Rhong-Tiam (formerly Penang)

Has anyone been to this Thai place that is on the west side of Washington Square Village? It was formerly Penang and even though it claims to be authentic, I never paid much attention to it until I picked up a take out menu. There are some interesting dishes that are not usually offered. They have a version of Chinese watercress salad (ala Sripraphai) and Yen Ta Fo.

Has anybody tried it yet? I can imagine two possibilities. The more likely one is that it's only okay or you have to beg them to make it thai spicy. The unlikely one is that they are authentic and that they will be closed before too long.
