From the greeting by the host/hostess to the delivery of the check your pleasure is their business. The atmosphere is light and comfortable and the food is delicious. Seriously the best Hot and Sour Soup ever.

Lunch entrees come with soup or eggroll... no vegan option. Also, none of their Thai options could be made vegan either. Weakest chili spice ever... I asked for 15 out of a spicyness scale of 10 and it didn't even burn my tongue a bit....More
