I was expecting great from the other reviews. It was fair but certainly not great. My "hot" dish wasn't hot at all and my wife's dish was also fairly plain. 13 dollar drinks...cmon. it deserves to be middle of the pack in ratings. Nothing was bad but not the great meal I was expecting or hoping for.

We sat outdoors and enjoyed the music of a talented combo. The music was loud enough for all to enjoy, but did not interfere with the ability to have a conversation. Our server was helpful in explaining the menu offerings. The coconut shrimp appetizer was a wonderful blend of sweet and spicy. The Pad Thai chicken entree was light and... More

We really enjoyed our lunch, which was more of a "linner" because it was a lunch/dinner for us. The décor is beautiful. The service was professional. The menu offered a lot of good choices. We ordered two of the three rolls they offered. One was a crepe with jumbo lump crab, beautifully presented. The other was a spicy tuna tartare.... More

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
