anyone tried Brown Sugar's Thai menu?

We usually go to Dokbua for our Thai fix, but during our dinner last week, we noticed that prices have gone up and portion gone smaller. We've ordered at Brown Sugar before (their country pad thai and yam woon sen are yet to be beat), but havent made it a habit due to higher price, difficulty finding parking, and what we thought was an Americanized menu.

Was just at Brown Sugar for steamed chicken rice (kow mun gai, similar to hainanese chicken rice, but with tangy garlic/chili sauce on the side) lunch today. I asked if they had a Thai menu, and indeed they did, but available only for dinner.

The Thai menu is inserted at the back of the menu book, and was of different colored paper. Another clue that you're looking at the Thai menu is that it has both Thai and English names, while the the American menu in the front has only English names.
The Thai menu was categorized into chef's specials, appetizers, over rice, noodles, etc. It was quite extensive, and sounded yummy. The catfish salad w/ mango and lime dressing, the spicy vegetable dip (nam prik ong), stewed pork shoulder sounded very2 delicious. I recognized some items (e.g pork legs, miang kum, etc) were also carried by Dokbua, but there were plenty others that were new.

So, I'm just wondering if anybody's tried ordering off this menu? Any luck?

Thanks in advance.
