Favorite Thai Place

Posted on 07 / 19 / 2014

This place is a 5 minute walk from where I work, so I've been there many times. I usually get carry-out though. I almost always order the tofu red curry because it's my favorite but I've had a few other dishes. I love their fresh, not fried, spring rolls, but the fried ones are good too.
The service is friendly and fast. They messed up my order one time, but they were nice about it.
The restaurant is okay. It could use some work, but it's pleasant enough to eat there.

Pros: Great food!, Fast!, Curteous
Cons: restaurant a little dingy

Great Thai Food

Posted on 08 / 23 / 2012

I ordered a coke, spring rolls and the red curry tofu. It came out pretty quickly. Both were delicious and my total came to $16.37. I don't think that's bad for downtown Norfolk. It's really close to my office so I can walk there.
I love the table art. The place is clean. The waitstaff is nice. They have a vegetarian menu and some items are vegan. You can ask for them to omit the eggs in some dishes. According to the other review, you should always ask if the dish you want has any fish/sea food products in it. I believe curry is just coconut milk and spices. If anyone finds out differently, please comment.
I recommend this place to anyone in the downtown area looking for a good vegetarian meal at a descent price.

Pros: Yummy, Clean, Friendly
Cons: Some sauces contain fish

Oyster sauce in master sauce

Posted on 08 / 09 / 2012

They have a vegetarian section on their menu, but their food is not vegetarian because the master sauce contains oyster sauce. I always ask about fish sauce at asian restaurants and the waiter was very nice and honest and honest about ingredients. The chef mixed up a fresh batch of master sauce without oyster sauce just for our party. Good food and the prices are about $9-$13 a plate. The atmosphere is nice, but there is a TV near the dining area.

In short, the menu claims some dishes are vegetarian but they are not. However the staff is more than happy to make dishes actually vegetarian upon request.

Pros: good food, friendly staff
Cons: veggie food not vegetarian
