Candlelight casts pulpy shadows on the light blue-hued walls of this BYOB eatery, where servers help patrons hone their decision-making skills by dropping off menus littered with traditional Thai dishes and a few unexpected tweaks. Bamboo shoots, coconut milk, and pickled cabbage accessorize many authentic platters, which include salads, curries, and rice dishes. The vapors of thai hot teas mingle with the rising steam of noodle dishes seven days a week, and brunch tops tables Thursday–Saturday. When the weather permits, the bistro opens its patio area, with overhanging trees and umbrellas to protect patrons from sunlight and a wooden perimeter fence to guard against the twirling forks of noodle thieves.
