My wife and I wandered in here before heading to the Rafael theatre. Not knowing what to expect, we were pleasantly surprised to be served an excellent Thai meal. We started with a spicy and sour prawn soup with mushrooms and tomatoes in a light broth flavored with lemmon grass. Then I had a very nicely-prepared alaskan cod sauteed in a chilies/garlic/plum sauce and served with simple steamed vegetables on the side. My wife had the chicken daily special prepared with snow peas and asparagus. Everything was perfectly spiced with light, appealing sauces. We'll come back here again (for the food, not necessarily the atmosphere).

Food and service is consistently good. This place is a little off to the side on a side street so it doesn't seem to get very busy.

Their corn fritters (which are only at dinner) are amazing!

For lunch they have a special "lunch club" menu where you assemble your meal as you like from a series or courses.
