Has anyone else tried this place? On a recommendation, we did for the first time last weekend and it was wonderful. They serve French and Thai food, but we were warned to avoid the French and stick with the Thai...excellent recommendation. I admit I got a little nervous when I also saw osso bucco on the menu...nothing French or Thai about THAT!!

But the Thai was fresh, creative, and beautifully presented. The chicken satay, spring rolls, and steamed vegetable dumplings were fabulous, as was the evening's special of whole red snapper in tamarind sauce. The Thai beef salad with lime dressing was a standout. Dessert was a delicate Thai pumpkin custard served with sticky rice topped with mango. The homemade coconut ice cream was excellent as well.

Prices are moderate. BYO.
