Don't judge a book by its cover

It's easy to judge a restaurant by its looks and for many people, aesthetics is an important criterium when it comes to restaurants, which is understandable considering hygiene and comfort. However, when you're looking for authentic Thai food, sometimes these are the best places. Looks like... read more

Despite the good reviews on Trip Advisor, we thought the food was mediocre at best - this is not good Thai food!!

It is a diner with lots of seating. Very lively place. Mainly local and few tourists there. Nothing fancy about it, but efficient organization of the business. Huge variety of food options, and the prices are next to nothing. I started with Tom Kah Kai and it was exactly as it should be. Putting this place on my list of... More

Real Thai food is served there. Service may be sometimes quite slow... Food is tasty (I went there many times on different years) and prices are reasonnable. Size is normal for European, but could look small for American people.

eMost Thai restaurants aren't so good. It must be hard to get the right balance. Tom Yum Kung is an exception. Everything was spot on - not too much and not too little, with good spicing on every dish. Portions are just the right size and dishes cost about three bucks. The service was good too. The waitress came by... More

Very good and very fresh. Tom Yum soup is fantastic. If you ask for HOT, expect HOT. Its Thai people. Not for the faint of heart. Good overall experience. Delivery is sometimes slow. But they are busy for a big reason.

Ordered pad thai, deep fried fish, and tom yum kung. It was really, really delicious. Very tasty. I highly recommend it! I had my meal delivered.

We at an early dinner here, and really enjoyed ourselves. The place got slammed by a very young crowd just as we arrived, which resulted in somewhat slow service, as well as some confusion about getting my wife's drink order filled, but we weren't in a huge hurry so this wasn't a big problem. We ate the homemade Thai sausage,... More

Basic but clean restaurant. Wonderful authentic Thai food without all the fuss and decoration of the expensive restaurants. Always full, which tells you a lot
