Summer Canteen

A unique blend of southeast Asian food from Vietnam, Thailand and Burma. We offer authentic dishes as well as some fusion with a twist. Great wine selections. Our beers are from craft breweries which are paired with delicious Asian appetizers.

"We have happily done take-out from Summer Canteen since it opened several years ago, but our in-house dining experience there on Feb. 14th was a huge disappointment. The Nibbler appetizer was interesting, but drowning in a sweet syrup. The beef salad was also over-dressed and the beef was so tough as to be inedible. The Orange Chicken arrived with the wrong rice which was quickly replaced, but the chicken was dry and gummy, and again swimming in the orange coating. They were busy, but that is no excuse for poorly prepared food. Our take-away lesson was stick to take-out and the two dishes - chicken pad Thai and chicken curry - that we've always ordered in the past. Granted we should have sent our food back, but rather than make a fuss, we just chalked it up to an unfortunate experience on what was certainly a way off night."
