You don't get what you pay for here. I ordered a vegetarian stir fry that was just under $12. That's a lot for lunch. The waitress was a little pushy trying to get me to add a meat or tofu. She also asked several times if we wanted to order drinks. It seemed like she wanted to run up the... More

We've been coming here for over ten years and the food is good and the service is prompt. They will work with you on vegetarian request and customize offerings. Curry is good as well as their soups. It seems their prices have creeped up to the point the price value relationship may be out of balance.

None of our party of four enjoyed their meal. Green Curry with seafood (cannot be ordered with fish) was thin, neither flavorful nor spicy, full of under-cooked veggies and overcooked seafood. The muscles were the only thing in the mix I enjoyed. Very disappointing. Daughters ordered an assortment of sushi rolls. They were not impressed. I tried one piece which... More

Went here for lunch and at first I thought it was the dinner menu because of the prices. I ordered Pad Thai and got a dinner-sized portion that was one of the best tasting Pad Thai dishes I've had in a long time. My only complaint about the food is that the bean sprouts are supposed to be cooked with... More

Four family members had a fabulous meal starting with the fresh basil rolls. Since 2 of our group are regulars we took their advice. My husband & I had the Masaman curry - very light curry & not too spicy. Comes with potatoes which my husband had along with scallops. I had with peppers/onions & chicken. Our other family members...

I always enjoy my meal at this restaurant. Their pad thai is amazing and I really enjoyed the edamame we had as an appetizer. I went with 4 other people and had no idea they would add an 18% gratuity. I then gave her 20% tip since that what I usually do when I go to a place to eat... More

Good menus, including a children's menu. The lunch menu is reasonably priced, dinner is more standard prices. Our server was attentive to our need for a high chair, and brought crayons, etc for the child. The children's menus included beverage of choice, including juices. I have been here twice, both for birthday meals. Each time the server (the same one--she... More
