Everything was excellent including the service! The pad thai was excellent. The price is also very reasonable (especially when considering the location)!

Our hotel suggested this restaurant and we enjoyed the sushi and sashimi. The wait staff was very attentive and it was conveniently located for the first night we arrived in the city.

So when we come to the city, we like to eat ethnic food the entire time. Sometimes it's a hit, sometimes it's a miss...and oftentimes, it's very expensive. Not so with this little gem! We went to a Saturday matinee at the Oriental Theatre and we were looking for an early dinner place that wasn't fast food but didn't cost... More

What a find.....within walking distance of the Auditorium Theater! A small, sleek and clean, no nonsense ambience with fast and efficient service. The menu offers a great variety of dishes, many usual offerings with some surprises. The kung pao chicken, crab rangoon and grilled chicken satay were tasty, but the big winner of our evening was the ped yamg, or... More

After getting shut out of several of the more popular iconic pizza joints on Friday night, we stopped in to Amarit's...and we were not disappointed. Some of the best Thai I have had. Pad Ped in particular.

Hubs and I had been out walking all day. We were headed back to the "L" when we saw this restaurant, in the shadows. We figured it would be nice to try something "off the beaten path". We arrived around 7pm on a Saturday. So it wasn't super busy. Staff was very friendly. We ordered several different sushis and soup/salad.... More

Close to our hotel and recommended by the concierge. Not too pricey. Food on the bland side. Used the hot chili paste a lot. Nice ambience and decent service.

The pineapple fried rice with shrimp and chicken not only tasted good, but the presentation was beautiful. Using the pieapple rind as a bowl looked pretty and made use of a throw away item. I would order this again.
