First off, the food. It's just plain perfect. It's tasty, spicy (with accent on balance and complexity, not on making it "hot"), great presentation, fresh, clean - absolutely delicious! The prices are very reasonable too.
Second, the staff. Again, never had a better experience in any thai place. The service was great.
Finally the place. There are some thai touches but it's mostly modern western sleek clean design. Just think about modern cafe, not an "expensive", "traditional", or "ethnic" restaurant.
Bottom line is, this is a perfect lunch place. Speaking about dinners, it depends if you're looking for food or service (which both are absolutely great), or for a theme (arguably this is not the most romantic or "expensive" looking place) - then it depends on your expectations.
Overall, highly, highly recommended!
