I was not disappointed by this midtown Thai spot. Excellent food and flavors. Very interesting decor, but it is a little dark inside. Definitely check it out - it’s a spot better for a date than a large group.

Excellent food at an affordable lunch-box price 12-2 weekdays. You can order from the menu as well, but you will find all your favorites here.

I used to come here years ago and happened to walk by. It is as good as I remembered. My favorite dish is the chicken pineapple rice.

Not like any other Thai restaurant we've eaten in before - they don't have so many options for Gluten-free. Staff wasn't so nice and the food was OK, not more. Disappointed.

Absolutely delicious Food, with beautiful presentation. My husband and I were so impressed! I got the duck sriracha noodles and my husband got duck stir fry (We love duck). The duck was so crispy and the noodles were obviously fresh and handmade. Perfect portion sizes....More

We felt like Thai and ended up here. This is not very family friendly, and groups out for a drink will probably enjoy this place more. The food was good, but not outstanding at all, and it's quite annoying to get the entrees before we...More
