Nice Lunch

Reasonable price, lovely space and atmosphere. Great food. It was easy to find right in the Basha's shopping center. Lots of easy acess parking. The atmosphere and space allowed us to comfortably visit over our lunch. I had an easy time choosing a lunch that fit my health issues.

Excellent choice for lunch or dinner if you like Thai food. Very good choice if you've never tried Thai food, just remember to ask for "MILD" if you're not a person who likes heat in their food. Reasonably priced, the food was very flavorful, nice portion and freshly prepared. I've eaten here many times and tried several different things on... More

You owe it to yourself to stop here on your way through Payson, whether as a solo, a couple or a family. The food is soooo tasty, presentation excellent, charming service and pleasant atmosphere with a full bar service if desired. A real jewel in Payson on Hwy 260 across the Hwy from Safeway.

I was completely surprised to find this gem in Payson. I have eaten Thai food all over the state, as it is my favorite. This is hands down the best. The service was also friendly and efficient and the prices are very reasonable.

we love thai food so as we were passing through town we decided to give it a try. If you live in the area do yourself a favor and give this place a try. Fresh, filling, tasty and reasonably priced - what more could you ask for?

Excellent Thai, last two visits had Panang Beef, very good. This food has been consistently good for the two years eaten here. Major issue for me was prior ownership would give chicken when I ordered beef. Friends have had curry dishes, and salads and always enjoyed. I have had many Thai dishes in the valley, and are equal in quality,... More

I don't understand how this place is getting bad reviews? We think this is one of the best Thai restaurants. Our friends have a Thai cafe and we are used to their more traditional approach to preparation. This place has that same taste and feel. The interior is bright and cheerful with a playful attitude. Touches of Thai tradition finish... More

Worst Thai food ever. I've been here twice and both times have barely eaten what I've ordered. Just gross and greasy. Made me sick both times. The last time I couldn't even order anything from the bar on a Friday night because apparently only *one* guy could make drinks and they had no idea where he was.

I guess I don't really like Thai food, it is too spicy for me, but my sister in law loves Thai food and she said it was good. The staff was very friendly and the service was good. I wouldn't go back myself unless I was with my sister in law again.
