People who live around here are lucky. It's rare to find a Thai place with good food, extensive, interesting menu, good service, AND good prices. I had Pad Woon Sen (glass or silver thread noodles) and it was delicious. Only criticism is adding items not listed on the menu, but hey, this is a family-style restaurant. I decided to order...

The dining area decor is not the greatest but the food was good and the staff was very attentive. I would definitely recommend this restaurant especially compared to other restaurants in the area.

What left the biggest impression on me about my experience was the service. We came with a large group (7) so we made an advance reservation. Our table was ready, servers were always there to help out and get orders. The dishes came out insanely fast, our waters were always full. They helped us split the bill, and all around... More

We were visiting family in Empire, and they ordered carryout from here since they said it was so good. I got the Gai Tom Kha (lemon chicken soup) $10.40 - Tender chicken in coconut milk with galangal, lemon grass, kaffir lime leaves, straw mushrooms and lime juice. Served with rice. It was SO GOOD! I also shared a noodle dish... More

This place is a "must try" if you have never been! I've been going regularly for 5 or 6 years now. Our family favorite! The food is always consistently awesome, and service is exceptional. It looks like a bare bones restaurant, but the food is why you will keep coming back to this place!

They have a wide variety of food to choose from. And they have a wall covered with pictures of the meals, I find this very helpful! We had a bunch of different egg rolls. They were all awesome! The staff was very friendly and helpful in choosing a meal. I will gladly go back!

This place has been serving great food in Apple Valley for 14 years. It has a tiny store front in a strip mall that doesn't reveal the open simple family atmosphere inside. A friend told me about how good it is and I was not dissapointed. You can order any strength of Thai spice down to mild and the flavors... More
