    You can call it cozy or tight quarters. If it's the latter, don't let it scare you away- take out is still a must if you won't brave the crowd. Pad See Ew and chicken paradise are our favs!

    7 is a pretty spicy level. Pad Thai and Pineapple Curry are good. BYOB.

    The food is great. Give everything on the menu a try. I requested a none vegan meal be made vegan & my request was granted. The service is ok. There is definitely room for improvement.

    Although we made a reservation we had to wait almost an hour to get a table. The food is delicious and tasteful. They have a scale from 1-10 for the spicyness - enjoy it :)

    Chicken with cashew was delicious! Had it 7/10 on the spicy scale; it was perfect for my sinuses! They are great at making sure your water is filled at all times, too!

    If you plan on eating outside, make sure it is after 7:30pm. The buses are less frequent. The service is great and the food wonderful.

    Cashew with shrimp and beef keeps me coming back. Try the mango with glutinous rice for dessert.
