Food was great, prices weren't THAT high (contrary to what other users were saying), service was commendable. We had three courses and drinks for $65. Never went there when it was basil leaf. Will def go back.

This is a really nice Thai restaurant in New Orleans. The staff were very friendly. The food was well above average and the presentation was nice as well. The prices were also very reasonable.

Delicious food, fair price. The woo sen and Thai fried rice are good. But the restaurant name is Thai mint now.

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
Carrollton stay youthful, cosmopolitan and vibrantly
fun. Two of the liveliest thoroughfares for nightlife
