Transported upon entry, this cozy dining room with a wine bar suggests a more European feel than a Thai restaurant. Two menus are presented - one a conventional Thai listing with adapted names for American tastes, like "Pad Z-U". The other is a tapas menu with an Asian bend. The papaya salad with prawns tasted authentic but a touch spicy for my dining partner. We were not offered the '1 to 5' spicy range, but notice the reviews include such a choice. Nonetheless, I enjoyed the salad 'kick' without complaint. The catfish was presented with a tasty curry-like sauce that worked very well. We considered tapas, but our two dishes satisfied.
The wine list demonstrates a competent selection with an adequate variety by the glass. However, our Pinot Noir must have sat in the bottle at least overnight and lacked character. It's truly awkward to send back glasses of wine during a first visit as these glasses were "borderline" in my opinion, so we shifted gears for 2nd glasses and commented politely to the waiter about the 1st. I suggest tasting before committing until they cycle their by-the-glass bottles properly.
Service was capable and polite. Reservations are recommended as the size of the dining room is limited for your pleasure and comfort. I'll be back.
