Wonderful house, converted into Thai Restaurant. Specializing in Pad Thai, it did not disappoint. Great soups too. Small restaurant with no more than 20 seats, but perfect! Great service, and small bar. This has got to be the best choice for Thai in the area.

Small, yet cozy place with a great menu. Portions very generous and the Lamb Biriyani was outstanding. Perfect amount of heat without being over spicy.

This place is small and reservations are absolutely required. Dinner for 4 - family style. We ordered 4 appetizers and 3 entrees and shared. All quite tasty.
