We are the taste that Dallas has been looking for, serving New Bangkok style cuisine combined with an Asian fused menu since 2005 receiving numerous national and local awards for food quality excellence.
We stand by our fresh ingredients and our best in class service.
Our locations are chic but comfortable – we believe in eccentric clean and modern environments and try and reflect that not only in our locations but in our food.
Stop by and let your palate travel to heaven with our Pad Thai offerings, Sea Bass, or our lighter fare, Beef Thai Salad.
We offer a full service bar, and feature a number of signature drinks, including organic wines and martinis.
