Fresh and delicious - Edit

I came for an early dinner with a couple of friends. I opted for a lighter meal, ordering the mushroom salad and the sticky rice balls. I really enjoyed the mushroom salad - it was fresh and tangy with a healthy dose of lime. The sticky rice balls were good as well, but they were a bit salty and heavy on soy sauce.

They have a nice beer selection and some awesome cocktails. I especially enjoyed the Thai Basil Tom Collins, which I got to steal a sip of from my friend.

Overall, a nice dinner.

Pros: Great cocktails, beers, Fresh food

Warm atmosphere and delicious food - Edit

The mushroom skewers are outrageously good, and the waitstaff we've had (I've been twice) have been knowledgeable about vegan options. Excellent cocktails, and the atmosphere somehow pulls off cozy without being too casual.

Pros: Mushroom skewers

A few options available - Edit

Tried out Boda the other night. The owner is the same who owns Green Elephant (a vegetarian restaurant). Originally, he didn't want anything vegan/veg on the menu, but customers kept asking so he had to modify. There are a number of things already vegan - they're marked vegetarian, but most are safe - mushroom and tofu skewers were our favorite. You can ask your server to have the kitchen modify other things and they're happy to oblige. Service is fantastic! Drinks were good too :)

Pros: Nice vibe, Excellent Service, Open late - serves until 12:30 a.m.

Cons: Less veg options, Smell of non-veg food is very prevalent

Worth going to if you like the Green Elephant - Edit

This place is owned by the guys who own the Green Elephant, and thus it is pretty easy to make *some* of the dishes vegan. Many of the dishes rely n meat, and definitely ask about the sauces since they can do a mushroom-based sauce instead.
