This restaurant does not have a great atmosphere, but the food is good and it feels clean inside. Conveniently located on King Street. I recommend the papaya salad!

Really friendly staff and excellent food. I went in for lunch and had the wide-noodled pad thai special, which came with veggie soup and a spring roll. Everything was delicious! In fact, it was so good that I ordered some dishes to go for dinner.
