Foursquare Tips

  • Papaya salad is fresh and crisp. . Scallop and noodles are awesome. Garlic chicken is moist and flavorful.
  • The patio is an extension of both the restaurant (50 seats) and the lounge (15 seats). In recognition of that fact, the restaurant's serving boozy snow cones in flavors like gin with ginger and lime.
  • Riesling your heart out.
  • Great service, really enjoyed the escargot, good selection of cocktails
  • Ask for Danielle or Mike. Not just Bartenders but Mixologists!
  • green papaya salad
  • The mixologist Danielle knows her stuff!
  • The chicken is amazing. If you like things on fire (and who doesn't??), you must order the scallop. Kona Kampachi was also outstanding.
  • Papaya salad and mussels in curry sauce are good appetizers
  • "The green papaya salad with handmade beef jerky is delicious. I rarely skip it, but everything on the menu is highly flavorful." Chef Dana Cree
  • Pepper-crusted, barely seared tuna arrives in thick chunks alongside twice-roasted beets glazed with Thai chili and lemon grass, under a cloud of foamed coconut milk, lime and maple syrup.
  • Everything was superb
  • Salty, fatty, spicy and heavy with aromatics; there is a lot to love here. The fried squid is redolent of kaffir lime and mint with prickles of mouth-numbing sansho.
  • Skip this place. Food was meh. I think we just got a bad server last night, but he was downright awful. Ordered $48 aged ribeye and it missed the mark big time. Will not go back.
  • Their papaya salad is a must order.
  • Green Venetian plaster on the wall looks Gorgeous
  • Inventive sushi. On the very high end for price
  • A small-bites menu bridges the gap between lunch and dinner service, so you can always find something to nibble on here
  • The very pretty sidewalk adjacent to this Vietnamese-inspired restaurant includes a 15-seat lounge and a series of white-umbrella-topped tables strung with lights.
  • Coconut broth with seafood and side of white rice. So delicious!
