    This is a Thai Restaurant with a French Chef. They served me a modern twist Pad Thai. I have to returned it back and replace it with Sea Bass instead. If you are looking for authentic Thai food, this is not the place to go to.

    Very delicious and satisfying. Service was great but the highlight was the food and cocktails. Spicy is the name of the game here . their green curry was spicy and delicious, and they made it spicier for us. The seafood was cooked perfectly, so it's highly recommended, but the beef dishes are just as good. Overall a terrific experience.

    WOW! What a flawless meal! From the engaging, knowledgeable young man who seated us (in exactly the type seat I requested), to the comfort of the banquette, to the sophisticated, elegant decor, everything was perfection. Our server was a delightful young lady who knew everything about the menu and indulged every request. The octopus salad was one of the best dishes I’ve ever had anywhere- just layers of Thai aromatics with the most tender octopus imaginable. The Thai lemongrass sausage platter and lobster special were also unbelievable. We cannot wait to go back!

    Very good overall. Service was attentive, as it should be, especially since the crowd was very small for this visit. Flavors and aromas were very good. But the $ was high for the experience, as there are many other very good Thai restaurants with noticeably lower prices. I will return but only if convenient.

    Went for the wide variety of vegetarian options on the menu. The menu indicated which dishes can be made Vegetarian but in reality they cannot make many of the dishes vegetarian due to fish sauce and other ingredients. False advertising and generally overpriced.

    Seated right away by pleasant and helpful hosts. Table was a bit close to kitchen entryway but someone has to be there I guess and it was NYE. Appetizers were excellent but tom yum was a bit lacking in both size and zest. Entrees were very good though took a bit of time out of kitchen. Server was great and decor hip but not off-puttingly odd.
