A sub-par restaurant; the service is pathetic where the waiter would not even check for the spice level and brings something that is bland and sour. We went out there for a family dinner and was truly disappointed. Not worth visiting.

Pad Thai's Thai food is an appropriate choice for gourmands new to this cuisine. For someone more seasoned, it is a disappointment. The spice element of the food is dumbed down considerable, perhaps to suit local tastes. However, that makes it relatively unauthentic. We had...More

First time visiting restaurant, but won't be my last. Great food, esp the cream puffs- similar to "Crab Rangoon," but maybe rating among the best I've ever had. Ate with two colleagues and their spouses, all enjoyed their food. Plus, they make it easy to...More
