Overview: Cozy Thai BYOB gem serving excellent steaks and Thai cuisine.
Food: Although there are many traditional Thai dishes on the menu, two menu items steal the show: Filet Mignon and the red curry sauce. First off, you can order the filet several ways: red wine reduction, green peppercorn sauce, and of course with the red curry sauce. Although they are all excellent, the red curry filet is a must have dish — a wonderfully prepared steak in one of the best Thai curry sauces you will ever find. Save some bread from before the meal — you will need it to mop up the excess sauce. By the way, the crispy duck also comes with red curry sauce and is excellent. The food can falter when the restaurant gets extremely busy — even my treasured curry sauce once came out a bit powdery.
Bread: with butter. Save some for later. Trust me.
Ambiance: Not sure about the new location!
Service: The hosts/owners mean well, but can come off as gruff, especially when they are busy. For some this is enough to stay away — for others, this is just a quirky part of their neighborhood spot.
Value: BYOB, great food = great value.
