While the menu is limited it is all very good. On our recent visit our group had four different entrees and all were excellent. It is a funky but pleasant atmosphere. Due to the small size it is normally very peaceful. A great place to...More

Beautiful room....owner does the heavy lifting....chef is very strong with special attention to presentation. Menu limited.....each dish special. A Taos treasure. Don't miss this one.

Went to this restaurant on a Saturday evening and was disappointed. Ordered a Thai curry-based, shrimp dish which was too hot (not advertised as being hot), and very small, low-grade shrimp. My boyfriend had a pork tenderloin dish which was much better in quality and...More

This place is the best kept secret in Taos. When you go, take your time and savor every bite, every moment. Order dessert. Talk to the staff. Indulge in the chocolate. Restaurants like this let us live our lives to the fullest!

As recommended by the guide sources, I made a reservation, but it really was not necessary. The host was very friendly and efficient, but the house salad was half filled with spoiled lettuces. The curry shrimp was tasty, but the ingredients were mushy and overcooked.

1st I would say you MOST LIKELY do not need a reservation because this place is a DUD. Very pricey we had 3 glasses of wine and 2 appetizers (we had asparagus soup and some type of kabob ) and it cost over 80.00. Nothing...More

So looking at the reviews we had mixed feelings about it but tried it anyways. We are glad we did. It is a tiny place and very cozy. It does have a Beatnik atmosphere with smooth Jazz playing and the owner playing the role of...More
