They are nice here but the Pad Thai and the Drunken Noodles are not as good as other places serve. They are set up to carry out so I still like to order there

They have a separate list of vegan items that are absolutely delicious! We love coming to this place whenever we are in the mood for Thai. It's clean, the staff is nice and the food is great!

Uptown / Carrollton
Very much their own self sufficient unit within the
greater metro area, Uptown and Carrollton tone down
the urban edge with a friendly attitude and collegiate
feel. Home to Tulane and Loyola Universities, all the
students living in the area ensure that Uptown and
