We were seated right at the counter by the chef. Although some reviewers thought it was unsanitary I thought it was almost nicer because the food just tasted extra hot and fresh.  The menu is written on a wooden paddle with no prices so I had no idea how much I was even paying though til the end. I got the tofu pad thai and thai milk tea. I think I can safely say this is probably the best pad thai I've had in Washington so far! The sauce was perfect balance between sweet and salty. I loved  the dryness of the noodle. A lot of places drench their noodles in peanut sauce and it all agglutinates together. This was definitely not a problem here, the noodles stayed separate but was still full of flavor. My pet peeve is when thai restaurants pile a bunch of dry bean sprouts on top as your only source of veggie in the dish. Fortunately, I did not have this problem and I got a bunch of tasty veggies such as broccoli and napa cabbage instead. Even thinking about the dish now makes me hungry. Love love this place and wish I could come up here more. I would not recommend coming with a large party or if you're claustrophobic. Environment definitely reminds me of Asia. <p>I think this is literally as hole in the wall as you can get, the seating area is the size of a narrow living room.
