This is a wonderful destination. I LOVE the atmosphere and food and staff--all perfect--and as a vegetarian find the options to be overwhelmingly plentiful. When I was living in the area, this was my go-to dinner destination, and I'm sorry not to be closer now....More

Fresh and healthy food with vegetarian options. We ordered snow peas, mushrooms,pineapple and tofu with brown rice, Thai green curry with noodles and fried banana with vanilla ice cream. All the items were very tasty and well presented.

We ordered Green Thai Curry and Tofu with Snow peas. It was just fantastic. A very cosy restaurant with good service. Lovely deserts as well. Not very expensive costs us USD 30 for two. You will find many students around from BU.

The chicken coconut curry was phenomenal. Big portions - easily splittable or bring the leftovers home. Highly recommend.
