I would rate this venue as one of the better Thai style restaurants in SJ. Their food is consistently good and the service is good as well, at least during our business meetings. Will happily go back.

Best Thai in Saint. An experience not to be missed. Great service and food to die for. Make a reservation as it is a small venue
