Always amazing. Lucky to have this as my local Thai restaurant. The 'Hot Basil Stir Fry' is one of my favorite menu items. And a great staff just tops it off.

My pad thai with tofu was-um-not good. The noodles were okay, but tofu takes on the flavors it was cooked with. My tofu was white, mushy, and cold. Almost like it was added as an afterthought to the dish. A vegetable rice dish was much...More
