Family dinner was good here. Nice ambiance and surroundings. Well-prepared Thai Dishes, including the Green Curry with Chicken, Pad Thai Noodles with Shrimp, Larb, and Tom Kha Soup. Authentic and flavorful dishes and kind, and accommodating staff. Prices are reasonable.

This might be the best Thai food I ever ate. The soup was from out of the world and their spicy cooking was exceptional. The service is also nice and the best part is the ambience of the restaurant.
