nondescript relatively large thai restaurant, pleasant service, large portions, but based on two visits, the food just isn't prepared well. Chicken not tender, little eggplant in an eggplant plate, and not much taste, and a high price for what you get.

Can't be certain but doing an online search for the menu may help. Menu items often have a description.
