Delicious soup, fresh ingredients and the best Thai iced tea. I love Thai iced tea, and they had one of the best I've ever tasted. Small, cozy restaurant, with good service and good food.

Very pleased with our meal - we are veteran Thai fans and appreciated the high quality. Nice ambiance, but they do have high take-out traffic so choose a table away from the center of the restaurant.
