Interesting and different menu for a restaurant to serve in this small rural town. I ate Thai selections and found them to be quite good.

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

I love the different flavors and foods. This has become my favorite restaurant in Payson. We live in Strawberry and drive the 25 mins. to eat here. We've take our granddaughters and they love it also.

Reviewed this restaurant a few years ago but after this last trip, I felt I needed to update my review. First, the service was horrible, very slow, unfriendly, and didn't understand what we wanted to order. Had to ask for flatware as the table only had two partial settings for the four of us and this was after our meal... More

This was a nice quiet Sunday evening restaurant though there were numerous diners there. We requests no beef on our beef and chicken dish, but the kitchen delivered both anyway. Our server was never around so we depended upon another server who was very nice. Food was ok, but we really enjoyed the peace and quiet away from noisy TV's... More

THe food is much better than the exterior indicates. Eat here several times and year and never disappointed. Now you can order and pay on lines and it is ready when you arrive. Great for quick, good meals. Also can order take out. Good service, good food, good prices. One of the best values in Payson.

this is terrible thai restaurant! The scallop in soup is freezer burnt, shrimp is not cook right, and pad thai chicken is cold...Wait time is more than an hour in a slow night!!! I don't know how this restaurant is open with too many health/food safety issues.

We went for lunch based on previous reviews. Theres not much customers when we dined. The place is very spacious. Food was served without a long wait and the server was friendly. The padthai is a bit off the mark on taste based on our previous experience in other Thai restaurants.

A pleasant surprise in the mountains! Food excellent, service wonderful and the price was modest. We had one of the special meals and the portion was more than we could eat. We highly recommend you try this place.
