The vibes of this restaurant are immaculate. Perfect date spot. It's so warm for outdoor dining with the personal heat lamp and the floral/ twinkle light ceiling are beautiful. The staff is so welcoming and the service was amazing. There were four of us and we shared the sampler appetizer. Everything was crispy and cooked perfectly. For entrees we got the Pad Thai, Pad See Ew, Crying Tiger Beef, and Panang Curry and everything was SO GOOD. 10/10 will be going back!

My husband and I found this restaurant to be incredibly warm and inviting and perfect for a quiet date night. We dined at 5:30 pm on a Saturday. We started with the crispy veggie spring rolls with plum sauce. We each had an entree and both were really wonderful. The staff was very friendly and attentive. Will definitely be returning.

I would maybe recommend to a friend and maybe would return. We asked for 'spicy' on our dishes which included hot peppers and the dishes were bland until we complained and the waitress reluctantly brought a little bowl of special hot sauce which improved things greatly. Dishes advertised with vegetables had very few.

My wife and I had a fantastic lunch. We share a chicken sate which was the best we have had for a very long time. We live in Asia for six years and crisscrossed Thailand.

My wife had a shrimp Pad Thai and I had a roast duck Pad Thai - both we excellent. We finished with a refreshing selection of mocha covered ice cream.

The staff were helpful and attentive.

I recommend it.
