We ordered Siam wing (this is sweet taste), Thai pad se-ew(is very very good), spicy eggplant(good as well), but fried beef with garlic and pepper taste BAD. The price is gratuity included. The environment is pleasure, staff is also friendly. Good place to go.

Crispy pork was very fatty. Food was mediocre. Ambiance was blah. Scallop dish was very fair. I will not go there again.
