We went here because we were going to a show that evening. Everyone was happy with their meal. The service was good and we got out in plenty of time to get to the theater.

Pedestrian food. Place was empty the day we went. Service was unattentive and shoddy and they still charged us a mandatory 16% tip. Will not go back.

My family and I stumbled into this place by accident and we were glad we did. It was busy, but the food was served quickly and it was delicious. It is one of the best Thai restaurants we have ever eaten at.
