Hot food for winter season but service can be improved

The place is decent and serve nice thai food, delicious actually. The service was a little confused, the dishes weren't delivered at the same time which is not cool when you are with kids, they were the last served and took a while. Overall its a nice place to go!

The portions are small. But definitely tasty. The green curry was good but preferably with chicken instead of beef. The eggplants are the huge american type. All in all it was satisfying.

Food are decent. Not really authentic Thai taste rather Americanize Thai food. Well, if they serve authentic Thai food no one who hasn't been and stay a long time in Thailand will go back 2nd time. We used to live in Thailand for 15 years so we not only know real Thai food also adapt and came to love the... More

Great Pad Thai. The restaurant is a little small and outdated, but the food was delicious. It was located directly across the street from our hotel and after driving all day it was a great place for a couple drinks & dinner.

They let me pick what vegetables I wanted in my dish, cooked my tofu crunch, and topped it all with thick sweet peanut sauce. The food was wonderful. My husband also enjoyed his dish. Everything was fresh and crunchy - not overcooked. Their prices were very reasonable, and the decor was beautiful. We loved the big sea aquariums.

I would give it 4.5 stars. I don't know whether it was authentic Thai food. However, I have eaten in many Thai restaurants and this menu listed quite a few dishes I had never heard of. Five of our party of 6 agreed that the cuisine here is outstanding. And the restaurant is very accommodating, preparing the dishes for the... More

Alas, I have waited too long to write my review and my memory has faded. Our visit was 5 months ago, on an unseasonably quiet winter weekend. There was no snow to speak of, indeed there had been none for some time, so the streets were devoid of traffic and so were restaurants. This translated into immediate seating for our... More

Thai food is my sons favorite and he insists this is the best Thai food he has eaten. He travels everywhere and often. Five of us enjoyed Tuesday dinner served family style with my son ordering the dishes. We started with what appeared to be make-it-yourself mini Thai chicken wraps. The meat appeared to be crumbled chicken which was insipid... More

Fast and cheap compared to others in the vicinity. we were having a craving for Thai Food and visited this place. Service is fast and the food does qualify as Thai food but I have had better Thai food before and was slightly disappointed with it, may be one should lower their expectations, it will certainly not taste the way...

Service is horrible. Food is mediocre at best, not truly authentic Thai. The dishes are quite expensive. You're looking to pay about $15 per small curry dish... Service: They are so understaffed that they take 15 mins to give you a menu and then another 20 minutes before they come and take your order. I had to ask for someone... More
