They had a special appetizer (samosa) of the day that was simply scrumptious. We also had Pad Thai that was very authentic tasting and full of flavor. The yellow curry with chicken was yummy too. Definitely will go back and often.

It is a very small place. Decor is done well. As soon as you enter, you feel like you are in a totally different world. They have nice windows through which you can still be connected to the outside world.
That said, food was really good. I had tom yum soup, stir fried veggies and coconut rice. It was sumptuous meal. I was full but still craving for more.
Service was really great as well.

Lots of great food. Had the Pad Thai. Good spice, fresh ingredients. Not much rush at dinner, so it's a good time to visit.

This is a slightly better than average Thai restaurant - all the standard flavors, but all available with crab, shrimp, or 'mixed seafood' that doesn't include cod! The crab house rice is great, but ask for the basil rice with crab (not technically on menu) for a little different spin. Fast service, not particularly friendly at lunch with the crush but very welcoming at night when they are never busy. Bring some friends, share the dishes, and have a relatively inexpensive but tasty meal.

My advice: Don't go here for lunch. It's busy, there's a line, and they won't seat you until your entire party arrives. That's not surprising, given that this restaurant rests in a restaurant park of sorts at the center of business buildings surrounding it on all 3 sides.

Come here for dinner though, and it's a different atmosphere entirely. It's not as busy, the environment is casual and relaxing, and the staff have time to breathe and therefore treat you well. It's a great place for date night, friends, or even just to grab a meal for yourself. The food is great tasting - if you haven't been there, I recommend their catfish or duck curry! Reasonably priced, too.
