your vegan experience here greatly depends on your server. sadly, the staff has gone down hill over the years, but as a patron of 9 years, hopefully i can help. michael is the most attentive server i have ever had and he will check into anything there. that being said, yes, ALL curries w the exception of the palatial are NOT vegan. the palatial is exceptionally good with mock duck. the roasted hot pepper sauce CAN be made vegan, and it has been done for me, just ask michael for it, or geoffrey at the bar ;) i have had servers say it cant be done, but they also are the types to not want to take the 5 minutes to ask. Another delicious dish is the garlic chile sauce with tofu-super duper hot and flavorful! it has mounds of fresh tomatoes, zuchinni, tofu, and onions swimming in spicy garlic.
i reccomend eating in the bar, its dimly lit (romantical!) and the dj's are hand-picked with great taste. the drinks kick ass as well :)

the restaurant is ok. PLEASE BE AWARE...ALL CURRIES HAVE SHRIMP PASTE IN THEM. i visited them once before last night, and the waiter said the red curry was vegan.
last night i had the pad thai (minus the egg) after finding out i had eaten shrimp paste a month ago. the food was good. the service was questionable. the waiter was always doing something else, but the water boy was attentive! :)
the waiter took a long time to do anything. i would definitely try and find a better thai eatery-this one is too expensive, gave me wrong info and had slow service. nice atomsphere though.
