Walking into this establishment I immediately assumed it would be expensive. Dim lighting, nice upholstered seating and a modern Thai look. It is pretty dark and well air conditioned so I think the atmosphere would appeal much more in the evening then during the day. Very nicely laid out and plenty of seating.
The server was extremely attentive and always kept our water glasses full. He answered my concerns of making sure the items I ordered were vegetarian (making sure to mention there was egg in the soup which I am fine with, but pleased he asked). Overall they had good service and the food came out quick. Was not really the type of service we you feel like you develop a little friendship with your server, but again a solid experience.
This restaurant offers great lunch specials all for a reasonable price, so I would highly recommend going during the week at lunchtime. The lunch specials come with a Hot & Sour Soup (vegetarian) and a Vegetable Spring Roll as well. The soup was excellent and was wonderfully spicy. It contained tofu, mushrooms, egg and a vegetable that was cut julienne style. The spring roll was larger than the typical one you get on the side of a meal and very tasty (standard though). My main dish of Vegetable Curry with Rice was very flavourful and had lots of different vegetables in it including baby bok choy, carrots, broccoli, cauliflower, baby corn and green beans. The red curry sauce made with coconut milk was well balanced and had great heat to it and rice was cooked beautifully (not mushy or hard).
Very much so! There was plenty of options for me to chose from on the lunch special list and the restaurant made a point to mention in their main menu that dishes could be accommodated for vegetarian diets. Very happy with the abundance of options and I am sure it could be vegan friendly as well!
As mentioned above, I originally thought walking in that this would be an expensive meal. After perusing through the lunch special menu, I quickly discovered that the prices at this place were more than reasonable given the atmosphere and quality. My lunch special was only $13.95 and I thought it was definitely worth the price!
