The evening crowd keeps this intimate location quite crowded. A couple of "locals" indicated that they came about twice a week and it was full all the time. A great accidental find.
Favorite Dish Most of us were in only for appittizers, but all tried were excellent, especially the "dim sum" which even served at dinner was excellent. A variety of appetizers made the rounds and even if you didn't know what you were eating (I'm not much of a Sushi/Oriental Cuisine gormet) it tasted great.
The best way to describe The Queens Mother Cafe is a "pub". However, this restaurant is not an average pub. It is reminiscent of an old English style pub, but not your average menu or overall atmosphere. Staff is extremely friendly and offer a great deal of advice when you are in limbo as to what to order. Offers a large selection of Thai cuisine, tasty chicken dishes and has a fairly large vegetarian menu. Also a great place to just sit and have a great conversation over a glass of wine.
Favorite Dish Bar none, they have the best Pad Thai in the city, you have to give this a try (very reasonable for $10). They have a great pan seared Chicken dish and excellent daily specials. Great starters include sticky rice and peanut sauce, edaname and clams in a white wine sauce. Dinner for four should run you about $100 with a few drinks.
