We like this restaurant, but since it is in the Gaslamp District, we hate the parking so we don't go as often as we might. The sign outside isn't spectacular and I have always thought that a better sign would attract more patrons. Last night we finally went after we had heard that the menu had changed. Sad to see the satays didn't make the cut because they were delicious. The calamari is still there, but it wasn't cooked quite right...a little on the undercooked side and the sauce was watery. The Pad Thai was cooked correctly, but once again was watery. The shrimp fried rice didn't have as much taste as it used to and we kept looking for salt or soy sauce, none of which was availalble and we didn't feel like asking the waitress. Tried their specialty cocktail of blueberries and blueberry vodka. YUCK! We will go again because of previous experiences and hopefully it will turn out better.
Also when we called for reservations, the answering machine turned off before we could finish our request. We had to book through Open Table.
