Love eating here especially when I am craving thai and want to eat outside. Have eaten here a few times and has never disappointed me. My daughter just came back from Thailand and she loved it here too. The curry masaman is great.

My wife and I split one meal (seaweed salad, tamarind duck, and dessert). All were well prepared and service was excellent on a busy Saturday evening. No charge for splitting meal. Staff was particularly patient with two tired travelers who were having trouble making decisions.
