    The Pad Thai is one of their specialties. It is outstanding! This is the Pad Thai with shrimp in fire sauce!

    Heath K. Has a pretty bad attitude the Baileys he put in my coffee curdles he tried to convince me it was because of the whisky. Even though I've had this drink at 1000 other bars.

    For a place that welcomes gays that have no place to go on holidays... They are sure to welcome the money of bachelorette parties when we can't be married.
