We were hungry, but not sure exactly what we wanted, hopped on the computer and typed in vegetarian Costa Mesa. This place popped up maybe fifth on the list with all good reviews so we decided to check it out and boy am I glad we did!
Love this place! Oh my gosh, the server was so cute and polite she offered so many suggestions for items for us to try, thanked us a million times, and was just wonderful overall.
We started out with the BBQ "pork" spring rolls that all the reviews have raved about, one word, YUM! To drink I ordered the green tea, which came with chrysanthemum flowers in the little pot, Mmmmm...so delicious and warming. My bf ordered the vegan Thai tea it was so good and did not taste vegan at all, it just tasted like regular Thai tea.
For the main course I ordered the #45, which is the Special Thai Style Soy Chicken/Beef cooked in a Thai sauce with onions, pineapple, bell pepper, & water chestnut; I opted for the "soy chicken". I got my meal before my bf and he told me to eat, so I did. I enjoyed my food....until I saw his meal.
He ordered the #38 Salted Beef Vermicelli, lemongrass "beef", rice noodles, lettuce, bean sprouts, peanuts, mint, & special sauce. Oh, my word this was so yummy, I wanted to push mine to the side and eat all of his, I didn't of course because this would have started an all out war as we were both famished. This does not mean that my meal was not good I just liked his better.
Items on the menu average about $6.95-$8.95 and portions are generous enough to have leftovers.
great taste, good value, friendly staff
