Anyone been to Jao?

I am debating whether to make reservations or not. There are so many great places I don't want to make a mistake!

It's one of the few I have not tried, but will this winter.

I'ts owned by the same couple that run PaCri. A bit on the expensive side for Thai, pad thai is E25 (2008 prices I'm quoting). Appys and dim sum E13-20, entrees E21-30. "perfumed" white rice is E6.

You might want to think about La Mandala, prices run about the same, with a great sunset location.

And Le Vietnam is one of my all time faves for lunch, I had a great pad thai last year and it ran about E12.

I have been there a few times. I loved the food, the atmosphere. However, I am not planning to return. It was very expensive, about $100, not Euros, which I felt was too expensive even for St. Barth. It it were not for the cost, I would rush back.
