    Found hair in our appetizer. Food was overpriced and not very good. They were also out of the desserts.

    Food was outstanding! The restaurant decor is beautiful. Service was a little slow. BUT ...They have to do something about the noise level. Very hard to hold a conversation without shouting across the table. (Too many hard surfaces, nothing to absorb the sound. Other establishments are adding acoustic control panels which do not subtract from the decor.) I will be back and bring friends!

    Appetizers are the best. Delicious and beautiful! Service slow and manager didn’t appear to help our poor waitress as much as she could have. Server did her best but we waited a long time for drinks, waited really long for entrees and our dirty dishes were never removed from the table. Front door was propped open upon arrival and we were dripping with sweat. someone from our group went close the door. The noise level was awful. We could barely hear among our group and would be hesitant to return on a busy night with that level of noise. The sound waves just bounce off the concrete floors and it’s almost ear piercing. Some dishes you could not adjust the spice level and that was disappointing. Entrees was surprisingly huge portions and we actually wish there were two size options available after enjoying all the appetizers. Overall, delicious food and hopefully the staffing and noise issues are resolved.

    Our server seemed to be the bartender and he was awesome. He was patient and pleasant. I’m sure it was a slow night for them as it was a Monday. I was pleasantly surprised that they were open in the day that most restaurants are closed. We had the shrimp dumplings, roti and calamari as our apps. I had the green curry seafood. My mom had the crab fried rice and my dad had the Kung Pao Chicken. It was delicious.

    First time there and was pleasantly surprised. The food and drinks were excellent. Every dish was unique, fresh and very flavorful. Our server, who was also mixing drinks that evening, was great. Quite enjoyable and will be returning.

    Delicious tasty food. Service was extremely friendly, helpful and efficient. We had a table of meat eaters, vegans and vegetarians and the staff went over and beyond to help modify dishes to please all. Festive atmosphere but volume of music made it a little hard to hear each other - but good playlist. Definitely a regular stop for us from now on.

    We went on a double date here. The food was incredible, very tasty and creative. It was much louder than we would’ve liked. Our waitress was good. The bathrooms were nice. I give it a 4/5 overall.

    Service was fantastic. Food was okay, shrimp dumplings were salty, roti was amazing. Thai crepe cake was incredible. Large group of people entered, seated at back of restaurant, noise level became unbearable. My guest and I had to shout at each other to be heard. Thankfully we had just paid our bill.

    Food is delicious. The service was poor and our fried rice came about 30 minutes after our appetizer. We had to flag the waitress down for almost everything including to run our credit card after getting us the bill. I didnt think it was too loud

    The food was absolutely delicious. However, I wish there were more waitresses to cater to the crowd they were somewhat busy and there were not enough waitresses to deal with everyone in a timely fashion. The noise level is extremely loud you have to yell to speak to the person you’re sitting across from or next to.

    The only experience that can be commented to is the service, ambiance and noise level. The service was so slow that we left after being seated for 15 minutes and no indication from servers that they were coming at any point soon.

    We celebrated our son's graduation here. The crispy whole snapper is one of the best things we've ever eaten. We happened to see it being brought to another diner and asked about it. We're so glad we did. The whole meal was enjoyable, but that was the highlight.

    Delicious food and outstanding service. Only issue is the noise level is really high when the restaurant is busy. That aside, I would recommend to others and certainly go back myself.
