Lunch with sons.

Great for lunch. You can get lunch with soup and an appetizer for about $9. Service is very good, food is very good.

The food is bland - just an underseasoned mess. Right down the street is Alt Thai which is much nicer from a food, service and ambience standard.

Went for a dinner and ordered a veg curry rice. I felt the rice is stale and couldnt eat atleast half of the portion. Didnt like the service as well. Then we understood that why the place was empty even on a weekend night. A big NO for this.

Traveling on business and this restaurant was on a recommended list. Ordered take out for a quick bite. Ended up with a very tasty, just right meal. A great break from eating at a chain restaurant.

with very cost effective lunch specials including large portions and appetizers of egg rolls with soup, this small, somewhat out of the way Thai restaurant was a pleasant surprise. Plenty of traditional Thai options with a good control on the spices.

At night, the portions are bigger...enough left over for the next day. We are about a half hour away and have tried... More

My parents introduced me to this restaurant after going with some friends. Really delicious Thai food. I've tried the Massaman curry with Chicken, Seafood Salad (scallops/squid/crab meat/chiles/tangy dressing I think made of fish sauce/sugar/vinegar/chiles), curry salmon, and Thai fried rice.
