I can see why some people say this is their fave restaurant and others aren't impressed by it. There are some dishes I've had here that were so bland, I'm glad it wasn't my first experience at Hot Shots or I'd never have gone back. I really wasn't fond of their satays or the pad thai at all. But...their wraps... More

"They just slid down, no chewing required" Much to my surprise, they forgot the chicken and I could count the number of vegetable pieces on the fingers of one hand. (The menu states the... More

Not sure if we will go a fourth time, not because anything was "bad", just that it is nothing special either. Food is ok as is the variety on the menu. A bit pricy. Service is good. The building itself has nothing to deaden the sound, so it can be quite noisy, especially at lunch time. The outdoor patio is... More

Had lunch there last week. Had the Pho. Everything was fresh but no taste whatsoever. My company had the shrimp wrap and said it was great. Will try a curry bowl b4 I rule them out for good. Ambience is great and very freindlt and attentive staff.

Staff is attentive and have demeanor they are having a good time working at this venue. For dinner I had a yellow curray/rice bolw. Very tasty and... More

This is my second visit to this restaurant. I had the Green curry bowl and it was delicious. The informal nature of the restaurant and the comfy chairs are a plus. Prices are reasonable. Wish I could have tried the coffee, but was trying to avoid caffeine.

Great place for a taste of Thai. One of the few places I order mine with tofu. Casual atmosphere with great service. They had an excellent special menu for Valentines Day that was over the top.
