This dining establishment is conveniently located just a fourth of a mile away from the Gulch. While this Thai establishment is not technically in the Gulch, it is still considered a part of Gulch because it is within walking distance of it.

There is, however, plenty of parking space around this dining establishment which is not like some of the other establishments in the downtown area. When you walk inside this establishment you will notice it has a very upscale environment. The decor of the restaurant is warm and inviting.
