Wow, just stumbled upon Merlion, have eaten there twice and LOVE it! So rare to find an excellent restaurant in the Clear Lake/Bay Area. It's not a chain (thank goodness!), it's got a wonderful eclectic atmosphere (in a bungalow across from the water and not in the Kemah boardwalk noise-filled district), superior Thai food cooked to order, wine that can be tasted before buying, very friendly and knowledgable waitstaff, parking lot and street parking, a jazz duo the recent Saturday evening I was there. I can't say enough positive things about this restaurant - I will be wearing it out for years to come! If you have an issue, idea, complaint, request - the staff is ready to accommodate you. First class service and food - what more do you need to hear?! Do make a reservation if you want to make sure you'll get a table...
Pros: Food, atmosphere, location, waitstaff
Cons: None for me
