Food was great here! I order the Pad See Ew with chicken and it was delicious. The menu had a lot of variety of food and great options if you are vegetarian/vegan. There is also a nice selection of drinks, I recommend the Mango Martini!

The food did not taste authentic. The potstickers were served with chicken, not pork and they weren't crispy. Plus, they were in a sweet chili sauce which is very unusual. The main entrees we had were okay and sizable. It was pretty expensive, too.
