I enjoyed their happy hour appetizers at $5 along with drinks. The corn cakes with cucumber relish were delicious.

We usually get Tom-Yum soup and standard pad thai dish. Their dishes with eggplant are great as well. I would recommend avoiding deep fried calamari appetizer.

This restaurant was recommended by our daughter and we've had lunch here three times. Love the food, good selection with reasaonable prices. Lunch service is fast, not overly friendly, but the food makes up for it. Only wished we lived closer so we could visit more often.
