The thai dishes we had tasted only so so ... and the atmosphere didn't feel cozy or relaxed.

The food is good here, but the service is way too all over the place. And on top of it, they only take cash or Amex...

Great atmosphere for a date. Food spectacular if you dont mind shelling out $40-50 a meal. Best dish in the house: Sea Bass with grilled eggplant and minced tomatoes and spinash to garnish. The Sea Bass literally MELTS in your mouth as you take the first bite.

Tight and crowded. Trendy. Excellent food! Not a whole lot for vegetarians -- but what is there, tastes divine.
