This is my favorite Thai restaurant. I always say that the fragrance of their dishes alone is satisfying, but the eating is even better. We had a number of appetizers we shared, all of which were excellent. Then we each had a different main course....More

I went there for a business lunch. Didn't know what to expect but was mildly surprised. I can't say the food is authentic but it's tasty. It was busy during lunch but not too noisy for conversation.

Six adults at dinner. Pleasant surroundings, good service. Ordered drunken noodle with mild heat since I had not ordered it previously at this restaurant and didn't know how they spiced. It came awash in brown liquid with limp noodles. Totally unappealing and visually repulsive. I...More
