When you walk in, you'll notice a modern feel with exposed piping, brick walls, wooden tables, and an open kitchen on the right. More often than not, you'll also see the chef and owner Chef Hong making her magic in the kitchen as you walk by towards the dining room.

|I love an open kitchen!|
I've been to Ngam several times now, as well as ordered take-out even more times. My definite favorites have been:
|Peek Gai Tod” Brother Chai’s Chicken Wings: amazing marinade with just a touch of the chili sauce glaze. Served on a piece of wood so it was cool to look at as well!|
|Papaya Noodle Pad Thai - Ngam's pad thai is delicious as is, but this dish is even more awesome and guilt-free by substituting out the noodles with shredded papaya. All the flavor, none of the carbs!!! This is such a treat!|
|Lamb “Massaman” Roti Potpie: Instead of pastry puff, Chef Hong used a roti! Clever!|
|Green Curry: All the curries are freshly made in house! You can add your protein of choice (I couldn't resist the shrimp) and it all comes out hot and currylicious. Even better if you sub out your white rice for the coconut rice mmm....|
Ngam has such a great energy inside and is perfect for a quick weeknight dinner, fun weekend dinner, girls dinner, date night, anything! They also have a large wooden table in the middle of the restaurant to accommodate a large party. Best of all, they take reservations! If you're looking for a great new Thai restaurant to try, definitely consider giving Ngam a go!
