I have been to Thailand and eaten at over 30 Thai restaurants and this restaurant is one of the best. Go for the Massamun Beef Curry with the "Larb Chicken" (Larb Gai) as an appetizer. Reasonably priced and very good.

Nice to have a Thai place in walking distance of the office. So I have supper there when I work late and lunch when friends visit.

I'm being kind. I lived in Northern Thailand and have visited twice more since then. There was nothing that could be called "Thai" in my Pad Thai, flavor-wise. Carrots, broccoli and cabbage don't belong in this dish. Service was fine. Decor and atmosphere are OK...More
