The Tea Leaf Salad is worth the hype. It was excellent and worth every penny of the $14 price tag. The Lemon Grass Chicken was mediocre.. not flavorful enough and a bit too saucy. The coconut rice was amazing. The restaurant is loud, always crowded, and definitely a scene. It's so loud inside it's hard to have a conversation. If possible, I recommend sitting in the few outside tables. I would definitely recommend a reservation, unless you get there really early or very late. They won't guarantee specific tables, but you can put in a request.
