If the weather is warm, wear short sleeves, as it gets warm inside. But, it's worth it. The food is great. You might need to ask for some spice, tho. We had a few appies and some rice.

This small Thai Restaurant offers good quality food cooked in Thai style. The waitresses are friendly. Their popular dish on my suggestion is Pineapple Fried Rice. Good value, good taste.

We arrive 30 minutes before closing time and were told we couldn't sit and could only take out, which was fine with us. We ordered pad thai and it was very good. There was a lot of vegetables and the wait was about 10 minutes.
