We have been here before, but took my sister & brother-in-law there for their first time on Saturday. We had a wonderful meal. Yes, it was a little pricey for Thai, but it was so good that I am ready to go back NOW. Apps and desserts all around, 3 "special" entrees and one "regular" -- $145, excluding tip. It's BYOB, with no corkage fee. Great wait staff and pleasant people at other tables -- we struck up a conversation with one group when we admired their desserts, and with another group talking about entrees.

Hubby had Lemongrass soup, a Thai version of hot & sour. Lots of fresh ingredients. We all shared a combo app & also an order of corn cakes. I really loved the corn cakes, and am thinking about ways to give them a southwestern twist. Hubby had soft shell crabs, BIL had a rack of lamb (excellent & perfectly cooked), Sis had Rolling Stone (butterfly shrimp rolled with crab & served with a panang curry sauce), and I had chicken Mussaman curry. Desserts were 2 orders of coconut ice cream in chocolate shells, a white chocolate & raspberry mousse pyramid & a version of chocolate lava cake -- all served on plates stunningly decorated with raspberry and mango puree.

If you are in the mood for Thai, and live in the area, please give it a try. I am told that they have excellent lunches as well. Don't be fooled by the location; it's in a strip mall, tucked in the corner next to a Genuardi's. Yes, they do take reservations.
