We have gone to Green Pea Pod Restaurant several times for lunch. The food is quite good and they will customize the spices to your desires. Service can be slow when busy at lunch but the servers seem attentive as much as possible. The food is custom prepared and they are happy to make substitutions. Prices are on the high side for lunch but not outrageous. The dining area is one large room which can be noisy and not appropriate for a intimate dinner or quiet date. Everything considered, there are no other Thai restaurants nearby and this food is of good quality which makes it an acceptable choice..
I first visited in early 2008 and have been a regular since the first time. I have regular massage therapy sessions and an occasional reflexology treatment. I have never felt better treated for my sore back and neck pains. This is not as fancy as some spas but the quality of their work is superb. I have used three different massage therapists here and enjoy them all with their different styles. They start on time and don't allow you to wait more than a few minutes before you are in a massage room. They are sometimes busy and sometimes hard to get a same day reservation, so I always call a day or two ahead. Not only would I highly recommend them, I use them for many of my gift certificates for friends.
Doyles is excellent. They have just completed a total renovation and the building is nice and fresh. Foods is delicious and the beer is cold. Parking behind building is helpful especially when Richmond is busy on weekends. We are looking to our next visit.
Sorry. Past Tense really is "past tense" They are now closed and their building is empty. I did receive a mailing from them several years ago which said that all the therapists were leaving and the owner retiring.
The best massage therapy that have ever had. On my first visit, I went in with a sore back and was impressed with their listening skills, services and the quality of their massage. The massage therapist listened to all that I had to tell him and was very patient with my therapy. When I left, my soreness was gone. I have since become a regular visitor here and sent many of my friends. If the quality of customer service continues as it has, I will be returning for a long time. One caveat is that you should make your appointment days ahead if you want a certain time or massage therapist. They have 4 or 5 massage therapists but they still can be extremely busy and same day appointments are harder to have.
This is a great massage. On my first visit, I went there with a sore back and was impressed with their ambiance, services and the quality of their massage therapist. Definitely, I will be returning for many more visits.
