    The appetizers are really good. If you want spicy then make sure you get the Thai spicy. Other levels are pretty mild.

    I don't think of this place as near authentic, but it serves a spectacular asian fusion dishes. The spiciness is thai-spicy so expect sweat and some tears 😭

    Pad Thai was great! Comes with chili powder though and I hate spicy food so I'll just ask for no chili powder next time

    The Thai Burger with cilantro-lime mayo and zippy green papaya sauerkraut is a delicious twist on a burger.

    Had the spring rolls, soft shell crab, and the oysters. ALL 3 were tasty and amazing, and not too heavy or overly filling. Definitely coming back!

    Start with the kabocha fries, then the pad Thai (it's better than average, a lot lighter than other spots in the area).

    Loved the Thai "sweet potato fries" and the pad see ew was pretty yummy. Green curry has a kick!

    Pad Thai is delicious. Small portion made me wonder how small are their small dishes? In any case DON'T set at the bar you'll be forgotten. I probably won't come back.

    The food is absolutely delicious and top notch. Place sometimes is a bit crowded, noisy and subpar in maintenance.

    Fantastic Thai food. Pad Thai with whatever you want is just great. Always full, though.

    If they have the duck pad Thai special, get it. Crispy fried duck is a great touch and the noodles, delicious.

    Crazy as it sounds, the Lamb “massaman” Roti Potpie is damn good. Even though it does just have a paratha on top!

    The Kee Mao and hard thai iced tea were a good combo. Make a reservation on opentable to avoid any waiting.

    Spring rolls are great, green curry is good, skip the zucchini pad Thai - totally under seasoned

    While the Thai Burger was incredible, we have to recommend the veggie favorite, Baked Tofu in Banana Leaf. We wanted to give up meat for good.

    Each meal with Chef Hong is truly inspiring. You must say hello — look for a beautiful Thai woman in their open kitchen.

    Looks unprepossessing from the outside, but don't be deterred. The food is delicious & wholesome - and the wine list very good, indeed!

    Thai Burger: Mouthwatering goodness. The burger is ground beef infused with lemongrass and topped with shredded papaya.

    This is a great place. I can tell it will be successful. The curry fries, grilled chicken, & house-made sodas are excellent.

    Must try the strawberry chilli and Ginger sodas which are made in the house. Also try the yam fries, they are delicious.

    Cool space, interesting menu but had the pad see ew and it was pretty much a bowl of noodles in sugar.

    Get the Thai taco, but skip the red curry (bland) and the lamb massamen (also bland with too much sweet potato)
