Our waiter was outstanding - very polite, friendly and efficient. The food was also very good and we both really enjoyed our meals. There were good vegetarian choices. I would have liked more seafood choices at lunch. Very well priced.

Food was lovely and the staff really friendly and helpful. Was nice and quiet and was nice to be able to sit and talk about our day. A little more expensive than other Thai food places I have been too, but I enjoyed the food.
