I don't know where they get the price guidance of $$-$$$. As you can see from the attached menu entrees are 7.95 & 8.25. The food is excellent, and they will split an order. So we both eat for under $11, total. We only get here two or three times a year, so we haven't tried every thing . But tonight's dinner was Siam rice. Wonderful vegies and non-breaded chicken in a smokey sauce. Fantastic!!!
