"I have to admit, I've only eaten one dish here, but it was SOOO good!  I got the Mango coconut curry with seafood (you can substitute chicken, beef, pork, or vegetarian).  It was delicious!  Huge chunks of fresh mango, and a generous serving of seafood."

"Very good food. Definitely one of the few restaurants that's actually good in the Lafayette/Moraga/Orinda area. I haven't had a single dish I haven't liked. Particularly good are the spring rolls, the avocado prawns, and the red curry. I can't think of a single place I'd rather eat in Orinda. Very nice, friendly service. Please give this place a try...Tried this place again tonight. Fried sweet potato appetizer was delicious, yellow chicken curry was delicious. Duck stir fry was so-so, tasty enough but nothing special. I like the red rice they use if you ask for brown rice..."

"...The restaurant was extremely clean and nicely furnished, and the waitresses were very friendly.
It seemed a little quiet when we first walked in, which automatically made me doubt the quality of the food, but I definitely walked out with a more positive impression.
I ordered from the chef's special-- yellow curry lamb (spicy) and a side order of the brown rice (a must try!), and my friends kept it safe and ordered the Pad Thai which they liked very much as well..."

"I did not expect to find anything beyond mundane in Orinda Village, but I was very pleasantly surprised to have a great lunch here...We ordered the chicken satay and fried spring roll appetizers, which exhibited both excellent flavor and quality preparation.  For our entrees, we ordered the pumpkin curry and the yellow curry, each also with chicken.  Again, very balanced and delicious..."

"I went here for lunch today with an old friend, and got the salmon green curry with eggplant lunch special. It was super good! I also tried their hot ginger tea, which was yummy. I love ginger! Service was friendly and fast, and the restaurant was cozy, clean, and pleasant. It's such a hidden gem among overpriced blah food in Orinda!"
