I haven’t eaten here in a few months because I just was never impressed with the food and menu selections. I went back today and was surprised to see a new menu! Tofu is not clearly listed as an option (I think I only saw it as available to add to the Tom kah soup), but I was able to easily add it to my hibachi dish. I’m sure they would allow you to add it to any dish. It was very good.

Pros: Good food, Able to make most dishes just veggie or add tofu

Cons: Dark lighting, Can be cramped and crowded

Limited options for vegans

We stopped off here for a quick lunch on our way south. It's one of the only places around with any vegan options, but there weren't still weren't many here. The waitress said I couldn't have the satay with tofu because there was meat already in the sauce (um?). They had tofu and were happy to keep fish sauce out of the curries though. We had a green curry and a massaman curry. The latter only had potato, tofu and carrot in it - not even the onion or peanuts I'd come to expect from other places. It had a nice flavour though and quite a spice kick. Worth a stop when there isn't much else in the area.

Pros: Will accommodate vegans, Good flavours

Cons: Limited options , Vegan options not clearly marked

Be cautious. The chef told me the fish/oyster sauce is already in the curries. Can't be taken out.
