Cuisine was fair. Flavors subtle and portions adequate. The service was on par. The servers were attentive. If anything was needed they were quick to assist. The dinning room had two sections, with each one having a definite Asian flair. The costs is about 55 dollars for 2 appetizers, 1 shared entrée, 1 8oz bottle of sake, 2 bottles of... More

Serviceable, but the Thai food here was uninspiring and really missing either interesting spiciness or crisp fresh flavors. The place may be confused as the other half of the space is a Japanese restaurant and everything coming our of a common kitchen. The place was dead at 7:30 PM on a Tuesday even though a convention was in town just... More

Casey, it's honestly pretty surprising to hear that your visit here wasn't as inspiring as it could've been. We pride ourselves on offering authentic, flavorful Thai dishes in a culturally immersive atmosphere, so I regret that didn't come through for you. This is fairly out of the ordinary for us, but I'll be keeping your input in mind for sure.... More

After we told them we wanted regular Thai food, they brought it and it was excellent. They admitted they make their food to "please their tourists" (no spicy). As we are out of town, we couldn't understand why the real state development was so dead. It was creepy! It was a nice restaurant in the water front why is no... More

It's fantastic to hear that we could give you the Thai flavors you were craving, Angelica!

With that said, your star rating suggests that we still have some room to... More
