This is our second time visiting this restaurant, and I'm not sure why we came back for a second round. On a positive note, the service was okay, and just okay. But food wise, this is not worth the money. First, we ordered a glass of chardonnay wine, and were informed they were out of chardonnay.....this is wine country, isn't it. And then the food.....totally blah! I had the Chicken Satay which tasted like old shoe leather, and my husband's was a little more tasty. He had one of the curry dishes. The hot and sour soup was like dish water with a veggie or two, and the salad was sad. Will not return.

I am a big fan of red curry so I thought I'd try this place for lunch. Lunch entrees come with coconut soup and a little salad. The soup was not hot enough; other than that the taste was good. The little salad was hmmm, not good. Really pale and bland iceberg lettuce with a few shredded carrots and this goopy unappetizing looking dressing on top. The red curry was also very bland for my taste although the vegetables in it were fresh. The service was super friendly though.

We had boba tea, yellow curry and pad thai shrimp , chicken and tofu. The flavor for the curry was delish but there was ABSOLUTELY NOTHING much in it. There were carrot slices, 4 shrimp and a lot of curry sauce. I felt cheated. The pad thai tasted well as well but had the same issues. They need to do better.

The jasmine rice was tasty as well.

We ate here early one evening and would return again. Food is freshly cooked and good value. Service is fast and friendly. Vegetarian options are good. Looks like they have a strong take-out business. The only criticism was the food wasn't "Thai hot" - the green veggie curry and green papaya salad weren't sufficiently heaty - better luck next time.
