Quaint miner's cottage on Elk Ave CB main drag. Good was basic Thai/Asian w serious firepower in the spice intensity dept. Ventilation was poor. Exited stinking of spice. Mellow service. Massive spring rolls.

The food is excellent and very well presented. Our only recommendation is to book a table as you generally cannot walk in and be seated. The outside area during summer is a wonderful place to enjoy your meal.

My wife had the rogan gosht, and I had the lamb korma. Both were quite tasty, and portions were large. Service was prompt and friendly. If you like pan-Asian food, you'll love this cozy, unpretentious, little restaurant. My only suggestion would be that they use...More

I imagine they are listed on-line with a phone number. I just walked in and sat at the bar. It seemed to be a very popular spot though.
