“Amazing Thai”
Reviewed January 21, 2013

I have been going here for 5 years on a regular basis. I love it for the following reasons:
- BYOB
- Gorgeous interior from the exposed brick to the copper ceiling (there are two dining rooms)
- Very friendly and attentive staff
- Delicious food
- Beautiful presentation; even the soup bowl looks like a work of art
- Fun with a group, romantic if a couple
- Great value

Make reservations on Friday and Saturday nights as it gets packed. They do not take lunch reservations. They offer outside seating in good weather now too !

Excellent and different take on Oriental cuisine. Service acceptable.A little overpriced but worth it for the variety of the menu.Weekend reservations a must.

“One of the nicest restaurants in Somerville, NJ.”
Reviewed October 12, 2012 via mobile

Came for lunch - Great ambiance, cool decor, and super fast service. Elegantly prepared meals, you feel you're at a very upscale establishment even though lunch prices are great! The dishes never fail to please, always tasty, though not very spicy (I guess that's the fusion element) though most lunch dishes are mainly Thai.
