overall passing grade, however food was not served hot, smelled good, but chicken used in that pad thai was not fresh....also thought they may had substituted some tofu for chicken in my plate, which makes it off for a apprenti chef that I am we had to asked for green tea twice before getting a refill - 4 people in...

very nice service, accommodating, great ambiance. I find they rely a little too much on the onion and green peppers as a go to vegetable, but at least everything smells and tastes flavorful and fresh.

Tried to make a reservation....their voicemail box was full and once I got there they informed me that they couldn't remember the password so... More

The server yelled at the elder couples sitting on the table next to us, when they ordered rice instead of noodles. The waiter refused to make any changes. They also gave attitude when we... More

I ordered their vegetarian green curry and it arrived without rice! What kind of Thai place charges $15.25 plus $1.98 tax plus $2 tip plus $4 delivery fee for a vegetarian curry that doesn't include any rice? It wasn't even good! Colossal disappointment. My phone call to complain got nothing but indignation. Don't come here. Don't order delivery.

We ordered several main dishes nonveg/veg and all were delicious. The place was very busy for lunch but service was fast and friendly. If in... More

The four of us enjoyed every plate we shared. The species and sauces were very good. They prepared dishes glutton free as requested.
