    This was our first time at this place. We ended up sitting outside as the weather was gorgeous and they have a nice patio…this is a good thing because the restaurant (inside) was packed and a bit loud for my taste…. The food was superb, the service was very good as well. We enjoyed the experience overall and will go back. The signature drinks were ok, nor bad, but there’s certainly better options if that’s your vibe around Houston. After a signature drink I went for a beer which went down very smoothly with their green curry.

    Tried appetizer platter and two main dishes, all were delicious! Staff was very attentive and mgr stopped by to make sure everything was to our satisfaction. Great cocktails, who doesn't love a drink in a whole pineapple, and then switched to wine. Nice to see a good Russian River Chard on the menu. Lounge singer was good and we didn't have to yell over her to have a conversation. Gotta a feeling this one's going to do just fine. =)

    Fantastic Thai food, great service!!! I love this place!! Always greeted when we come in the door, everyone is so friendly!! The music is not the best, sounds like millennial techno, not my favorite for dining out, but this restaurant is one of my top ten go-to’s in Houston.

    We enjoyed the restaurant week menu. Sat in the “courtyard” which is really a patio. They have space heaters for between weather days. Service was great and food was great. A bit pricey. I could have easily split my meal as portions are generous.

    The food was extremely fresh and prepared perfectly. Presentation was excellent. I usually have Pad Thai to judge a Thai restaurant and it was excellent. They have a unique preparation where they enclose it in an egg turnover. The high top tables are a little difficult for older people to sit at.

    Very limited vegetarian options. They may have premade curries with Shrimp paste. So they weren’t able to substitute.

    We regret to hear that your expectation was wanting more vegetarian options. We do our best to accommodate all dietary restrictions (Vegetarian, Gluten free, Peanut allergies etc.) without compromising authentic flavors that makes Thai food so deliciously complexed. Thank you for understanding and valuable feedback. Best regards, Susan L GM

    The service was great. The food is okay. Not super flavorful at all. We ordered the drunken noodles, the chx/shrimp fried rice, and the app sampler. Unlike most Thai restaurants, the food is not that spicy and they were not able to make most dishes spicy. Overall I give it an 7/10.

    Thank you for your valuable feedback, We can certainly adjust the spice level for you or put on the side. We serve the fried rice with a side sauce so that you to adjust to your liking. Please do try my personal favorites on your next visit: pork skewers, glass noodle salad and Pad thai just to name a few. See you back soon! Warm regards, Susan L GM

    The service was terrible. Had to request the menu, we had to request servant to get our orders and etc. It was just a terrible experience. We were celebrating our daughter 43rd birthday. The whole experience spoiled the celebration. The food was average.
