You can't go wrong ordering shrimp: Start with the provocatively named naked shrimp, barely cooked and tossed with lemongrass and green onion in a sharp lemon dressing, then proceed to an entrée of shrimp with ground pepper and garlic-six jumbos deep-fried with a coating that's mainly garlic. Although the Thai food reaches a consistently high level, crowded tables and frantic service discourage frequent visits. The weekday lunch specials are a particularly good deal.
