One of the worst meals I have had. I agree with the "bad to worse" assessment. We went in for lunch, and the opening statement from the "thai" server was "We weren't supposed to be open today. We are going to close as soon as...More

We ate lunch there today. My almond chicken was delicious and my Mom thoroughly enjoyed her sweet and sour chicken. The new owners are young, friendly and enthusiastic. I can't wait to try the Thai dishes that they plan to add to the menu.

Well we found it, after a couple of near misses. Good thing too, 'cause the lunch was good and plenty. Served piping hot, fresh off the wok, as it should be. Don't expect fast food, as the service can be slow, but well worth the...More
