They also have a Thai Cafe, where you can try delicious Thai dishes - including soups, curries, fried (or not fried) rice plates. They grow their own herbs and spices that they use in their dishes, keeping things fresh and delicious. All dishes are made fresh daily by the owner and his son.

"The Thai Cafe is closed for the month of June for a family vacation - but will reopen after we from their trip. We're also in the process of updating their website for ease of use" said owners Som & Joe of SJ's International.
