We liked pretty much everything about this restaurant. The only thing that was a bit off was the service. Our waiter seemed to have no idea what he’s doing. It felt a bit weird when he talked to us.

I’ve eaten twice at Khe-yo. First for lunch which was wonderful and then for dinner which was overpriced and underwhelming. When you order a shrimp dish for $32 you expect to get more than 3 medium sized shrimp. I’m not expecting to be stuffed and I know that good ingredients are not cheap but this is not acceptable and I won’t be coming back.

The place is cute, the food is uneven but tasty. I was meeting a dear old friend and wanted to talk. I specified in my reservation that we wanted a quiet table.

The restaurant was mobbed. It was unbearable screaming-decibel painfully loud inside, so loud we couldn't hear each other or the server. We moved to an outdoor table on a rainy night. The table was metal and too small for the dishes. Water dripped from the table. I expected to get a whole fish ($68 entree) in my lap.

We would have liked the restaurant in spite of the high prices if the noise level had been tolerable, the seating comfortable, more generous table size. Our waitress was clearly doing her best to keep up.

We chose to leave after the entree and go elsewhere for coffee and dessert and conversation.

I have been here a few times and the food is not as good as it used to be. The coconut sticky rice was too sweet and did not have enough sausage in it. The ribs were tough and the green beans that came with the ribs were too sour as well.

Nick was an awful host. All our food came out at one time, I understand the concept of dishes coming out ‘when they are ready’ but assumed there would be some staggering, especially between appetizers and mains - meaning not all with in five minutes.

We politely asked our waitress if the large plates could be taken away, or at served at least after the appetizers and she was very accommodating. Then Nick showed up and told us that wasn’t going to happen and we were told to leave. Lots of questions? We do to. Thanks Nick.

Oh and then he told opentable we were a no show.

We’ve been happy customers for five years. Not anymore.

We went for restaurant week, which was the first mistake, but then all of our food, appetizers and entrees came out of the kitchen at once. Then we waited a full 10 minutes for our bottle of wine. The curry shrimp was more sugar than spice...and there was only 6 small shrimp in a huge pile of rice.... We were hoping for more authentic south east Asian style food and we left seriously disappointed.

Great food! Very unique and interesting. I am from Southeast Asia and I had not tried some of these dishes before. The pork belly rolls and the prawn curry were excellent. The papaya salad was great too, although quite spicy! (in fairness, the waiter did warn us thoroughly beforehand).
