Steam Heat
We cook with the pure, intense heat of steam, which seals in nutrition and flavor without any added fat or calories.

Bao Calories
Our signature product, bao, average 179 calories each: a small balanced meal in a bun.

Quinoa
This ancient grain is not only a delicious alternative to rice, it's a nutrient power-house! Quinoa is high in protein and packed with essential amino acids, calcium, iron, and fiber. This satisfying grain is gluten-free and has less than HALF the calories of white rice.

Gluten Free
We have several naturally gluten free items on our menu. The Thai Curry Chicken Rice Bowl can be served over jasmine rice, delicious multi-grain rice, or steamed quinoa for an added nutritional punch. Thai Herb Broth can be enjoyed on its own or in our Thai Chicken Noodle Soup which is prepared using rice noodles, poached chicken and vegetables. Our Homemade Ginger Ale is made to order using fresh ginger, cane sugar, and a squeeze of lime juice.

Homemade Ginger Ale
Made on the premises from fresh ginger, our signature beverage has a delicious kick, calms the stomach and warms the system. We use 100% real cane sugar - no high frustose corn syrup. Try the pomegranate flavor for an extra boost of antioxidants.

Rice/Energy Rice
Our standard is the finest long-grained jasmine rice from Thailand; but we also offer an alternative Energy Rice which includes Thai brown rice, red bran rice, black-hulled glutinous rice and goji berries.

Thai Herb Broth
Considered a cure for the common cold by many cultures, our nutritious Thai Herb Broth is infused with fresh ginger and lemongrass. It can be carried and sipped like a cup of tea.
