The food is excellent. We have tried many items on the menu and have not been disappointed! This is one of our go-to places for sure. Saturday eves are nice with the music. We went on a Sunday and it was a bit quieter but still a nice amount of people.

My husband and I went to COCO for a date night. The restaurant was only half-filled, which we found surprising for a Saturday night at 7:15pm. The service was really good, and the food was quite tasty. Nice wine list (although on the smaller side), but a HUGE menu.

I asked for my panang spicy. They made it spicy. It was much appreciated.

We love this restaurant! Keep going back with different friends. One of our favorite happy hours from 5-7pm daily. Happy hour special menu is limited during winter season but still several nice options including better wines and top shelf liquors. The sushi rolls are not on the happy hour during season but priced fairly. The food is consistently very good. Pretty ambiance.

A New Years Eve surprise! We booked this restaurant last minute for a quick NYE dinner while visiting our son in Ft Lauderdale. We walked into this restaurant that was all decked out to welcome the new year, 100’s of gold and silver balloons, hats and crowns on the table and live music. The server was friendly and extremely knowledgeable about the menu. The sushi melted in your mouth and even though we loved all of our dishes, the short ribs were amazing. We will definitely make this one of our go to spots when we come to town again. It was a great easy to start off the new year!

We have been to this restaurant many times. Very conveniently located in the Harbor Beach shopping plaza near to our condo building. Food and service are always very good. We will be making a new reservation again within the next couple of weeks with other friends.

Very disappointing night. All started well as we were seated fairly quickly and got initial drink and appetizers ordered but unfortunately service went poor quickly. We got our miso soup, duck noodle soup (terrific) and spicy calamari in less than 20 minutes. Not fast but it was Christmas night and they were busy.

Raul, our waiter, then disappeared for unknown reasons. Our orders were taken for entrees, but pretty sure they were not delivered to kitchen properly. Tables around us were feed and turned while we tried to wait patiently. Finally, we pinned a hostess down and got her to reorder? or fix our orders for us. We got the house Pad Thai, Lobster Pad Thai and the short ribs at around 8 pm. We had arrived at 6:17 from the bill. Food was tasty but honestly 2 hours for Chinese is really a stretch. They realized the disaster as they did refund us 30% without our asking but still very frustrating as the food just doesn't make up for very poor service. We left at 8:30.

I'd suggest a prix menu for next Christmas as one could tell the staff was far taxed beyond their means do the extreme volume of orders with only a few restaurants open for Christmas.

Food is okay. Service fell apart the 25th of Desember. Too many customers, too few wait staff and managers overwhelmed.
They are trying, but not hard enough.

One of our favorite Thai restaurants in east Fort Lauderdale. Quality of the food and service is top notch. They have a nice bar and a happy hour with 1/2 off wine and cocktails and select menu items which runs to 7 pm. The food is fresh and nicely presented and the side booths lend themselves to an intimate, quiet setting for conversation.

Layers and layers of tantalizing Asian flavors that explode in your mouth to invite you to a very special gastronomic experience you will not soon forget.
