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!

From a cursory eat-in, this restaurant tries to be quite authentic, but fails with the stereotypes of decoration inside.

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.

Food is amazing and satisfying!!! Meat and vegetables were cooked just perfect! Servers worked hard and kitchen did an amazing job!!! Authentic food and it's a hidden (or not as hidden that I thought) germ!

We had lunch here yesterday and it was just the best thai I think I have ever had. Our server Cass was attentive and knew the menu well. She was the only server for lunch but handled all of the tables well. The lunch menu is a lemongrass soup with thin noodles and a beautiful spring roll. My husband had... More
