The food is excellent and very well presented. Our only recommendation is to book a table as you generally cannot walk in and be seated. The outside area during summer is a wonderful place to enjoy your meal.

It's a bit sad to see Crested Butte being hit by the Development stick, as they say. But there's still a lot of unique, colorful character to the old town. This is one of those places to get a taste of it, and have a...More

Quite an interesting menu of drinks and Thai/Indian style foods. I had the delicious White Ginger Cocktail made with ginger infused vodka, Bailey's, coconut milk and sprinkled with nutmeg. I ordered the spring rolls and they came so stuffed with shrimp & fresh veggies in...More

I imagine they are listed on-line with a phone number. I just walked in and sat at the bar. It seemed to be a very popular spot though.
