This restaurant is closed. It is now Marilu's Gastropub. For Asian food, you can go to Passion of the Desert, or Thai Cafe, or several other restaurants in the area.

The restaurant itself is spacious and relaxing, nicely decorated. The waitress I encountered was very friendly and helpful. The food was the only disappointment--I felt like the sauces in our meals were on the watery side and the food was definitely more greasy than your average Thai food.

Joe came personally to our table when we explained to the waitress our special dietary needs. Together we came up with a delicious curry chicken in a coconut crime base. The salad wraps even trump my other favorite Thai place. They hand rolled and packed. He also serves his native Vietnamese food which I will try next. I found him... More
