We could not eat in because of a baby and took out. Excellent food, great service, well within promised time, all at a very reasonable price. Popias, green curry with tofu, shrimp noodles were all very tasty, not too spicy and of good quantity.

Rarely crowded, always quiet with tasteful low music, attentive service, very good food, reasonable prices normally and irresistible happy hour prices, street parking always close, a place for locals to enjoy, I come here frequently and am greeted as a friend. A word of warning....More

Decent food but not strong flavoring. Nothing like authentic Thai cooking.... you do not pick up any fish sauce or much heat in dishes that should have those flavors.

Went there for a quick lunch on Saturday. The food arrived so fast that it could not possibly have been cooked - it was "constructed" out of previously cooked ingredients. Pad Thai- the chicken was dry and had no flavor; the sauce was so sticky...More

Over all the food was good, but disappointed in the soup (them cha gai). The corn cakes were very good and the fresh roll of vermicelli, tofu and vegetables was just ok. Sliced duck with lychee was very good but all the other items my...More
