We went with a large group, and also the restaurant was very busy, they were very flexible. The fish I had and the legumes were delicious - as the very quick and friendly service.

The service is wonderful---what you'd expect of a suberb restaurant; yet the sense is not that of a super-elegant place requiring fancy dress. The food----ooooooh soooooo good. melt in your mouth appetizers, tremendous soup, fascinating flavors in delicious entrees. I'd eat there at least monthly except it is a two-hour drive from home, so it is our to go place whenever we are in SF---which is amazing considering the amazing restaurants in that great city.

Came to this restaurant on the recommendation of a friend. We had pad Thai and panong beef curry. Both were delicious, but the beef curry was amazing! It was like a mix of pulled pork and curry- so tender! The staff we very welcoming and never let our water get below half a glass. We also thought it was great value as we ended up bringing home leftovers. I highly recommend this restaurant if you like Thai food.

Outstanding food, especially the beef and chicken satay. The peanut sauce was wonderful and plentiful. Our server was delightful. Highly recommended.

With all the great reviews, I was expecting wonderful things! Was not the great foodie experience I thought it would be. There were 4 of us, so I got to sample a few things besides my own dish (Pad Thai). While everything was okay, nothing was a standout or OMG. Considering the food was meh, felt it was overpriced. I will say that the food was very nicely presented and attractive.

We were there while it was still quite light outside--while interestingly decorated, with the bright light the room looked somewhat dingy--not classy like the photo on their webpage seems to indicate.
