Don't look for ambience - but expect exquisite and reasonably priced Thai cuisine. This is a small restaurant that could be called, at kindest, "unpretentious." Forget about power lunches, major anniversaries or anything similar here. But it's clean and perfectly fine for a midweek meal...More

We came here a year ago and it was great. This time we picked up, found a hair in the vegetarian curry and the vegetable chicken dish did not have much taste. No comparison to last time. Shame. Very friendly service though.

Good lunch place. Small and cozy. Tom yam soup is good. The place is a little tight. Not too long a wait time during lunch time.
