- Their red curry is excellent with the perfect amount of spice. They only use fresh crisp vegetables in all of their dishes. And their vietnamese [sic] fried spring rolls are to die for. – adam, Urbanspoon
- Surprisingly authentic and amazingly delicious. I have to say, this place really exceeded our expectations. – Chris, Urbanspoon

Fluffy mounds of jasmine rice soak up the bright red and yellow sauces of thai curry dishes, and vietnamese pho beef noodle soup steams nearby. In the vegetarian section of the menu, fulfilling stir-fry options such as Buddha Delight—fresh veggies with tofu, soy chicken, or soy beef ($10.99)—bounce off the page with the verve of a child who's eaten too many pixy stix.
