“Best since Bangkok”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 17, 2013

Outstanding meal of four appetizers, each one with authentic, different flavors. Best larb ever if you love cilantro. The whole rockfish at the neighboring table looked fantastic, and there was nothing left on the platter. How have we missed dining here in the six years it has been open? We'll be back soon and plan to eat in the herb garden.

“Service Was Great”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 18, 2013

Great service! the staff are VERY warm and welcoming. I am a HUGE thai food fan and feel that the food was acceptable but didn't wow me at all. I would gladly return, but i do feel that they are slightly overpriced for food that is just ok. To be fair, we only sampled two dishes so there may be some serious wow-factor yet to be discovered!

“GREAT lunch menu focus on seafood”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013

We were fortunate to visited at lunch and were treated to their opening of the outside dining area. Lovely pleasent day for a wonder selection of Catfish in red Curry sauce and shrimp and scallops. Meal came with a drink, two Thai spring rolls and lemon grass soup. The drinks were never ending as the coke, coffee and waters were refilled often. All for under 9 dollars. A great meal and my friend and I were treated like Thai royalty. Lunch menu changes ever week and focuses on what is in season. The patio area is quit unique. The grown there own special herbs that the use in the dishes and you sit along side the herb and flower garden water a peaceful fountain. In the another few weeks this places will just be gorgeous to take someone or yourself to experience excellent food in a beautiful setting. I must go back and try some of the very interesting dishes that are on the main menu.

“Not the best”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2013

There was nothing wrong with the meal, just didn't have a wow factor. We ate there on a Thursday night and the service was alright, not fast by any means. Parking was awful, but within a block. Glad it wasn't raining, just cold. I was surprised that the meal was closer to $14 and that was it. No soup, spring rolls or any extras.
