The food is excellent. Worth 5stars.
The service superb.
The price reasonable and it is BYOB.
The atmosphere is a split rating both very good and in my judgement poor.
Outside seating
Inside ... Much too dark.
We shall return but only in the warm weather when we can sit outside.

Thank Richard S

I had lunch here with a friend recently. We ordered a trio appetizer and a main course each. My appetizer included a muddled tuna tartar dish that was obviously prepared long before I arrived. The avocado had turned brown. I had the duck salad for my main course and while it was taste, I recall thinking our meals have a lot of filler and little substance. it was clearly way overpriced. I felt it was like a fast food machine -- get them in and out as fast as possible. They were very interested in turning the tables. focus on the quality ad not quantity like you did when you first open years ago. Would I go back? Probably not!

I have never had a bad meal here
The soft shell crabs are as amazing when they are on special. If not the whole fish in tamarind sauce is to die for. And the mussels in Thai basil are so good!

The food is generally very good, and some dishes are excellent. We have tried many with friends or by ourselves. The cooking is on the sweet side. One dish was simply too sweet for me. Other than that, great taste.

Excellent food, great night out with significant other or a group of friends. If your children can behave in public, OK to bring. Quite atmosphere, romantic. BYOB
