    The red curry here is pretty good, but it wasn't spicy enough for my taste. Benton boxes are a good deal!

    Meh. Got my order wrong. Table was dirty. Waited in line to order then waited for my salad. Water cups were small. I felt like I was inconveniencing the staff.

    Got my hot noodle bowl and then had to wait 15 minutes (we timed it) for my fiancées meal to come out. I don't go out to a restaurant to eat alone. They should plan better!
