Food: 4

I know I should judge a book by its cover, but it's just human nature to do so. When I first saw this upscale looking Thai restaurant, I was thinking this place certainly doesn't look authentic. I guess in my mind authentic equals family style type restaurant. I must say I am pleasantly surprised that the food is actually quite good.

- modern and elegant decor
- bright and spacious

Pad Grapau  with Fish - $14
- surprised this came with rice, thus definitely shrunk the portion of actual fish
- well infused
Chicken Red Curry - $14
- creamy and flavorful
- love how the sweet coconut milk balance out the spiciness
- tender chicken
- a moderate portion
Pad Thai - $13
- snappy prawns
- seems to be tamarind base
- generous portion
Basil Fried Rice- $12
- did not skimp out on the basil, which provided great flavor
- moist fried rice that are not clump together
Mango with Sticky Rice - $7
- perfect creamy sticky rice with lovely coconut flavor and fragrance
- ripen sweet mango

The food here was solid, although it's slightly pricier. I guess the decor does play a factor since it appears to be "nicer" than others. Also they do put some effort into execution with plating. I guess this would be a good place to bring a date or business client.
