oh dear lord i love this place! its one of the few thai places i know of that not only has a vegan menu, but they make their own curry paste so that it's vegan friendly as well! my go-to meal is mock duck panang curry, tofu satay, and banana coconut rice for dessert. the portions for curry's seem skimpy compared to other thai joints, but add a noodle dish and you and your main squeeze will have enough to share with leftovers for lunch.

edit: i'm now a gluten free vegan, and thankfully a good portion of the vegan menu can be made gluten free without sacrificing flavor! the staff is on point with knowing what will, and what won't translate well in the vegan flavor department.
