Visited with family. A bit too much on the menu. Thai, Asian, steaks. Would be great if they narrowed it down. Some items were great, others were average. Pricey for type of food. Trying to be too many things. Plus, 6 specials? Wait staff nice, but almost too friendly. Kept asking us if items we ordered should stay on menu.... More

I was think it was a high end Thai restaurant before I go. It turned out it is more like European Fine Dining than Thai even though the few Thai dishes available are still very good. This is a fine dinning restaurant with good service and fine food. I was a little skeptic when I saw some review that this... More

Lunch included 3 of our favorite dishes: Coco Shrimp, overcooked shrimp, good chili tamarind sauce; Prig Pow, sauce too undercooked to meld flavors of spices and peppers, again, overcooked shrimp; and Chicken in Red Curry, chicken was overcooked and sliced in irregular shapes and thicknesses resulting in sloppy looking presentation. Skipped dessert because Mama's Cardamom Custard was not on the... More

We ate here with colleagues on a Sunday evening. The Thai Pot (25-35$ depending on your choice of protein) was very good. The duck with veggies is excellent, and the caramel fig, shrimp, and goat cheese salad was angelic. One glass of wine costs from 9-12$, and bottles average 40$. We paid 130$ for three persons but took home food... More

The food and service here are excellent. All the dishes we had were really tasty, not too hot and we ate the lot. The only criticism is that there should be more vegetable only dishes.

Looked for a last minute dinner choice and found this Gem of a restaurant in downtown Syracuse. We were seated very quickly and the waiter, the manager and the hostess were very pleasant to deal with. We were in a bit of a rush and the appetizers drinks and dinner came out with perfect timing and the food was fantastic.... More

Stopped here in need of a good drink, a good meal, and some quiet time. Lemongrass fit the bill. The cowboy steak and the filet dinner were both outstanding. The Pad Thai was different and not my favorite but it was ok. The space was lovely in Armory Square and the service was prompt. Not an inexpensive meal for 3... More

Dinner was excellent; both of us enjoyed a special entree: chicken, scallop, and choice of either soft shell crab or lobster. Delicious!
