Diner Reviews
  • "My friends were late for the reservation I made, thus my table was given away after 15 minutes. It took a while for them to seat us but once were seated everything was fine. I had cocktails at the bar which were okay but not great. I thoroughly enjoyed my meal! I had the duck tortilla wrap for appetizer. It was very good and hit the spot. My main course was lantern's fried rice with chicken. It was a good portion and delicious. Overall I had a good experience here and I would come back again."

  • "The fish is on the money and the Shrimp Pad Thai was great too. The drink I order was a little heavy in the alcohol and really light in the Pineapple juice but overall experience was good. The waiters were great!!!"

  • "The drinks are awesome! Had the avocado tofu appetizer (don't like avocado but decided to try it anyway) it was amazing! Really liked the atmosphere. Didn't have to sit terribly close to the people next to us like a lot of other restaurants which was nice. It was also smaller than I expected but great for a date night or even a small bday dinner. The food, drinks and atmosphere was great! Definitely recommend it!"

  • "The food was a bit greasy but a few more inventive offerings than some standard Thai restaurants. Also, seemed to have some nice steamed fish offerings, curries and vegetarian options. Nice decor and boisterous ambience. Good drink specials."

  • "The restaurant location was great, on the corner of 2nd/18th, very easily accessible. The restaurant itself is nicely set up and very easy for big groups to go to. The food was excellent, no complaints in that regard. Their service, very very poor. They didn't have small plates to split up the food family style, so the table space was very limited. Always looking for a waiter to get extra utensils or napkins as they had a tendency to disappear off the table. Just be prepared for weaker service but worth it for the food and the fact that it can easily accomodate a bigger group."

  • "The Crispy Duck Wrap for the appetizer was PHENOMENAL I felt like I was melting when I took my first bite. Scrumptious! If you're up in the air about appetizers.. CHOOSE THAT ONE!!!!"

  • "Our appetizers were mediocre at best, but the main meal (combination of curries, pad thai and drunken noodles) was all quite good. The drinks were also pretty good. The staff was a bit slow at times, but friendly and accommodating. Ambiance was nice, and the restaurant was smaller than I had expected. This place is definitely worth trying, but skip the disappointing appetizers."
