Just happened upon this spot for lunch today, on my first day in Seattle. What an awesome find. I will definitely try to make it back at some point. Food and service were both exceptional.

Lots of delicious Asian Fusion food. Great Mango Sticky Rice desert. Very friendly comfortable, relaxed dining. Lots of vegetarian choices and separate vegetarian menus available.

The food was amazing. I had the satay chicken, laksa soup, and panang beef curry. The rest of the menu looked quite delicious, so it took me a while to settle on these. I would gladly go back and spend another half hour agonizing over the menu, after which I may still get the same thing because to really was that good. Only reason I don't give it 5 stars is the price, it's a little steep for this kind of food.

The food here is extremely hit or miss. Sometimes it is amazing and sometimes it is just awful; also everything is served family style. The one good thing is that their drink prices during happy hour is $5, but it is extremely hard to flag down a waiter. Their one saving grace is their drinks and the duck has always been pretty good every time I have had it.

I have never written a review before but after my meal tonight, I have to try and stop others from making a similar mistake. The food was decent, I'll give them that but my "5oz" meal that had cost $14.50 plus tax and tip (because that poor waiter was freaking awesome) could have had more zing to it. I ended up walking out paying over twenty dollars on myself alone. Take it upon yourself and go to a more authentic Thai place with spice ratings on the menu because that is where the flavor truly is, my friends.

Average presentation, average flavor, average service, small servings, above average cost, especially for a restaurant labeled $$ by Google/Zagat. There are better choices.

This review is a long time coming and I'm afraid whether it is late to describe my experience there, it just came to my mind that I ought to review this terrible place. I brought my young girlfriend there after going to the ballet on December 21st, 2012, probably the fanciest date I've ever been on, in spite of going to this dive of a pseudo-fancy restaurant. I had fond memories of coming here as a child when my mom's boyfriend took me to a night on the town and exposed me to the fine arts scene. [I'm not from Seattle, I only go there for the Symphony and Ballet these days], in any case I had a fond memory of the fragrant duck. The fragrant duck I had again when Wild Ginger was catering the triple door, I believe in 2008 or 2009. In any case I was excited to have it again since duck in my mind is a delicacy, it truly is more fragrant than the factory-farmed fowl we have in our grocery stores. When the duck arrived it was buried underneath a mountain of garnish, possibly to hide the poor quality of the meat, and the fact that it was chicken. I asked the waiter, (who looked like a washed-up italian mobster) if he could verify that this was in fact duck. He assured me that it was duck, in a rude and surly tone, even going so far as to swear to God it was duck. He then gestured toward my girlfriend's plate and said, see, that's chicken. We never serve duck on the bone. I then retrieved from my own plate a chicken leg, complete with bone. I can't recall his response but I remember it was escalated and very rude, on par with service at maybe an Italian pizzeria in NYC. It was an absolute travesty when compared to the origins of the restaurant. In any case, I know the difference between duck and chicken. I'm not sure if they discontinued duck entirely or if the kitchen had simply run out that night, but in any case the waiter's rudeness made this an entirely unpleasant experience. Although the sauce they served with the chicken was what I remembered and was very good.

Good food at unjustified prices. I'm sure many of the waitstaff are wonderful, but my server was inattentive (checked in once total), inconsiderate that I was dining alone (didn't bother to skip the family-style serving, with the separate plate and serving spoon with each dish for...who else, exactly?), and casually upsold me on dessert without mentioning it would cost a significant amount more. Maybe once they quit treating solo diners like outcasts they could begin to ask $40 a meal. As an airline employee, I'm familiar with eating by myself, and this was an appalling experience compared to most fish-and-chips shacks, much less candlelit tables.
