Went to this place the other day since it was foggy and my roommate and I wanted soup...it was OK, by no means bad, however I would definitely recommend M&P Thai on the Bayfront over the Elephant. As I noticed other reviewers mentioning, which I...More

Not sure what it was exactly but this was definitely not one of our favorite places. No heat to the food at all, not even spicy. Had an appetizer, pad thai , chow mien and thai ice tea. Nothing memorial to bring us back
