A small spot that serves amazing Thai food. Very clean. The staff was very attentive. The chef was clad in gloves an d hair net. The food was exceptional. Good portions. Food was made to order allowing the diner to determine the level of heat.

We are staying at a hotel nearby and the staff recommended this place for lunch. We are so glad they did. We had Iced Thai Tea, fresh seafood with lemongrass and the best crispy duck I've ever had. Go!
