When this restaurant first opened in the University area we were one of the first customers...it was fantastic. We returned several times. Then came the big move to downtown. On our first visit the wait was very long, but we did not mind as there is a nice outside patio. The food at that visit was just o.k, nothing special and not as good as it had been at their original location.....and VERY pricy. We returned 2 weeks ago to give it another try. There was only one other group in the place on a Friday night at 7:00 so we thought our food would be freshly prepared and hot. We got the drink "specials" that were 9 bucks each and they were just so-so, (looking for the booze in the drink, but found very little.) I ordered off of the new menu and got the portabello special. I was interested in seeing how they could put a Thai twist on it. They did not. My meal was plain, unspiced, and something that I could have made at home without even trying. a grilled muchroom, plain white rice and a few beggies. Very disapointing. My partner ordered a Thai noodle dish with shrimp. There was no sauce as it appeared to have all dried out and the noodles were so overcooked that they stuck to his fork in one big blob. We both thought the shrimp that was added did taste good. We are so sad that 2 trips produced 4 poor meals. We don't know what happened when they moved downtown, but it was not a change for the good. It is really too bad.
