My 10 year old son and I ate there, The place is darkl and uninviting although it is decorated in Thai. The food was expensive for our area and not very flavorful. Probably the expense would keep us from going back, The service was medium.

I''m not fond of any menu that has seafood flavored items. I'd rather pay more for real seafood then get a big hunk of something that artificially made out of everything but seafood.

Wow! All of the ingredients were high-quality and fresh. The plating was gourmet level--just the right amount of garnish to impress. We tried both lunch and dinner on two separate days. Lunch portions are just as generous as dinner, but slightly less expensive (good value...More
