I showed up and it was closed for renovation. I don't know why opentable accepted my res and confirmed it . This is usually a great spot. It didn't need renovation. But I showed up and it was closed.

We have been fans since they were located on 14th Street. We are so sad they are closing for 2 years due to the renovation at Colony Square. We are looking forward to trying their new restaurant in November.

Food was just okay. Didn't taste authentic, but my food was enjoyable. I had the pad prik king and it had a strong vinegar flavor to it... I actually enjoyed that but it tasted less like the pad prik red curry dish I am used to and more like some other ethnicity's cuisine -- maybe Chinese or Singaporean. The quality if the chicken (white meat) I ate was good.

One person in my party said his chicken was chewy and he did not care for it. The void was not even spicy hot for me -- despite my ordering it five out of four stars (not a mistake... I intentionally order above the star level because I do like it hot and most places cater to the masses that do not handle hot food well)

I also found the food to be expensive for Thai food

Overall the place is okay. I believe the restaurant will be relocating and opening with a new identity soon based on a sign near the door.

Restaurant is a bit bedraggled...we waited at hostess desk for a little bit before being acknowledged. Bathrooms need updating. Food was just ok. Service was fair.

Appetizer was pretty good, entrees were tasty, even if a little too much garlic was used. Service was barely adequate. I think it has the opportunity to be a top notch Thai restaurant, but it needs to increase service and food quality. I doubt I'd go back until I saw a review praising its service.

Crowded and quite loud. Hostess told us at the door that they were backed up and that they might not get our food in time for our theatre time. We ordered just cold appetizers and she made sure we got our food quickly. The food was good. Staff seemed generally overwhelmed and disorganized. The dining room and rest rooms could have been cleaner.

After 20 minutes and prompting from us, the waiter took our order. Couldn't answer questions about the menu. Appetizers arrived and no drinks. After another prompt, we got drinks. Once the food arrived, we never heard from the waiter again until he brought the bill (certainly not because they were busy). Woman, who appeared to a manager, used the excuse that the waiter was new. It's management's fault for not training rather than the waiter's fault.

Now about the food - to call it bland is kind. Thai food should taste like Thai food, spicy and fresh, not mushy like it came from a buffett. Thai food from a mall food court would have been better.

The hostess was more interested in texting someone, with her back to the hostess stand.

Overall horrible experience. Need new management or deep pockets to remain open. I gave it 1 star only because 0 was not an option. This was more than generous.
