ordered green curry,Thai tea, asparagus,shrimp and scallops. Very good. Server was attentive and pleasant. Dogs are allowed in the patio. I love dogs but when dogs are allowed with the owner at least feed the dog by giving him the food and not putting it on the concrete floor.

The food here is so good. And watching the sunset is priceless. I love the way they serve the rice and a beautiful terrine. Their soup is always delicious and a hot and not oversalted. They have many choices from their extensive menu and this is one place where I always order something different because I know it's going to... More

Very delicious food with an amazing view of the ocean. Definitely ask for patio seating! Great lunch time specials that are reasonably priced--a great value if you add in the view!
