them up on an empty table like a buffet, or leave them on our table to pass around. prices were consistent with most other Chinese places in the area. we sat in a dining room and there is a bar room also.
