Oakland, Ca


To our friends and loyal customers,

Thank you so much to everyone who has supported us over this crazy time and over the years.  Can you believe it will be 10 years for us in September?  When this is over, I want to hug and drink with you all.  I am so looking forward to that day.

I wanted to thank you from the bottom of my heart for your love and support of our little restaurant.   It has been beautiful to see acts of kindness and unity in our community. There's so much love in this little town that we love so much.  We are so grateful to be able to serve you and keep our little family restaurant running during this difficult time.

As a small business owner and "boss" to 10 employees, I feel obligated and responsible for their well beings and livelihoods.  I understand the need for social distancing and flatten the curve in order to stop the spread of the virus and to protect the public and our staff.  

How do you know what to do?  The decision to stay open for takeout to serve our community as long as we can do so safely and in a way that can help support some of our staff and hopefully keep half of them employed was not an easy decision...

  • I have decided not to take in any income and my operation manager have taken a reduced salary to keep our kitchen running
  • We are pooling all the tips to ensure everyone makes a minimum wage
  • We are selling T-shirts and Merchandise and all the proceeds go to the front of house and back of house staff
  • We are selling gift cards and 50% of the gift cards go to our employees funds
  • Every employee can come in for a free meal everyday and for as long as they need

How you can help:

  • Tip a little extra, if you can afford it to help all of our staff
  • Come in and pick up your meal instead of ordering from an online take-out but if you can't it's great, too.
  • Buy our Oakland Strong T-shirt. All 100% of the proceeds from the t-shirt sell go to our staff
  • Buy Wine, Beer, & Cocktails with your food order
  • Buy an East Bay cookbook from us.  All 100% of the proceeds from the cookbook go to our staff.  We have the fav Hue Dumplings and Coconut Curry Catfish recipe you can make at home during this time

The safety of our staff and the public is my main concern. We are holding strong and will continue to keep up with our hygiene game and health measures to the highest standard.

Thank you all for your love and ongoing support.  We will get through this together.

Oakland STRONG!

Letter from our fearless leader

Covid-19 Announcement: 3/17/2020

In light of Monday's Shelter In Place mandate by our local government and force shut down to all restaurants or cut back service due to Covid-19.  

We understand the need for social distancing in order to flatten the spread of the virus and to protect the public and our staff. This will sadly put most of our staff out of work hopefully just temporarily during this difficult time.

We will be Closed today Tuesday, 3/17 and Wednesday, 3/18 to reassess our situation . We will be Open on Thursday, 3/19 for Take Out Only and hopefully online ordering with Caviar with limited menu.

We are trying to hold strong, none of us are sick. Our staff are all well and so are their families. We've upped our hygiene game and eliminated as many contamination risks we can identify. None of us have been touch with any symptomatic people. 

Thank you for your love and ongoing support.

We Will Get Through This Together.
