I went here a long time ago, so my memory is a little fuzzy... I tried the spicy noodles and the pad thai, and they were both very good. Loved the texture of the tofu. The atmosphere was lively, and the service (we had a huge group) was great. It's nice to have options in Old Town! Adding another vegan menu item or two and labeling them would easily give this place five stars.
I went here with a group of friends last week and we all really enjoyed our food. I liked that the vegetarian options (which I believe were all vegan) were varied, so it wasn't just variations on the same rice or noodle dish. I opted for the tofu with vegetables since it seemed that most of the other veg dishes were very tofu and noodle/rice heavy, without many veggies. My dish was very good and it had a good assortment of veggies but I would have liked more flavor/spice to it.
I tried my friend's drunken noodles and they were fantastic. I am a huge fan of the wide rice noodles used in this dish so I will definitely order it next time I'm in town. The service was friendly and very quick, so quick, that it almost made me nervous. :)
