    Excellent food!! My sister cleaned her plate. If you like spicy, this is your spot. Had the green curry and pad kee mao with beef. Perfect balance of noodles, basil, and veggies.

    One of our favorites. We booked a reservation for Valentine's Day, and had a quiet table upstairs. It was lovely!

    The food is absolutely fantastic. Great selection, good portion sizes and we really liked that there were so many options to meet our dietary requirements. The staff was very nice, accommodating to our requests (mostly around dietary restrictions) and very attentive. Well priced and an all around lovely atmosphere. We’ll definitely be back

    Excellence all around. Great atmosphere and very delicious Thai food. I've gone here six times for lunch, and neither myself nor my coworkers have been disappointed. I went once during happy hour, and the drinks were very good. The service has always been excellent.

    Food is always consistent! I love that its super fresh and never oily. Service is always on point! We had the garlic green beans, pad thai, shrimp and green beans (which is the catfish dish) and a few mock tails.

    The food was pretty good but service was just terrible. Drinks took 20 minutes to arrive. Water refills were tough to come by. Our party of 5 was still charged 20% gratuity even though their policy is to add gratuity to parties of 6 or more. It's a shame as the food was pretty good. But bad service will kill you.
