We loved this place. Our food was fresh and delicious. My husband had the steak and I had pasta with shrimp. They were outstanding! The Painkillers were just that- killer good! The staff was friendly. The live music was fun. Loved everything!!!

We ate here on our recent visit. Both the shrimp curry and thai chicken were fantastic. We ate in the bar area. The staff (Kim!) were just wonderful. Live music was also provided. Would highly recommend this restaurant!
