Fantastic as always. Thai burrito and fish tacos are not to be missed. Very crowded when we visited but they squeezed us in.

I was in Mendocino for a night visiting from Los Angeles and found this restaurant doing a google search for food. I was very pleased. The staff was very friendly and it was super close to the Inn I was staying at. I had the steamed mussels and thai hot pot. A+.
