Not a yuppie Thai place and not quite a mom and pop, but rather imagine a Thai restaurant created for, among others, non-Thai Asians. This reminds me of the kind of Thai restaurant you might find in Seoul. Most dishes are above average, though I cannot say extraordinary.
The Mieng Kham is “A traditional Thai snack…green leaves filled w/roasted peanuts, pieces of limes. Shallot, ginger, roasted coconut ship and homemade sauce.” It is one of the best Thai dishes in this whole area and it is reason enough to visit this restaurant. Overall this place is definitely good, but if it took more chances it could be better yet.
