It is supposed to be a Thai noodle bar (curry, spring rolls, Tsatziki, etc.), but you have more options than that, like pesto (a very Italian flavor with a touch of the house), salmon pizzas, chicken burgers, arracheras (cut of beef cooked Mexican style), Caesar salads, and sandwiches.
The portions are huge and tasty. You can order a half order or a full one. If it's your first time, order half to sample what your favorite will be. That’s what I did, but I ordered two different main dishes and ended up very, very full but satisfied. I'm sure you will return to eat here. If you are vegetarian, this place will warm your heart, as they will make veggie-only dishes if you want.
About the drinks, they have great smoothies with fresh fruit and yogurt or ice cream, mojitos, etc. I didn't try the alcoholic ones, but the people around me were very pleased with their drinks, which looked well-served in generous portions, not as I have seen in other more touristy places in town.
The prices are good for what you are served, and by the end of your meal, you will agree that it was worth every cent.

Giant mango margaritas and trying to communicate in French and Spanish kept us entertained. It was well worth the wait. I had spicy, flavorful shrimp curry served with vegetables and garlic mashed potatoes. I had expected noodles, but the mashed potatoes were delicious. There is an extensive Thai menu available in half or full orders. Full dinners are between $8 and $12.
A return visit to PDC called for another meal or two at Babe's. For lunch I tried the Pad Thai, made with regular noodles not rice noodles, full of colorful, fresh vegetables and a sweet and tangy sauce. A few days later, I returned for the shrimp and vegetables with red curry. All meals beautifully presented and served with sourdough bread. The staff is friendly and attentive.
