Advice: tell the server what level of spice you would like when placing your order, dishes are spicy here.
All my friends were suggesting that I try Maenam, so after months since their opening, I finally went for lunch and I what I discovered was some very friendly waitresses who enjoyed servicing their customers. The menu looked intriguing and there were many dishes that appealed to me, I made a decision and ordered the Mussaman Chicken ($12) bamboo, grachai, holy basil, thai basil, and rice. This dish was filling but too spicy for my taste, so when contemplating dessert and they do have a great menu for dessert, just three choices but each looked great. I settled on the Dark Chocolate pot de crème ($6) sea salt, cocoa nib tuile, tamarind semifreddo and this dessert was delish and my tastebuds were back. They have a very well thought out and extensive wine list too. The room is cool with ceiling fans, wooden tables and décor, the bar is ideal for eating when on your own or with a friend.
