We popped in here for a bite to eat after a long week. The menu had all the usual Thai options and everything was tasty and authentic.

found a piece of metal/steelo/pot brush whatever you call it in the Pad Thai. Only offered a 10% discount on the food bill ($4.50)... food was ok, medium spicy curry has no spiciness at all. $24 and $2 for a rice... not worth it.

I use this restaurant to go too and to get takeaways. They have wonderful green curries and a comprehensive menu for vegetarian food that is healthy and delicious. I recommend if you like Thai food.
