This simple, unassuming space has gone through a lot of ups and downs over the years, but today it makes a pad thai so good that the whole place shines. The menu is very traditional, and with room for no more than twenty or so customers, the kitchen is able to carefully craft each dish. But the small space can also result in long waits for food and parking.
