Shiny stainless steel and a striking front window invite you to be part of the buzz at this bright, bustling place. The menu is lengthy, covering many Thai classics, from papaya salad to lemongrass chicken; the presentation is pretty and the flavors freshly assertive. Try the crispy bananas with berry sauce. Vegetarians are well fed here.
