This is NOT your typical Thai restaurant. And when I say that, I mean it in a good way. The food here is prepared with spices and flavors that will absolutely excite you (warning: some dishes will be very spicy). The space is quite cozy but bringing a group to order more dishes and share is probably the best way to experience more...because believe me, that is what you want! A nice selection of beer and wine to choose from and the staff is just so friendly it's hard not to smile. I already look forward to going back again!

Came in on my own on a late Saturday afternoon and got a spot at the bar right away. Only tried one dish as I was alone. Before ordering, the server warned me that the dish I ordered, the green curry chicken rice noodle was very spicy and it definitely lived up to her description. Do not order if you can't handle spice! I enjoyed it though - chicken was tender and the rice noodles are different from your usual vermicelli or pad Thai noodles. Thai iced tea was legit as well. I would definitely come back and try some of the other dishes.

Small restaurant but friendly staff. Expect a decently long wait if you show up after 7. The shrimp and calamari dish was out of this world amazing. I plan to return just for that! The fried fish was boring so I’d skip that. We also had the grilled prawns which were nice but next time, we plan to stick to the more saucy dishes.
