My friend and I thought this place was pretty decent. I ate here a while back, but we had a green curry with tofu and a stir-fry dish with basil and tofu. Both were acceptable, if not super-memorable in any way.

The service was friendly and fairly prompt, though the place wasn't crowded, so I guess that's the way it should be.

This is one of the few Thai restaurants in Chinatown, so if you're looking for a change of pace from Chinese food, this should be one of your alternatives.

This restaurant is very pretty and they have a large and well-marked vegetarian section. However, I wasn't very impressed with the food. The flavors were somewhat bland and the "spicy" entrees weren't very spicy. I tried the ping pik tofu, which was about two packs worth of tofu, cut up and fried with some frozen green beans. There was WAY too much tofu in the dish and the sauce was bland.

I tried my friend's eggplant, which was very good, and another friend's red curry, which had a good flavor but was a very small portion. We also tried the veggie dumpling appetizer (odd flavor) and the mango salad, which was good but contained very little mango. Finally, we had the sticky rice w/ peanut sauce, and while the sticky rice was fine, the peanut sauce was somewhat bland.
