    Get in by 11:30 for a good seat for lunch. Stay away from the uber-bland Chicken Curry Naan-wich. Their other stuff was good.

    Still a fan of the classics: Rad na thai chicken and the calamari salad. But add extra calamari to your salad, it's WAY better that way.

    Lots of douchebags and the glass looking in to the bathrooms is terrible but good food. Not enough to make up for the hipster douchers perhaps but still good.

    It's a martini bar, so I guess you should try one of them. BUT Lobster Mashed potatoes are a must!

    Go for the atmosphere. Food isn’t bad but a little overrated - the onion soup dumplings came out looking great but were just alright. Rad na noodle salad was pretty plain
