Tom Ka Gai and Chicken Broccoli were super sweet - no the usual Thai mix of spicy, sweet and sour. The clear broth tasted like water (no flavor whatsoever). Vegetable Dumplings had a funny flavor (perhaps too much sweet basil). Yuck.
Yes, it's all true....
The food is fresh, delicious, and reasonably priced. Also, the portions are sensibly sized. And as for the issue of service, it is courteous, delightful, and efficient. The kind of place that makes you feel welcomed! I've visited this restaurant three times so far, and I haven't been disappointed yet. I intend to return soon! (10/2009)
Vibrant flavor, crisp and fresh !!!.
I was in the area for a meeting and stumbled onto 7th Ave, and found an oasis of restaurants that I never new about. Most of the places were packed and I only had a little bit of time to eat before my meeting
The contrast of the mosaic tiling merged with their very sharp sign, gave me a good feeling that food would be tasty, and I was right. I've ate at quite a few thai restaurants and I feel that they always copy each other, but this place has such a different approach. They don't overcook the vegetables like most places do and, the broocli was still crunchy with plenty of flavor. actually all the vegetables were very fresh, I was so supprised.
I orderd the Kao Soy, which is crispy egg noodle with curry and vegetables, and (they didn't roll their eyes) when I asked them to subsitute the meat for soymeat... big plus in book.
I'm happy to add this place to my (on the go list) when I'm on that side of town again.
I am Thai and this is the only place I eat Thai food now. It very authentic. The spice is perfect. I order the tom yum kung shrimp soup which tastes like I eat at home. Pad see ew noodle is delicious. Oh the curry puff is tastey. It is the best.
