Great food, cool vibe. Lounge tunes and modern decor set the scene for a great date night or just yummy Thai food with friends/family. Creative cocktails with Asian twists complement a wide array of starters to share. Authentic mains are enticing and also difficult to choose just one! Food is served steaming hot and is beautifully presented. Bangkok fish is a hit out of the park! Spicy and delicious. My niece enjoyed her Pad Thai, too. We have added Songkran to our short list of regular spots.

Love this place for Thai Food. Love the artful atmosphere. The food is always fresh and as much spice as you like. With spice comes the need for lots of water and our glasses were always topped off.
Love the Tom Kha Gai soup as well as the Crispy Duck soup.

While the ambiance and the service were really good, It was very difficult to have a conversation. The noise level was pretty loud and everyone at the table had to speak above a normal level in order to hear each other or had to move close together in order to speak. As for the food, it was pretty good. Out of 3 dishes, a veggie pad thai, tofu Kang Kari, and a Kang Phet Ped Yang all served medium spicy, we only enjoyed two. The Pad Thai was not very flavorful and was pretty mild. The other two though had a really nice spice level that was not overbearing but made the dishes really stand out. We will definitely be back for the Tofu Kang Kari, but the Pad Thai left us desiring more. The dessert we got was the lychee and jackfruit creme brulee and this is something we found different and really enjoyable. We just wish there more on the plate!

My wife and I both had a soup as appetizer, Tom Kha Gai and the Tom Yum Goong. Tom Yum is pretty much the best soup on earth so I already had expectations going in. They did not disappoint! We had never tried Tom Kha Gai before and it was amazing. Hard to describe the flavor- delicate yet very flavorful. After the soups, my wife had the Pad Thai which she loved. I had the Poh Taek which was also new to me and I thought it was great. The fish and prawns were perfect. I had a few Chang beers and the wife had a drink called Red Lotus that she loved. I can’t recommend this place enough. We will be back soon.

We had dined at the Sugarland location many times and I preferred their space and menu better. I was disappointed they were out of two white wines I tried to order and no vegetarian menu(I saw one online)but they can accommodate veges by taking animal protein out of some dishes.
Accommodating service and nice decor.

It's got a creative menu for Thai food and is a step above the usual NitNoi knock-off drill. All of the food was really good. We especially enjoyed the short rib, and the lettuce wraps were way above par.

That said, I'd be a little surprised if it's around in a few years, especially at this high dollar location. The service was mediocre at best, primarily due to a language gap, but they can fix that.

I just don't see it getting the buzz it'll need to keep paying that rent, and that rent is only going to go higher as they finish pimping out Uptown Park. The faux-Thai decor feels a tad hackneyed, and the crowd was surprisingly dead for a Thursday night. Even post NitNoi, I can still get really good Thai food for a lot less money, and in general I think the Thai food craze is pretty much over.

It's unique and way above average, but probably not good enough to compete at this level in this part of town. Maybe they'd be better off at a slightly lower price point in a different location. This market is just too competitive. Maybe they should try The Woodlands. There's not much good Thai up there, if any. They'd kill it up there. Kill it.

We paid $20 for a glass of wine, stopped at HEB on the way home and bought a bottle of the same wine for $28. I honestly don't know whether that degree of markup is egregious or somewhat common, but I do know that it's a tad irksome.

We both enjoyed the special menu they had for Houston Restaurant Month. We also sat at the bar and enjoyed our conversation with the friendly bartender. Food is excellent.....rare to find Thai food of that quality and the ambience was cozy and a little bit elegant.
