    The lan larb salad is spicy but not a scorching. The curries are out of this world and goes well with the sticky rice and roti.

    Awesome Thai food for a little more money. The spicy duck salad really is spicy! Each curry is so unique and flavorful. -1 for being out of 4 menu items at 8:45 on a quiet Monday.

    Duck red curry was surprisingly lean and served with fantastic kind of roti bread. Ice creams are super cheap and delicious. Toasted almond is really good. Mango sorbet is sweet and rich

    Two rotis come in one order. They are also thicker and crispier than your regular roti; fun to eat with a great texture.

    Laab is slightly spicy, by South East Asian standards, so don't be intimidated. Follow it up with the goat massaman and you're set.
