Dined here with a local friend who wisely suggested an early arrival on a Tuesday evening. The cocktails are excellent, the range of dishes impressive, marvelous execution and very generous servings. Highly recommend!

I am recuperating from surgery so our kids went and got it carried out. We had curry sauce with brown rice, Garlic chicken, pad Thai noodles and a host of assorted appetizers. What a fabulous meal. We can't wait to go again soon

The crispy garlic chicken is out of control. Friendly servers who recommend the best dish and take care of you while you are dining.

Food is always very good. You do have to wait sometimes, but, that makes sense because they have a very dedicated group of Thai food lovers.

I am a foodie, growing up in Bangkok, I have a very high standard for authentic Thai food. Obviously, no restaurant would ever compete with your grandmother's everything-made-from-scratch kitchen, there're few places that come very close. While several places come and go, I'm delighted when...More

Mixed feeling about this place. We come here often hoping for the times that we experienced good food but not always. The wait is so long even with reservations. Not the best attitude when it comes to service. Food is good most of the time....More
