We ordered Massaman Curry, shrimp Pad-Thai noddles and couple Thai ice teas. I thought it was okay. My husband thought the pad-that was excellent. We did not care much for the curry. Service was good. Prices was moderate for the area. My rating: 3.5

We had two dishes: Ono with Panang Curry with veggies and Red curry with Ono. These dishes were paired with a Matua Sauvignon Blanc -2016 which paired well (BYOB) Both dishes were awesome. Great service with Ashely as our server.
