Small, local restaurant with plentiful dishes that are tasty and reasonable. This is the perfect place if you are going to one of the art selections in the neighborhood, including Berkeley Rep, Freight and Salvage, several cinemas and the Jazz School.

The daily lunch menu is very affordable with its choice of spring roll or satay with one of their curries and rice dishes. I had the green eggplant curry with chicken which was very tasty.

My wife loves their coconut milk soup, so we went their with friends (10 people in all). Bottom line was that most of the food remained on the table and I noticed no one asked to take any of it home. The service was fine....More
