Nipa Hot is an excellent and cheap choice for those who love Thai food. I have had only one dish that I would not recommend, the Shrimp & Lime soup (they overdo it on the lime). Everything esle is excellent. The ambiance is very hole-in-the-wall. So if you are looking for a romantic or classy place, this is not it. Sometimes it can be hard to get refills on your drinks.
Pros: Inexpensive, Good Food, Never Crowded
Cons: Slow Service, Bad Parking, Bad Ambiance
