Good Asian food, friendly waiters, refined menu, worth the price. Try the wine, a bit more expensive but really tasty!

Great looking restaurant with upstairs lounge chairs for when you have to wait for your table. It is a popular restaurant that serves delicious Thai food. I had the green curry with chicken. On the menu it said "2 peppers" as in hot and hot it was but still very tasty.

We always love going back to 'A Food Affair' because of the great service and the delicious food. The menu is changed often enough to accommodate regular visitors like us.
