The food is remarkable. Very good. The place is though very small so it can be very difficult to get a table. And tables are very close to each other. Some noise. I went solo and got a place at the countertop without reservation on...More

Food was great and staff very attentive, always with a smile, very professional. It’s a tinny place with quick turns. I love the fact that they play Thai music, it adds to already very nice atmosphere. Loved the wooden based decor.

What a tiny little hole in the wall. The service was excellent in every way and the food was beyond our expectations. Small tables and chairs, busy, busy, busy...fresh hot food that was creative and yummy. Be sure to try the Green Papaya Salad.

The food was good and the atmosphere fun. It is a really small restaurant with a long wait, but really worth it. A lot of locals with takeout, so you know it's a steady place.
