Delicious thai food, great service. We stayed at a nearby hotel and this was some of the best thai food we have ever had. The Shrimp Panang and Tom Kha were both super!

They had a special appetizer (samosa) of the day that was simply scrumptious. We also had Pad Thai that was very authentic tasting and full of flavor. The yellow curry with chicken was yummy too. Definitely will go back and often.
