    There's a bar downstairs but it's a great stop for a delicious lunch. The pad thai and fried rice are very well done. I also enjoy the ginger fried chicken, extremely moist. Good Japanese rice too!

    Always lovely. Almond milk macha tea a tad but too sweet but nice. The Tom Ga coconut milk soup w shiitake and tofu is perfect warming and spicy for these cold days when you feel the flu luring.

    The ginger fried chicken and red curry with shrimps i had, they were ok but nothing special. It is a quaint place for coffee, but would go somewhere else if I want a good Thai food.

    The lunch set is a rare find for the area-- edamame, dumplings, and a generous portion of any noodle dish for ~$10.

    The seasonal salads are perfect for a summer evening (delicious sweet miso dressings). Unpleasantly slow service, but if you're forgiving you'll enjoy simple, top notch food.
