A few of my co-workers raved how good this place is and how busy it gets so it must be good. We came here for lunch on a weekday. Parking is horrible, very small lot, but we found parking on the street nearby. We were...More

I ordered Pad Thai last night. There were literally 3 small pieces of chicken-abut thumb size- in the entire order. Had the leftovers for lunch and zero meat. Just a pile of noodles, really. I've eaten here many times and usually food is good and...More
