If you want to have a relaxing time then this is NOT the place for you! I was asked to leave while sitting AT THE NOISY BAR for talking on my cell phone! I was having a quiet conversation with my son and was asked to leave because the people next to me at THE VERY NOISY bar didn't like... More

The food has decent flavor, the lunch portions are very small and it's a little pricy. Our club stopped going there since you don't get much value for what you spend. I mean really, how much do a few more noodles and vegetables cost?

They were very busy, but our party of 6 was seated in a timely manner. The waiter was great and the food was good. I look forward to my next visit.

This restaurant is a favorite. While they fix American food, the Tai food is fabulous. Try the steam dumplings and seafood soup. We have eaten most of the entrees and never been disappointed. Nam Sod and Cellophane Noodle salad are delicious for a light meal. Do visit this gem. You will return!

We went there with a group of 14 people for lunch. I had heard about their Thai offerings and was anxious to try them. The lemon grass seafood soup was very good although a little pricey and the curry was excellent - just the right amount of curry and rice on the side. What surprised me was the quality of... More

Good food. Selections are American or Thai. Either are good. I have been here many times and recommend their Pas Thai dish. The service is quick and friendly, location accessible, and food selection excellent. I highly recommend this restaurant for good food.
