Anniversary Dinner

Enjoyed our anniversary dinner. Excellent selection and very tasty. Server was very helpful, offered a very good wine to enjoy with our dinner. We felt very comfortable here. Plan to add this to our dining out list.

Very Tasty food. Please keep Kaho Soi on the lunch menu too. That dish is wonderful! I will travel from Omaha just to get that dish!

Good atmosphere for a date or as a group. Excellent Thai food that you can ask to be as spicy (or not as spicy) as you want. Excellent selection of appetizers,drinks, and desserts also. Awkward entrance but worth the effort to find.

The place was packed the night we were there last weekend. We had to wait about 30 minutes to get a table. Once seated our drinks arrived quickly and our appetizers soon after that. The entrees came out together and we all ate simultaneously. Our waiter was friendly, but not super attentive, but in his defense the place was packed... More

We have just finished drinks and dinner . The host acted like he was overwhelmed in finding us a table in what appeared to be a slow Monday night. I liked my pineapple basil cocktail but the Pad Thai was bland- have had much, much better! My husband had part of mine and agreed. He, on the other hand ,... More

Very upscale, a great date night place. Very good drink selection. Trendy but not fru-fru. Be careful on the selection of HOT and Spicy, it is exactly that! But very well made dishes and presentation of food is great.

We had a delivery. It was very bad! We ordered for 4 people and none of us liked it. Tom yam or tom kha if you ever tried them were nothing like they should be. Extra shrimps for $2 were literally 2 pcs. Will never go there again.

I stopped in here (close to the Embassy Suites Hotel) for a quick dinner - Chicken Satay and Spring Rolls. Both were excellent. The chicken satay had 5 sticks with good quality chicken and the Thai Rolls were "miniature" in comparison to traditional (California) Thai Rolls but plentiful for an appetizer and excellent - they come in veggie, or chicken....

I came here with my sister on a Saturday for lunch. The place was empty except for one other table. The food was amazing though! Great dessert selection also. Kind of hard to find, but worth it!
