Owners are exceptionally nice and dining here is a real treat. I hope the word gets out and that this place does well enough. —RochesterGuy

When the server saw us drooling over the ice cream, he politely told us, "No ice cream yet." But then he brought us out complimentary spring rolls! Brilliant, brilliant, brilliant. Such a warm, inviting, cozy space. And the food was great. —MarcVera

We tried the soup of the day (coconut soup), Pad Thai, Chicken Basil, Pad Prik Khing and a dish with wide noodles (possibly Drunken Master Noodles). The coconut soup set a hopeful note - full of chilli, lemongrass and kaffir lime flavours. It was quite delicious. However, it went downhill from there. The Pad Thai tasted like it was made with ketchup - it lacked the sour-spicy-sweet combination that defines a good Pad Thai. Everything else tasted too sweet (and our dishes were requested "extra spicy"). The chicken basil did have a pleasant basil flavour but after a few bites, the sweetness was all I could taste. I believe it is common to add a tiny bit of sugar to round out most stir fries but whoever made ours put a few tablespoons in there. But the coconut soup was so is this possible?! I will be back to give it one more shot. I strongly recommend calling ahead to check their hours as they are weather dependent. —OneLove
