Fodor's Review

As the shingle above the tiny storefront amid lower State Street's club scene states, the food here is "reminiscent of things Thai." That might drive away diners seeking absolute authenticity, but every day a trendy flock of fans packs the room for delectable dishes made from fresh local ingredients. Reserve a table or be prepared for a wait.
