The waiters wear skirts at this sprightly Thai spot, which modestly bills itself as a "noodle lounge." Prices are below par, with lunch an especially good deal. Particularly recommended are the vegetarian rolls wrapped in floppy tofu skin, the masaman beef stew chunky with meat and potatoes, and a special of two fried soft-shell crabs served with a tartly dressed salad. The menu also offers an interesting assortment of complete dinners based on the Japanese bento-box model. Perversely, the noodle dish from which the restaurant takes its name is a sticky-sweet mess.
