Some of the best - and most consistent - Asian food in Olympia

They do a good job with tofu and a variety of curries, noodle, and rice dishes. Great for takeout. You won't be disappointed. Even better, if you come back, you'll find they're consistently good, which is sometimes a challenge in Olympia.

OK food, but employees say pad thai can't be made vegetarian

Nothing is marked as vegetarian or vegan here but because of reviews on Happy Cow I asked if pad thai could be made vegan. They said no because they use a sauce pre made with fish. You can still order it with tofu. There are salad rolls with tofu as well - seems vegan. I have no idea about the peanut sauce as didn't ask. The food is inexpensive but the quality is so-so.

I'm not sure if they have any truly vegetarian options as I didn't take the time to go over the whole menu with the staff. I think the other reviews are either out of date or I asked the wrong employee here, maybe others know a sauce substitute that can be used.

They did tell us which bubble teas are dairy free and the bubble tea is good.

Pros: Inexpensive and wide variety of menu options. , Staff very friendly.

Cons: Might not be vegetarian /vegan?, Nothing clearly labeled.

Love this place!

When I'm in Olympia I eat here as often as possible! It's the kind of place you order at the counter and they bring your food. I love the green and red curries as well as the pineapple rice! Sometimes I get the Fresh Rolls w/ tofu but they are about $5 a piece so a little much for me. I haven't had the tofu in the curry I always get the veggies next time I'll try the tofu. They have a tea machine that has unsweetened, sweetened, green (and something else) that I really love. They have real silverware and cups so I don't feel like I am wasting plastic and paper here.

Pros: Yummy!, Price, Hours

Cons: Limited seating
