Thai Cuisine is designed to stimulate and excite the five taste senses:  sweet, sour, hot, salty and neutral. Incorporating the culinary traditions of its Chinese forebears and Indian neighbors, its unique flavors depend on certain ingredients native to Southeast Asia. Lemon Grass, Galangar, Coriander Leaf & Root, Fresh Leaf of the Kaffir Lime, Ginger and Hot Chili make Thai dining a unique experience. We have made a special effort to keep mono sodium glutamate out of the kitchen. We use fresh lime juice and fish sauce to bring out the natural flavor.


Based on rice, the typical main meal includes soup, curry, stir-fried dishes and vegetables. Tastes within a dish are carefully blended to stimulate each of the five sensations. For light dining, we recommend one of our noodle dishes.

We are also specialists in vegetarian dishes Thai style.
