Lively neighborhood spot with a stylish interior serving Thai food & Asian-inspired cocktails.- Google
"For food, I like the steak with peanut butter sauce and the tamarind shrimp."
"The stuffed eggplant was pretty bad but the wok-fried lamb was ok."

This is a very reliable lunch place. I always know what my food will taste like and it always comes out quickly. We go here a lot with new interviewees at my job. I really like their penang curry with eggplant, but I've also heard good things about their pad thai. The serving sizes are decent and not too overpriced.

Interesting how crowded it is for how mediocre the food is. I guess it fills up a need for the location. The service was not that great either, the waitress had blank eyes. They had Roti on the menu which is quite unusual for a Thai place, we ended up being served a so-so $8 roti-based appetizer when we ordered a $3 plain roti. The stuffed eggplant was pretty bad but the wok-fried lamb was ok. The Pad Thais ordered by our friends looked uninspiring. The place itself looks nice but while shiny on the outside it appears their health score was 54/100 last year.

Courteous staff, bangin' Pad Thai, HEAVY PORTION SIZE....1 orfer of Pad Thai can easily be split into 2 and pricing is moderate. Great date spot, but the area where the restaurant is located is bad. Highly recommended.

Always the goto Thai restaurant for Soma. That being said, the Pad Thai Spicy version is horrendously spicy. I have no idea what i was thinking,. Mistakes were made.

Being an visiting asian in the US, we always thought it's difficult to find good asian food there, but boy, were we wrong. This place is extremely popular, and they serve pretty decent food too! Of course, don't expect the authentic Thai taste.

The best happy hour you will ever experience. Also, generally good food, a great Gewurztraminer on tap, and a good vibe. I would highly recommend it, particularly given their proximity to City Beer Store, Cellarmaker, and a bunch of other places. Great restaurant! (Particularly for happy hour)

Me and my boyfriend got the Pad Thai and it was delicious! Not to mention the waiter was super friendly and the owner stopped by our table to say hello and fill us in on some Thai culture. Nothing but friendly faces, nice atmosphere and good food here! Can't wait to go back!
