I went there again today for lunch. Ping came over to speak with me. I have only been there 1 time before and it was almost 3 months ago. He asked if I had moved yet [remembering that I was to move to Winston Salem in November]. He commented that I ordered Chicken Fried Rice today, but had ordered Pad Thai last time. He even remembered what table I sat at last time!!
Ping is very pleasant and engaging without being suffocating. I observed him interacting with 2 different "regulars". He is definitely a people-person as well as a good business person.
The food is outstanding. The first time I ate there I had the lunch special Chicken Pad Thai. It started with a salad and 2 egg rolls. The peanut dressing on the salad was creamy and flavorful. The egg rolls were crisp and quite tasty.
As others have mentioned, the Pad Thai noodles were slender and perfectly cooked. I heard Ping tell 2 other tables that all the food is prepared to order and I don't doubt that at all. I told Ping I wanted it to be spicy without being so hot I couldn't taste the food. He said he would mark it at level 2. It was the perfect amount of spice!! The portion was plentiful, especially for a lunch portion. I had all I could eat without being miserable!!
Today the Chicken Fried Rice was very good. There was plenty of chicken and it was cooked well. The vegetables were cooked well, but still had a little crunch. The rice was cooked perfectly, not mushy, but not too "crunchy".
Now that I've moved to Winston Salem, I expect this will be at least a once-a-week dining spot for me!!
