Absolutely amazing food, service and dessert. I work downtown and often have business meetings/lunch here. Service is exceptional and never disappoints. If you are anywhere near the Armory and this is within your price range, it is a dining experience not to be missed.

A great atmosphere with great, authentic Asian and Thai food. The staff was attentive, professional and efficient. My group had a variety of choices and everyone raved about their food. The appetizers were so good that they could be a meal all by themselves. Loved...More
