Absolutely love this place. When you sit down they bring you an amazing vegetable soup. I personally love the Chefs special rice with chicken (Kao Pad Bai Horapa)!! It's got everything Hot, cool, spicy, sweet, really complex flavoring! Def. a must try!Most of my family swears by the Pad Thai. Both the Chef and owner are really nice people always... More

Beware, visitors! First, the food is super expensive, although, good (that's why giving two stars). But what sucks is the service and over charges. We had multiple bad experiences here. About a year ago, they reduced the size of the serving and the lady owner/chef/waitress added 25% gratuity on the bill of about $40 for two people without our consent.... More

A sweet older couple runs this restaurant. The gentleman will help you with suggestions on spiciness. My son ordered the pad thai and he loved it. I had the red curry and, while it was not the best I've ever had, it too was very good. There was more than enough of the pad thai to make my teenage son... More

The inside of the restaurant lacked lighting for day time. The food was over priced. Do not be shocked to see a 20% Gratuity tagged to your bill.

Wonderful place with amazingly delicious food in a quiet, elegant and friendly atmosphere. Every dish is presented beautifully. Garnishes are taken to a new level. I have no complaints, only praise. I'm so glad we tried it out!!

We ate there December 7 for lunch and thought everything was wonderful. The atmosphere is very inviting. We were immediately greeted, seated and given menus. Service was great and the food was wonderful with enough food to take home for dinner. We will definitely be going back soon!

An elegant experience though a bit pricy it's well worth it as the food was diverse and amazingly good.

The title tells it all! The coconut rice that my husband and I ordered had small black bugs in it, the size of small ants. I found like 3 in my bowl, and my husband found 2 bugs in his rice. I googled and those turned out to be 'grain weevils', bugs that live in grains. Google them if interested... More

The owners were very friendly and we were seated immediately. The food was excellent but for the two of us we had one starter each, one main course each plus rice and I had a dessert. Also had a bottle of wine and the bill came to over $100 which is very overpriced for a Thai restaurant.
