We shop at various produce and specialty markets daily in order to serve you the freshest and highest quality ingredients. Your meals are cooked in olive and canola oils, and the only flavor enhancers we add are love and creativity. Our menu was inspired by the favorites of the original Thai cuisine in Thailand. Come, be our guests and enjoy the experience of contemporary Thai dining.
