“Delicious!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 25, 2012

I got carry out Pad Thai and Dublin Chocolate Cake and they were both wonderful. The Pad Thai wasn't spicy, but that's how I prefer it, and had plenty of peanuts (although they ask before adding them, for those of you with allergies). Some of the best Pad Thai I've had. And the cake was awesome as well. I picked up my food at the restaurant and it looked very nice, like a good place to take a date and sit at a romantic table or to go with friends and sit at a classy, modern bar.

“Good... but....”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 5, 2012

For once, I am not writing a review of the food... it is a good place to eat. Which is why we wanted to go this past weekend, Sat. night. We show up at 8:45... doors locked.... huh?? Very confused... maybe they closed down...

Went around front.... sign on the front door, that no one uses... "we stop seating 15 minutes before 9pm." Really?? Its not that they just stop seating.. .they lock the doors! So weird... I guess it is their prerogative, but sheesh... we weren't the only ones to walk up the door and shake our head and walk away. Every other restaurant downtown serves until 10 on the weekend... and they have their doors LOCKED at 8:45...

I supposed I am glad they weren't open, because we had a lovely meal from Lucilans right next door, then.

Fine Thai food. Nothing spectacular but the flavors are there and the service is pleasant.
