Well, the people (other than the husband) that work here are definitely Thai, but the food was not great. I ordered a stir-fry dish and I never heard anything fried (the place is TINY so you can hear everything and see mainly into the kitchen). The only sound I heard was multiple times in the microwave! the food was OK,... More

Nothing to complain about. Hard to be mean spirited about this effort to provide a welcome service and atmosphere. Great cooking by a Thai lady 'Rosie' . Two thumbs up!

I'm not sure why other customers have given this restaurant a poor review or that the husband and wife customer service was "quirky". My family arrive at this restaurant at 8:30pm just as the restaurant was closing up. Rotjana assured us that it was just fine. I had trouble finding this restaurant as we are from out of town. We...

Buffet night is the way to go. try everything. the squash soup ismy favorite. and my guy loved the drunken noodles. Green papaya salad was delicious. be patient with the owner/server, he is a quirky guy, occasionally scattered, but good natured and well meaning.

It is very unfriendly environment where things seem to be all on the cook as if the server is retired and only their to answer the phones or look over whelmed getting drinks very unorganized and you get meals late and their is no heat lamp used they need group deals for take out and a new Host/greeter. .

Excellent food! Some of the best Thai food I've eaten outside of Thailand. Rosy and Nigel are very attentive to details and take care to label for food sensitivities such as gluten-free.

Really want good things for this place because the food is superb however the owners arent always kind. They can be abrubt and sometimes odd. The food is sometimes missing ingredients listed like baby corn- peppers. Or just not enough ingredients for the price. Overall value is fine with some dishes but there really needs to be consistency especially for... More

I love Thai food. I love most Asian cuisines. This is very good, very authentic Thai food. The quality is good. And it is made fresh. My main beef about this place is the service. It is just weird. Sometimes very unfriendly. Sometimes very slow. At times, the restaurant is not open, even though the hours say it should be.... More
