If I passed this restaurant on the street, I wouldn't go in - the entrance is not inviting. However the restaurant itself is cosy and inviting.
My colleague and I had a crazy cocktail each. His was a coconut carved out to hold some concoction including coconut rum. Mine was a pineapple also containing a mix of rums.

The imperial spring rolls with tofu were delicious, and I also enjoyed the pad thai noodles. I'll be back here again I think - it was a nice relaxed place to have dinner.

Nice Thai restaurant a little on the pricey side.

We had the duck and veggie curry which were both good.

We went with a large group, and also the restaurant was very busy, they were very flexible. The fish I had and the legumes were delicious - as the very quick and friendly service.

The service is wonderful---what you'd expect of a suberb restaurant; yet the sense is not that of a super-elegant place requiring fancy dress. The food----ooooooh soooooo good. melt in your mouth appetizers, tremendous soup, fascinating flavors in delicious entrees. I'd eat there at least monthly except it is a two-hour drive from home, so it is our to go place whenever we are in SF---which is amazing considering the amazing restaurants in that great city.

Came to this restaurant on the recommendation of a friend. We had pad Thai and panong beef curry. Both were delicious, but the beef curry was amazing! It was like a mix of pulled pork and curry- so tender! The staff we very welcoming and never let our water get below half a glass. We also thought it was great value as we ended up bringing home leftovers. I highly recommend this restaurant if you like Thai food.
