The place has a great atmosphere and the food was good. I ordered a soup and eggrolls and both came out hot and relatively quickly. The server was nice and attentive. I would go back for lunch or dinner.

Had a very good meal there. I love pad thai and they did a great job. The server was very good and we had a delightful meal. Next time we are in the area we will go back.
