“This is watered down Thai food”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed January 7, 2010

I love Thai food and have been to many other Thai restaurants.This place doesn't have good Thai food. It's a beautiful restaurant with a waterfall inside and a great atmosphere for a first date but it ends there. I've been here 3 times? I don't go too often because the food isn't worth the price.

My family and I went ( there were 5 of us) and we ordered 4-5 entrees. None of the dishes were to our standards of what Thai food tastes like. It tasted like the Thai flavors were not there. One dish actually tasted like a chicken fajita. It was a dish that had bell peppers,chicken, and onions. I don't know how this could have happened at a Thai restaurant. The pad Thai was also not very good. Tasted like it was made from a package.

One thing that was good was their chicken wraps. It is chicken with a mango sauce that you wrap in these flour bread wraps. That was actually an appetizer that we ate as an entree. It was about $12. That is the only thing I will ever order there if I ever have to go back. .

“Always a pleasure”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2009

I've been here three times with groups of 6-8 people and always experienced excellent service and very good food. There is competition in the thai food market, such as Wild Ginger in Seattle-which bests Indochine in every category, but by a small margin. The drinks here are great, the service quite good, the food is inspired and the ambiance is good. The prices are higher than expected for the quality of food, but your alternatives in the area really support the prices. Parking is not great, but a small walk isn't bad for you. I asked for three star heat and got food which did not at all scare my whitey palate-don't be afraid to start at the two star level.
