Try the Beef Randang, a slow-cooked-all-day coconut-based, lightly curried, caramalized beef dish served with Indonesian rice cakes and perfectly steamed, still slightly crunchy broccoli. You'll melt like this dish melts in your mouth. And guess what's more.....the dish is only $8.00.
I frequent Tan's Asian, maybe twice a month. The service is some of the friendliest I've encountered in the restaurant business, however, if it's a busy Thurs or Fri night you might wait up to 45mins for cooked-to-order dishes like Chow-mein or Curry with Onion. The servers have always come over and apologized profusely, and sometimes even served complimentary egg rolls. Even so, I think it's worth the wait on these nights if you're not bound by time-sensitive commitments in a 2hr time-span.
Tan's is a small place next to Esposito's, a landscaping company, so it's surrounded by an assortment of ferns, vines, and giant clay gardening pots. Kind of a unique feel for a restaurant entrance even if it may not have been intentional. The inside of the cafe is clean enough. No strongly themed decorations and they have several booths and your standard tables. Overall the atmosphere fits the "cafe" genre of restaurants. You'll keep coming back for the delicious food.
