We have been here twice and had a great experience each time. Great food and delicious drinks. Usualy by the end of the evening, the owner's mother "mama" was out on the patio with her arm around many of the guests. We were just in newport and went back to have a meal at this yummy place and we couldnt' find it. After walking up and down the street a couple times we asked this couple siting on their front porch where our favorite restuarant was. They said sadly they abrutly closed their doors one day. Much sadness. There is now a generic looking thai restaurant in its place.
