But no more. The Fresh Spring Rolls promised shrimp, noodles, lettuce, etc., arrived with zero shrimp and no noodles (lots of shredded lettuce and carrot, though). I pointed this out and they replaced the order with another sporting exactly one (1) medium shrimp, split in half, with no noodles for an appetizer priced at $7.00. The Crying Tiger should be...

We were both happy with the food from here. We tried the Chile Basil Chicken and the Crying Tiger (Beef with a Spicy Tamarind sauce). They gave us complimentary Tom Yum Soup and our plates came with our choice of rice, a fried crispy chip, and a small fresh salad. Both meals were delicious and prepared nicely and also reasonably...

My wife and I ate lunch there. We had the scallops, tofu param, and vegetable red curry. We loved all the dishes. We would have preferred to order each dish a la carte but each dish came as lunch specials with salad, rice, and a complimentary soup. It was way more food than we could eat but we didn't mind...

We went to this restaurant based on the reviews we read and we loved it. The food was excellent and the service was good. We would definitely return if we lived in the neighborhood!

Prices were a bit high, but then again this is wine country so everything is pricey. The service was pretty decent although our main waiter wasn't they most friendly person I have ever met. The young lady waitress who checked on us was pleasant and courteous. We had the Pad Thai noodles which was very good but the Yellow Curry... More

Visiting friends at FHL and decided to give this place a chance. Very bad choice! I love Thai food but this was just adiquate. Service was good, maybe a little overbearing. The main reason I won't go back is they added the gratuity without saying anything. When picking up the bill with friends, you don't sit there and study it.... More

We went to this restaurant after reading reviews and getting a high recommendation from the hotel where we were staying. The Thai veggie rolls were overcooked, dry and taseless. The sweet/sour sauce was like a heavy syrup and overly sweet. For the main course the Wok dish was similarly dry and tasteless and the tofu was in large unappetizing chunks.... More

We had a good experience at this restaurant recently. Good downtown location around the park. The place itself is quite big and has nice interior and ample seating. It was quite busy that day during luinch and they were short staffed. It did take a while to get our order in. Our server was quite nice and she kept apologizing... More
