Once again I can vouch for a very tasty , reasonably priced meal at this little restaurant so many people speak highly of. The Thai food comes in various degrees of spiciness, is always freshly cooked, and served by very friendly staff.

This cozy unpretentious little place provides excellent quality for a reasonable price. The food was very tasty, prepared quickly and we found the level of spiciness was well described. Not a place for a four hour dining experience, but wonderful for a quick meal.

Very good for run of the mill Thai. Be forewarned that medium hot means blisters on your tongue. Delicious and deadly at medium plus which I so carelessly ordered.
