  • Not worthy of Top 10 in Santa Fe

    Dined on 9/18/2014
    I chose this restaurant for my 10th wedding anniversary dinner date based on the reviews I saw in the Santa Fe Reporter. I was disappointed at the very casual atmosphere (one big cafeteria-style room with full view & sound of kitchen). The food was mediocre at best. I ordered the mole enchiladas with turkey. They were not hot when delivered. The filling was primarily a sweet/tangy, raisin-like, gloppy sauce with small quantities of shredded turkey. The sides were incredibly basic: a cold shredded apple with cilantro, and white "coconut rice" which seemed to be missing the coconut. The service was amiable and competent. The general premise of a casual, low-guilt meal works, but the food is neither interesting nor well presented.

    Fun to discover this restaurant tucked away in an unexpected but central neighborhood. Inventive, healthy restaurant gives you plenty of interesting modern industrial architecture to enjoy. A few tables outdoors on the porch, surprisingly attractive even though bordering the parking lot. Friendly attentive service and exceptional Thai food on Wednesday evenings, at least currently. I hear the wine list is special. A community table handy is handy for singles who 's prefer conversation to peering at their smart phones when they eat.

    Would recommend this to anyone looking for the best on all levels. I'm a long-time local and a true gourmand…very selective when it comes to food, service and ambiance. This place is my new favorite. A friend and I went for the first time on Wed. night. It happened to be their night for Thai food…one of my favorites, but nothing to compare in Santa Fe. The perfect dining experience. Will go back and back and back… You get the idea!

    In a city of old dingy buildings it was lovely to have an open quiet new building in which to eat. The takeaway is in cloth bags all ready and waiting for call in orders so a fast pickup. The food was eclectic so choices for everyone and everything we ordered was very tasty. A basket of toys for the kiddos to use and lots of open space made it a great experience.

    Driving here was a bit disconcerting as this is tucked away in what appears to be more of a business area. The dinner meal was lovely and ambience sweet. Food interesting and delicious. Caesar salad was surprisingly very hot (jalapeno touch) and too much so almost for even this hot food lover. Harpist who also sang was a delightful surprise. The $20 sampling (salad or soup, smaller entree) was a perfect way to dine and taste the delectable choices.

    Their ingredients are top-notch and they accommodate food allergies of all types with great options. My husband and I both got the duck quesadilla (mine gluten-free on corn tortillas and his on flour). We were blown away at how tasty it was, perfectly cooked, and with a great combination of flavors. We split the gluten-free banana cream pie for dessert which was nothing short of a slice of heaven. Good service, great food. And there was lovely live music too. All in all a great night out.

    Disappointed
    Dined on 4/12/2014
    We were a party of 5, with 2 older people with hearing loss. The noise level was impossible for all of us, including one child! The food was fabulous; however, unless you love shouting, it is not a good place for a conversation. There is no sound absorption anywhere--high ceilings, stark walls, metal tables, metal chairs. Time to consult a sound engineer! Too bad as we will go back until something is done about the noise; however, an outdoor patio in the summer might be OK. It was hard to enjoy the evening, despite the excellent food. All of us couldn't wait to get out of the room.

    An excellent dinner. I am gluten/sugar/meat/dairy free, and it is rare that I can eat out and have anything other than salad or rice and beans. The spring rolls are wonderful, the entree was delicious and definitely not what I would cook at home (my gauge for justifying eating out). What a find! I highly recommend this restaurant!

    I love the concept! I love the fact that they are so environmentally conscious! The staff is lovely and the soft, live guitar music was superb! The wine on tap was GREAT! The food? Lacking…….Arugula salad with beets had few beets and was tasteless. Humus with pumpkin was dry and I only knew pumpkin was in there because of the menu listing, not the taste. Pasta with bolognese sauce was really salty. Ambiance was lovely and I will go again because their intention is awesome! A green eatery. YES….but I cannot recommend for culinary expertise as I did not think there was much…...

    We chose this restaurant because it was a farm to table place with great wines and local mead. We took four friends from out of town and while the space was cool and the food delicious although portions small our waiter was sucky at best. She was lack luster in everyway and it really influenced everyone's experience negatively. I was disappointed and felt bad for my guests.

    The setting is calm and relaxing, with fresh, eccentric decor. We started with the mussels, which could have been fresher. We had the chicken biryani which was overcooked. We also had the miso salmon which was amazing, nicely cooked with great flavor. The rice with both dishes was unflavored and disappointing. The service was fine, nothing noteworthy. We had a nice time but are not in a hurry to go back. I would only recommend if someone was specifically looking for lots of gluten or vegan free options.

    A friend and I were excited to try the Thai menu on a Wednesday night. It was disappointing to order dinner, and wait 45 minutes. Tables that sat after we did got their food first. The meals ordered were not complicated so why the long wait? The food was good but my friend's meal of fried rice with crab and shrimp (special of the night) had no taste of the seafood. Our waitress then overcharged us for the sake ordered but fixed the bill after we inquired. Use of a tablet to quickly show the bill made it a challenge. Not sure I'd go back.

    You don't have to sacrifice good taste, ambience, service, quality food - anything - if you want to avoid dairy (like me) and still have quality food made with good intentions. The four of us each enjoyed really super meals - pad thai, two different curries, rice pancakes. I didn't try the spring rolls but they looked great. The whole team were so responsive - they couldn't do enough to make your evening great - but I didn't find them intrusive either. A thumbs up unless you are looking for a junk food fix (and I don't!).

    I was really excited about trying this new place to us in Santa Fe. The place is attractive, and the musician playing Hawaiian music was a nice touch, but the food and service was disappointing. Dinner of pick three small plates for two of us - soup, salad and shrimp and grits, and the other person had soup and duck entrée. The squash soup special of the day was good, and the turkey tortilla soup was a mushy disappointment and was served warm - not hot, as soup should be. The salads were nice but the dressing was flat and tasteless. The shrimp and grits was just okay - gluey grits. The duck was ok - nothing special. Sadly, we won't go back.

    Very good experience. I thought my biriyani was a little light on the spice side, though texture of the rie was quite good. My wife loved the bolognese with buckwheat pasta. Soups were good (portions for cups were very large). Carrot cake, glutton free, continues to surprise me as to how good it is. After asking for ice tea our server walked by the table three times and neither brought it nor said it would be forthcoming soon.

    Have been eating there for some time, usually for breakfast and lunch. Food is always excellent and Wednesday Thai night is no exception. Good selection of gluten-free and vegan options if needed. I will usually go for the special since I am a frequent customer but have never had anything bad here. Staff are friendly and attentive. Kids table and community tables are available at lunch. As someone who can be bothered by noise, I have rarely noticed it here, it is the 'good' kind of dining noise, not loud music or loud guests.
