Pretty darned good food

We had dinner here only because the restaurant we wanted to go to was closed on Monday night. We were not in the least bit disappointed. One of the owners served us and she could not have been more accommodating and kind. The food was really good (the only reason I gave 4 instead of 5 stars is... read more

We stopped here en route home from Scottsdale. It is half way and a good place to get food. My wife wanted something other than fast food even though neither of us were particularly hungry. We stopped here before with mediocre results but figured we would give it a second try. Bad choice on our part. They don't have a... More

I've never tried Thai food and I learned I don't like Peanut sauce. Yuch. Having said that, the service was excellent and the food was fresh and well presented. This seems like a very nice restaurant. I expected spicy food, but when I asked my server for the names of spicy dishes, she said there were none. I like spicy,... More

The food is always great quality. The service lately has gotten really good. Prior to August, 2015, the service was okay, but you had to wait 20 minutes to get your bill. The staff has changed lately and the service has improved immensely. Always lots of food for the money, so plan on leftovers. They offer a lunch special prior... More

We had the beef big bowl of soup and chicks pad Thai entrees. The food tasted fishy. Don't waste your time here.

I am no Thai expert but I like the food here. Curry and pad Thai dishes are good. Some of the seafood dishes can be a little "fishy" so know your tastes.

I cannot think of a better Thai restaurant up north as long as you have time for them to make you an extremely delicious meal. It was worth the wait but I do feel everyone should be warned in advanced it is a place that seems to make EVERY item AFTER it is ordered, which is actually a very good... More

Having never knowingly eaten Thai food before, and having heard it would be too spicy for me, I didn't really know what to expect. Went with my mom (77), and had a great dinner. Don't remember what stuff was called, but they had these great little chicken skewers with a cucumber/onion garnish, and a peanut sauce. Then I had a... More
