We love the food and service at this small eatery in West Village. The lemon grass chicken and the jalapeno margarita are perfection. The service at the bar is better than table service, but it is at most small restaurants. We eat here quite often...More

Very quick service, and the food was great. I thought that it would be cold eating out on the patio in the middle of a cold winter day in January, but it was cozy and warm. The food was delicious, especially the lemongrass chicken.

Yes, absolutely. I have celiac and I had the papaya salad and the iron pot green curry with chicken. They were very helpful with the gluten issue. I did not get sick after dining there. Hope that is helpful!
