This was once my favorite Thai place. In terms of taste, it still is, but the prices have climbed up over the years and their portions have shrunk. Basil Fried rice with beef, Tom Yum Noodle Soup spicy, Basil Chicken (ask for ground chicken), and Pad Kee Mao are still one of the best I've had in the whole world. (but I've never been to Thailand) :)

It's not fancy, but it's good and it's fast. My first (not counting the awful Big Bowl) and maybe best Thai experience to date.
