A very authentic place, with options for everyone. Some of the food is traditional dishes that you could find in other places. While other dishes are more exotic and unique, a dish for every type of palette. The spice ratings should be taken seriously though. A rating or two peppers is more than twice as spicy as a one, and a 3 pepper rating is far more than 3 times as spicy.

This place is anything but authentic. The decks and staff are wonderful but the food clearly is prepared for an American palate. Food is heavily and overly seasoned with soy sauce and sugars making it taste more like a French dessert than a Thai dish. Vegetables are used sparingly, the emphasis here definitely is on proteins. There are many, more authentic, and less diabetic-coma-inducing Thai restaurants in the area. Prices are above average here, and portions are a bit smaller. But again, the decor is splendid, they have a bar, and the staff is fabulous and friendly. If you don't mind a heavily Americanized Thai food experience and are more interesting in atmosphere (e.g., a great place to take a date), this is the place for you. Otherwise, look elsewhere, especially if you're seeking authentic Thai food (like King & I and Sweet Basil deliver).

Wasn't impressed, but also wasn't disappointed... Stuck somewhere in between. I had lunch from the lunch special menu and while tasty, I wasn't blown away. The cost to portion ratio was a bit off. I felt like I overpaid. The place was also a bit noisier than anticipated. Everyone was on top of each other so I could hear every conversation around me. Maybe dinner is better, but I can think of other alternatives that I would have preferred.

Food is good and a decent size menu. Staff is friendly. Attentiveness of staff needs a little boost. Seemed a little short staffed for a Saturday night. Able to customize your order which is always a plus. Decor is very nice, I like the color scheme.

Every dish I have had here has been excellent! The service is good - sometimes their weak point - but the food more than makes up for any delays in service. The prices are definitely higher than other places but to be expected for the location.
