I've been here several times over the past few years and have always had a good experience, both with the food and with the staff. The tofu cream cheese rolls are amazing, being a good balance of crispy and tender, and both their pad thai and their veggie soup are sublime. Their black sticky rice is super good, too. It's not the fanciest restaurant, but sometimes the best food is in the most unassuming of places.

I've been here twice. I won't come back again. This restaurant is a HEALTH HAZARD to the general public. One of the employees came over and started taking to me in my face, five inches away from my face. I could smell his breath, he was that close. None of the hostesses talk to you, or even look at you. They didn't reply to my "hello" and "thank you" and "good bye" either time. They don't treat you like a human being here.

I've been coming to this location and the restaurant's others on and off for years and have always had great experiences until my most recent visit. I got my favorite dish on their menu--Drunken Mushrooms--and most mushrooms were noticeably chewy. However, the wide noodles and spices were impeccable.

The owners and servers were really rude to us. We’ve been there 3 times and always found they failed to explain dishes properly, had no flexibility, and were not understanding. The food, nonetheless, has been amazing every time. 0 stars for the owners and workers, 4.5 for the food.
