Great curries. Friendly staff. Only one beer selection, but its an asian import. Have not ever seen it overly crowded. Seems like many of the customers are asian.

Order any of the seafood. It is great. Also, be sure not to ask for tool much spice as their food is quite hot

The food was great but, their service sucked!!!! Their menu also needs to be updared. So, many selections they offer yet they were not lisred on the menu. I had green papaya salad with steamed shrimp added and it was not on the menu. If they updare their menu and speed up the service I don't see why this place... More

We started off with very good basil and fresh veggies rolled in rice crepes. It was accompanied by a good plum and peanut dipping sauce. I had a veggie and tofu dish in a mild garlic sauce. My wife had a spicy but sweet veggie and tofu dish in a brown sauce. Service was very good.

I had the chicken and crab fried nuggets. I thought they were sub par. My friends has spring rolls and chicken curry soup. They liked it. Go early before 12 pm or it will get packed. Friendly and prompt service.

Tried it after reading other reviews. The pad chicken was good, but the two other dishes tried noodles in green curry and another plate of noodles were below average.

We stopped here for lunch--so glad we did! Varied menu with lots of options. We had fresh basil rolls and chicken sate for appetizers. The basil rolls were AWESOME and super refreshing. The chicken sates were kinda small and a bit skimpy, but very flavorful. Both of our entrees were excellent! Happy we visited and will return for future meals... More

This place was a major letdown to me. They're clean and neat, and bland, hence the comparison to hospital food. Nothing wrong with the quality, but the taste is missing. I visited them on two separate occasions and it's the same. That's good news if you like the food here, as you know it will never change.
