They were amazing til they werent. The rice started getting really gummy. The portions very tremendously.(you notice when you eat there often) I love the flavor of the dishes and the sushi is bomb! Great atmosphere for sushi & a drink. Parking is very limited as the takeout section. The location is definitely dine in, limited out door seating.
I went kind of plain and got chicken fried rice. I have never had Thai food before but I honestly really enjoyed it. Their menu mentions to go down a spice level, definitely do that!! The rice was cooked to perfection and it comes with a little bowl of cilantro lime sauce on the side, and it mixes perfectly with the bowl's seasoning. I will say the chicken itself was a little dry, but other than that I enjoyed it. If you like Thai food I would definitely go here!
The food : My wife and I ate the Kao Soy Chicken. We had no complaints. The curry was wonderful ! Its clear this restaurant knows how to make a good curry dish so we will definitely seek out this location in the future. Music : one of my biggest issues with the location was the music. It was non stop hip hop with cursing. Its not my taste and it felt out of place. For the reason if I return it will be to order out , not to dine in. Customer service : our waitress was very attentive and kind. Overall aside from the music and the cooking crew taking their garbage outside through the main dining area we loved the experience.
Review on takeout order of 1. Gyoza 2. Basil chicken Honestly this place is great for a casual neighborhood Thai spot. My basil chicken was a little too salty but I feel like I can ask for it less salty next time. The flavors are certainly there. And dont overlook the rice. I have a huge appreciation for well cooked rice and their white rice slaps.
Waitresses were superb and diligent in waiting my table, had everything we needed in a timely manner, food was mad delicious. I got the basil fried rice sub/chk to shrimp and I got the eel sushi which is soooo good, I thought it tasted more like salmon but my girlfriend says it tasted like a mix of squid and salmon, I say it tasted like salmon more so for a taste reference . But either way it tasted great Will be going back next weekend !!
