I like noodle dishes so ordered the Phad Woon Sen - glass noodles with chicken and vegetables. I also ordered the Thai dumplings as an appetizer.... More

The tables were sticky with food particles, there were cobwebs everywhere, and the dishes looked like they were from a flea market that didn't match and... More
