Expensive considering the food was just ok. And they didnt accept credit card. Also a bit slow. But place was clean. And portion of the veg was quite big. If you were Asian you would think its just average.

Had a great meal here. Very friendly staff who spoke good English. Veggi stir fry was delic! Husband had the local laab and it was good to try. May not be a personal favorite but you could tell it was cooked well. Prices cheap

Really good comfort food. We had the red-curry stir fry with rice. It was mild, creamy, perfectly seasoned and comforting. We each ordered tilapia and chicken as protein of choice and both were tasty!
