    Unimaginative, unauthentic, ummemorable, bland.
    Not inedible but SO many more choices.

      We picked up some pad-thai to go and it was OK, nothing special. After eating we thought that this place needs some hand holding; so if you want something a certain way, like extra spicy, garlicky, etc. you need to be clear. While waiting, I do remember the staff being especially nice, offering me a beverage, a seat and updating me as to when my food will be ready to go. I found their attentiveness atypical for the neighborhood and because of that will probably try them again.

        I'll agree. Thge people were very very nice. I feel bad that the food is so totally generic.
