Food is average. Husband has had good luck with noodle dishes. Wife could not even eat her last meal. The shrimp was slimy and bad tasting. OK if you are a big Thai food fan but if you are not, stay away.

Not the best Thai I've had. Atmosphere was ok and the prices were a bit steep for Thai food.

On entering the doorway to Mekala's, my daughter and I had the most startling experience. We must have become invisible to the wait staff! Through some extraordinary twist in the universe they literally were unable to see us!! No one brought us water, no one...More
