Description

Complex Thai flavors pop and fresh ingredients shine at this welcoming and inexpensive haven. Despite a few letdowns, such as overcooked basil beef, there’s a lot to enjoy, beginning with fried stuffed prawns, Thai crêpes, and classic tom kha soup. Vegetable karee (yellow) curry and spinach noodles in a sauce of tamarind and ground chilies topped with shrimp and crabmeat are entrée standouts. Exotic custards round out a menu also offering Thai beers and inexpensive wines.
