I've always enjoyed it.... – .....true it is dark, try going for lunch and sit near the patio, the food is still very good, and the service is usually the best I've found. The Thai staff are always very friendly and helpful, that's just the way they are. Try asking for something authentic.......

Poor at best – Dark inside. High prices. Weak flavors. A big disappointment I won't bother again

Dark and dreary – Not good, dark inside. Portions were small and not as tasty as most Thai restaurants. Not as bad as Thaifoon but not that much better.

Delicately seasoned Thai food in a downtown location ideal for the lunchtime and pre-theater crowd. – The Scene
Surprisingly bright overhead lights contrast with the dark wood interior--a vestige of the former steakhouse. Thai helmets, wall hangings and flaming wall sconces are nice touches. Adults can spend an evening in conversation or enjoy an early meal before a downtown event.

The Food
Clearly prepared with the American palate in mind, the food is mildly spiced. Among the appetizers, try the lightly fried calamari, or the flavorful chicken or beef satay with peanut and cucumber sauces, but skip wontons made with imitation crab. The soups are standouts: Both Tom Kha Gai, thick with chicken and vegetables in a creamy coconut broth, and Po Tak, laden with seafood in broth sparkling with lemon grass, Kaffir lime leaf and Thai basil--can be ordered in a meal-sized portion. Curries are generous platters of brightly colored vegetables and tender meats, and the seafood dishes like steamed sea bass are house specialties.

The best Thai food in town – I love Thai food and this is the best Thai so far. The patio seating is so nice and comfortable. My server is so helpful and friendly. I think portion is generous and prices are very resonable. My recommendation is flaming duck and Pad Thai.

Better than Thaifoon – This food is a lot better than Thaifoon which is in the same neighborhood. The inside looks like a mens club or steakhouse which is a little unsettling. The staff is competent and the food is much better than the Thai Siam. The pricing is a little steep for my tastes but there are some specials.

Apparently there is some connection with Bangkok Thai whick is my favorite.

UPDATE NOW CLOSED

Wonderful Restaurant – I agree this is a milder Thai restaurant, but you can request most anything to be spiced hotter if you prefer. Since I can't tolerate hot, I appreciated the choice. I loved the decor of the place, the rich wood was very romantic feeling. If you are new to Thai, or just can't make up your mind about appetizers I recommend the combination plate. It give a chance to try several different things, but it is best shared between 3 or 4 people because of the amount of food. The dinner portions were generous and the service was awesome. I will be back!

Wonderful Food – Order the "pad him ma parn" it is delicious. It consists of roasted cashews, vegetables, your choice of meat, and the restaurants' special sauce and seasoning.

WHAT A ROMANTIC RESTAURANT – My friends told me to try this place out and I've to thanks her for it. This's one of the best restaurant I've been to, good service, friendly and helpful stuff and great food. I love beef satay (so tender),fresh spring roll, pad thai, panang curry and scallop green curry. I'd a wonderful time there and I will definitely go back and recommend this place to all my friends. thanks for doing a great job.

Great Express Lunch – I've been eating lunch at this restaurant 2 time a week since it has been opened many months ago. I love their combo and express lunch which is very fast and inexpensive, but the dish I like most is their pad thai. It's such a great restaurant and I think they've done a good job.
