Dining with Opal is quite an experience!! You can order off the menu, but you probably won't want to. He quizzes you on a list of ingredients, what kind of Thai food you like, the last time you ate Thai food, what did you have, etc. We really had no idea what to expect, for our table of 4, he brought out 2 appetizers, that were amazing, then 4 entrees, all served family style. There was something for each persons taste. The flavors were intense, we tried things that we normally wouldn't order off the menu and were pleasantly surprised. Opal runs a tight ship, and is very big on customer service. Overall this was a great dining experience. We had about a 20 minute wait and there was a line outside the whole time we were there. Very small, somewhat loud, dining area. Pick up beer or wine at the store across the parking lot, BYOB ok!!
