I found this gem of a restaurant. The ambience is wonderful and the food is incredible. The service was also great. Loved the Larb Gai for appetizers and the Drunken Noodles. Great Thai Iced Coffee. Very reasonably priced.

We ordered red curry with shrimp, pan (which means stir fry) eggplant and scallop, and 2 cocktails (lemon drop and Germaine specialty drink). Everything was very tasty and we agreed we would go back. I found the venue a little cramped and noisy though. Tables...More

Thai food is a real treat. This did not satisfy my Thai hopes. Some may say that ordering Pad Thai is trite but I love the dish. It was just okay here and where do you go from there? You have to hit basic out...More
