At the req of my friend, we ordered from them last night. I will jump on the bandwagon for this place... Friend ordered the Chicken Pad Thai and I ordered the Chicken Basil Leaves with chili (extra onions please). Also ordered a side of steamed rice and wontons. They will do a spicy level between 1-10 over their regular spicyness if you request. I got mine at a level 3. Food was very good. The tofu in the Pad Thai had a slightly sweet flavor to it which I really enjoyed - once I added some chili sauce to it, it was even better! Chicken Basil was phenomenal - just the right amount of heat that slowly invaded your tastebuds. Great sauce as well. Just great. Wontons were much larger and crisper than those I am used to and were very good. They threw in a 'free' order of Wontons as well - when you order $20 worth of food, an order of wontons is free... a fact that I thought should have been relayed to us before it showed up... probably would have ordered an alternate item since we were getting the comped wontons. Regardless, it was definitely a good meal and I look forward to trying other items on the menu. Since we picked it up, we did not order the crispy fish salad, which Oro3030 suggested, but will wait til we eat there.
