Had a business lunch here back in April, very crowded an cramped seating, seemed rushed, had a decent lunch but not an overall enjoyable experience, maybe dinner w/reservations is a bit better?

Last time I had the Thai red curry and a Pad Thai....and they were both splendid. This time,,,,,I couldn't resist the red curry again, and also had their Thai eggplant. The red curry was as great as I remembered it. So was (served as part of their lunch special) the Lemongrass soup. The eggplant........another exciting surprise. It was wonderful! Sweet.....a...

First visit to this restaurant after hearing about it for several years. Small and intimate (but there's at least as much space upstairs as well!) and friendly, the decor transports the patron to another world!

One doesn't need to be so overt with visually slapping people with what the intention of the restaurant actually is. That said, other than the "North Americanization" of the palette, the food did have a Thai slant. I could use more... More

Sunday evening dinner for 3, we didn't need a reservation. The food was full of flavour and very fresh. I recommend the coconut soup and red thai curry- excellent. Service was friendly.
