Love this place! The waitress accidentally dropped Tom yum soup on me lol but I didn't care cause food was so bomb! Her service was good in general that was just a mistake. Get garlic edamame!! And Tom yum soup!
Tasty Thai food that is Americanized but still fun for adventurous eaters. Come try! My crew of 4 came here on a brisk Tuesday at 7 PM for dinner. No wait. Street parking. Food: A -We all had teas ($3.50 each). We ordered green tea and jasmine. All served and refilled in cutesy tea cups. -Frog Legs ($9). I love frog legs and don't eat it enough. So when I saw it on the menu I was stoked. This is a delicious dish and I recommend. -Tom Yum Noodle Soup ($12). Also delicious and finished it. Service: A -Quick and not overtly friendly. I would totally come back! Its a cutesy Thai restaurant and even if you're a lone eater its cool. I appreciate that their menu has some "adventurous" items.
I was a little underwhelmed by the food here, though my overall experience was good.  Place was bright and clean. We tried the summer rolls, pad thai (chicken), and orange chicken with what they called brown rice (it was actually a kind of red rice, probably Korean).  It was lunchtime, so lunch specials (basically half a dinner portion) was available, including some flute-shaped egg rolls that were just OK. - Summer rolls were basically two small spring rolls cut in half.  Not particularly flavorful or remarkable. - The pad thai was very heavy in bean sprouts and difficult to parse out the noodles -- while this is healthier, it made it difficult to serve this dish with my small kids. The flavoring was also very... subdued. - The orange chicken was soggy and flavor also not very pronounced.  The red rice that came with it, however, was fragrant and cooked perfectly.  I'd come back just to try more dishes with this rice. On the upside, they have a virgin mojito. I've had quite a bit of Thai food, so I'm sure this skews my review quite a bit.
