On a business trip we chose to come here for dinner. Many options, Thai and others. Loved the red curry with paneer, and soft shell crab appetizer. Attentive but not overbearing waiter.

Great location right next to a parking garage. Very pleasing ambiance and interesting Tai themed menu selections. This is a nice restaurant & not a place for cheap eats. it's considered by many to be one of the top restaurants in Syracuse!

First time here- I've heard so many good things about this restaurant. And I would have to agree! The appetizers were pretty good and the entrees were a good size and very flavorful.

This was a real surprise. It has an extensive creative menu across a wide variety of cuisines. The salads were particularly inventive and delicious. The portion sizes were moderate. The service was unobtrusive and swift. Noithing is cheap, but the value is there.
