The pineapple rice was excellent. We had it with chicken. The drunken noodles were also good. We also had that with chicken. The red curry was good with seafood. The only thing that was not great was the ginger pork. The service was very friendly and efficient. The space is big and airy. Parking... read more

Very nice people work here but we were disappointed in the excessive amount of tomatoes used in the recipes to the point of tasting like ketchup was used. Very pricy for the portions served.

The first thing, I am surprised that neither the restaurant nor TripAdvisor have corrected the address! They have been at 85 East Main Street for some time, according to our waitress. We stopped here for an early in the week, but fairly late lunch. For that reason, I was not too concerned that there were only a few other customers.... More

When my children come home from college this is the first place (besides my kitchen)where they want to go! The service is great and the food is even better. Very fresh tasting and fun to try new things. The traditional standbys of Thai food are done well and the Sticky Rice with Mango for dessert is awesome!

It may not be fair because I was only there once for a buffet lunch party. Pad Thai was not good, nothing was impressive but the private room was nice

Very disappointing. Nothing memorable. Not sure what keeps this going. Pad Thai very ordinary. The service was fine.

I was very impressed with this place right away. Food was great, service was good and the overall experience was delightful. I really didn't know what to expect and I'm not too firmiliar with Thai food but I really enjoyed this place and I can't wait to eat there again. I also really liked that you can bring your own...

I have gone to this restaurant twice now. The food was good, however the portions were somewhat small relative to the price. The larger problem was service, which was slow and unimpressive - for me at least. Maybe I was there on "bad days", however I have to rate my overall experience as "average" for now.
