A great, reasonably-priced, friendly place to eat. My husband and I ate lunch there for my birthday - the portions were perfectly-sized, the salad with warm peanut dressing (which comes with all lunch entrees) was delicious, and the dishes were spicy without being overwhelming. Highly...More

After visiting quite a few times we have settled on the duck preparation as one of the "always" selections in the assortment we tend to share. The wine list is perfectly suited to their menu, (we usually order Wiemer's Riesling).

Of the several Thai places in town, this is one of maybe two that has a more authentic taste. Fresh spices. Great ambiance. The place always looks like it's closed or out of business, but I've had consistently good meals there.

Just stopped in for lunch based on all the positive reviews. And...it was edible, but unimpressive. The tom kha soup was good, but I had to pick inedible pieces of lemongrass from my mouth. The orange chicken (my daughter's choice) was dry, but the flavor...More
