The torches outside mark the spot. You can choose to sit outside or in the warmth of the interior decor. The menu is not exhaustive but everything is really tasty. The spicing is subtle and the dishes and their presentation are authentic.

Really nice place. Attentive service. Sate combo was wonderful. Corn fritters tasty. Duck curry was very good but all the curries were delicious. The soups were yummy. The assorted grilled seafood was worth it. Good wine list.
