This is an equation for a win in my book. Sushi is always good and I am a huge fan of the Pad Thai. I am glad my friends finally talked me into coming here.

I'm not really big into curry, that being said I have had everything else on the menu. All the other dishes are phenomenal. Also try the apps; salad rolls with peanut sauce, thai crab, or spring rolls. All great and the sauces that come with them is what truly makes the dish. Pad Thai is wonderful.

I was quite happy that I found this restaurant in T-town. I'm quite sure I will be visiting there a lot from now on. But maybe I... More

I guess the distinction between the two depends on rather you plan to order mainly Thai or mainly sushi. Ruan Thai seems to have slightly... More

I can't wait to go back to Tuscaloosa so that I can come back here! Best Thai food we have ever eaten. The Massaman Curry is divine!

I have been here before so I had high expectations. As always everyone is very nice. This time I had garlic chicken and it seemed they forgot the garlic. I certainly couldn't taste it.

The food was OK, I asked for my food to be hot. It come flavorless with a side of crushed dried peppers. I could put it on my food but there is no way to get the flavor cooked into the food, that was strike 1. They didn't have coca cola which for me is strike 2. They never did... More

good food, and definitely good for tuscaloosa. though it's a bit pricey at times.... if you're looking for a recommendation, try the green curry and the salad rolls.
