We were a party of 4. Dining room is very small, and orders are placed at the counter on the way in. Very casual, but excellent food and friendly staff.

I had heard the food was great and had to try it myself. I had the massaman curry with chicken medium spiced with rice. Amazing but spicy. Service was great. You can pickup or eat in
