This delightful restaurant and it's wonderful owner are always my first stop when I hit town. She knows my preferred wine and dinner preferences. The curries and Tom Yum soup are my favorites. Highly recommend!

Found this version of Thai food very bland without flavors. The building obviously has suffered from roof issues as evidenced by water damage and mold. Smell of bug spray very evident. Not worthy of return visit
