Top quality, extremely tasty Thai food. The staff are very friendly and the decor of the restaurant is very well designed with a cool vibe. This is easily the best Thai restaurant within 10 miles. It also is reasonably priced.

Authentic Thai, the menu has a few items not found in many Thai restaurants including, jungle curry, weeping tiger, brilliant additions to the menu and rare to find. Super service, fantastic food. Like a lil corner of Bangkok.More
