It took us 20 minutes to have a seat. Only two servers working in a large saloon and they could care less about the people waiting in line. The coconut shrimp was very good, but everything else was mediocre

The food was very good.... authentic, tasty and decent portions. The service was great... very friendly and attentive. The vegan options were numerous, which was great... they would accommodate with meatless options.

Bland flavourless dishes (difficult to achieve with Thai food) didn't taste particularly fresh and lazy service. I get the impression that because of the location and the guarantee of a steady flow of customers they couldn't care less about your individual experience.

Very nice interior. Very clean. Reviews on this restaurant are mixed, at best. Most folks loved or hated it. I was in the middle, but closer to the 'love' side than 'hate'. My wife and I had lunch here. Soup was delicious. Salad that comes...More

Pad Thai was bland...almost as bland as the pineapple rice. Wasn't the cleanest place I've ever been either. Only positive was the service. Wouldn't go back.
