Took the family. Everything was delicious. They had a wonderful kids menu. Quiet atmosphere. They took the time to not only have delicious, authentic Thai food but also a beautiful presentation.

It's our favorite, "must go to" place, whenever we visit. Great food, service and atmosphere. Decent price/value for a full sit down restaurant.

We eat here every time we visit HH. However, the quality of food and attention to detail seems to have gone downhill. We won't be back.

We visited last week and there was a children's menu printed on the regular menu. My 8-year old ordered chicken nuggets and fries from it. There were also some Thai dishes on the children's menu.
