Waitress answered all questions we had about the menu. The Chicken Satay came with a peanut dipping sauce that also had lemon grass in it- it was the best sauce I have had!! Shrimp Pad Thai was OK.

Very disappointed. Food was very bland and when we asked for some chili sauce we were given a tiny saucer with about 1 tablespoon of sauce. We were charged an additional $5.50 for this.
