Excellent food, great service and nice surroundings. The food is excellent with a wide variety of dishes, some that are not so common on menus so this is a great place to get new and great tastes.

Went to dinner tonight as we were craving some Thai food. Had the shrimp cakes as an appetizer (6.00 for 4 large ones), Royal Pad Thai (10.99) and Pra Ram with chicken (13.99). All was good. The service was good too. Would return.
