Reliable, inexpensive Thai cuisine in a modest, pleasant environment. A statue of a praying Thai lady greets you upon entry, and there are the usual Thai knickknacks on the walls, along with portraits of the Thai king and queen. The menu offers a wide selection of Thai eats, including standards such as laab, Panang curry, satay, pad Thai, and pad see-ew. Two people can dine here 'til bursting for under $40, including a beer or two. The kitchen can prepare your order from mild to hot, and the service is courteous in the extreme.
