We orders Wontons and Dumplings for appetizer and then the panang and tofu tikka curries for entree and were not disappointed! The panang was REALLY good and the tofu tikka was alright and definitely not bad at all. Would go there again.

Friendly servers, a wide selection and fair prices are the draw here. Four of us enjoyed craft beers,wontons, dumplings, pad thai and peanut curry and ate it all.Not fancy, just good. And for Saturday lunch there was a line.

Food was delicious and ambience was also good. The location was very nice. Don't hesitate to order high level if you like spicy. We asked for Medium spicy and it was mild.
