Consistently good for lunch

I've been going to this restaurant on and off for almost 15 years as I've worked nearby at various times. Having gone again just yesterday I thought I would finally put my thoughts in a review.

Every time I've been there, with friends, or for work lunches, the food has consistently been wonderful!! We've even ordered take-out and it's been equally great. Nice atmosphere, and waiters who give you space... they have been a pleasure to deal with.

We went here for dinner just before Christmas. The restaurant is fairly small, bu the ambiance is very good. The food was fantastic. Full of flavour, with just enough spice. The wait staff (only one person actually), was very friendly and attentive. I would definitely go back again, but would look for a table a little farther from the door,... More

$1 charge for doggy bag?! This was very surprising. It's not like I ordered too much. This should be indicated in the menu.

The food and the quality of ingredients are very good. The service is really good. Some of the <helper> do not speak well French as they may seems not very friendly. Do not have a bad impression for that. People who take the order are fluent bilingual.

second time going there. the server was a man about 30 years old or so. first he was abrupt and impatient but I'm not one to confront about that. I hate getting into an altercations. Then my girlfriend asked to get a doggy bag because she only ate half of her meal and the guy refused saying that they didn't... More

I have been to this restaurant twice. The first time was much better than the second...the big difference being the service..good the first, bad the second. The food is authentic and flavourful. The decor is worn and faded but this is nice place to take some time to enjoy the flavours and the company you hold.

The last time we went the servers were abrupt and impatient. We didn't feel very welcome. The decor is also tired and needs updating. As for the food, it was good, but didn't blow me away. With a few changes, this place could have more appeal. Would I go back - maybe - but it wouldn't be my first choice.

When I first went there last year, I thoroughly enjoyed the authentic Thai food and great service. Based on those memories, we went back and ended up walking out. We were seated for awhile before the wait staff came. And when they handed us the menu, we were taken aback. It was total sticker shock. The price was upped considerably... More

The food is good. The decoration is a bit old fashioned though. I would go back but it would not be my first choice.
