I had the special, Eggplant and Scallop combination while my wife had the combination plate appetizer which were delicious. The sauce in the Special was outstanding. The service was excellent and extremely attentive. The cost is a bit pricey but worth it.

Had a very bad experience. Waitress was rude and unprofessional. Waited for more than 90 minutes for food The lady was unapologetic and did not seem to care we had a couple of hungry kids. Ended up canceling our order and walking out.

We visited last week and there was a children's menu printed on the regular menu. My 8-year old ordered chicken nuggets and fries from it. There were also some Thai dishes on the children's menu.
