With a name like OSHA, you might think of the government agency. But this OSHA is a hip, open late thai noodle cafe. Given the young crowd, you'd expect the food to be orphaned to the ambience and hip customers. Surprise - the food is quite good and well priced.

Teo chew wonton noodles soup was well flavored with shrimp, fish balls, fish cake and long, long noodles. Better than most soups.

Pad thai noodles were fried so that each noodle was coated with robust flavorings. Appropriate sweet / savory balance. Unfortunately, the chicken seemed to have been presliced and frozen, rather than freshly cut.

Osha spicy pan fried noodles were a delightful combination of egg noodles, duck, tomato, mushrooms, onions, basil and fresh chili. We all loved the basil that makes this different from a Chinese dish.

Larb, a salad of chicken, lime juice, chili, red and green onions, was disappointing. Bland.

Papaya salad with salty crab. The crab had no meat. We weren't sure if the crab was only for flavoring, or this crab had been on the Pritikin diet. Pass.

Seems like if you know what to order, you'll be pleased. Note that parking is tough in this neighborhood. The garage on the same block was full. Take public transportation or a cab.
