This is a small Thai restaurant tucked away hidden from the main street. The food and service has been consistently good. Food is delicious and better than the other Thai places in the neighborhood. Many good vegetarian options.

Going to the theatre etc.? Great place for excellent Thai food and not to fancy. Love their eggplant dishes, Their spicy dishes are delicious. 4 dishes with steam rice is more than enough. All the salads are great.
