Had dinner a week ago and lunch today at this place, and both meals were really very good. For starters at dinner, we found the Tod Mun to be very tasty. We ordered a bunch of the tasting plates, of which the best was the Sous Vide Beef Tongue and the Thai Red Snapper. They also had a Salmon cake special that was delicious.

The portions of the tasting plates are more than sufficient for two to share comfortably, and depending on the appetite and how many starters, 2 or 3 of the tasting plates would be enough for dinner for two people.

For lunch starters, we had curry Pork Belly Bun, which is a slider with sous vide pork belly. Rich, and very tasty. There are two to each order, and 1 is enough for a person for an appetizer, I think. The Basil Eggplant, to which we added chicken, was really excellent. The eggplant was fantastic, and it will be a fine dish without the meat, if you so want. We also had the Pork Garlic Peppercorn and the Panang Curry; both were really good, but the eggplant dish surpassed them.

The dishes in this place are more like what you get at Uchi and Uchiko than at a traditional Thai place. They provide chopsticks, which is, of course, not traditional Thai, but works really well here because of the nature of the dishes. The care that goes into each dish is pretty evident; what was fried was fried just right without dripping excess oil; the octopus in one dish was just soft and perfect.
