First time here, went for lunch. Super friendly staff. Sat at a little table in the courtyard. We had the pan fried dumplings first, they were fantastic. I had the minced chicken with basil entrée-Delicious!! However, it was so spicey. I asked for medium spice, next time light spice. But it was awesome. Oh and lunch comes with a cup... More

All of the dishes we ordered were fantastic !!! Really delicious and just the right amount of seasoning - not too hot as Thai Food is sometimes. Wonderful Thai Fried Rice and the Pad Thai with Chicken was the best I've ever tasted. I would definitely recommend this "little jewel" to anyone who appreciates and enjoys exploring new "adventures in... More

Bad customer service, the restaurant looks really nice when you get in but that is where the good feeling end. The service lady was rude and very bad service. The food was plane without much flavor, the food was served with very bad presentation. It seemed that the restaurant is under staffed without any passion for food. Over priced for... More

I enjoyed their happy hour appetizers at $5 along with drinks. The corn cakes with cucumber relish were delicious.

The beef was almost raw, and the amount vegetables (green beans and eggplant) was just ridiculous. We also ordered a dish with suck, the same low quality ingredients. The soup was tasteless and I would say this was my worst Thai ever.

This was the best Thai restaurant in which we've eaten. The food was delicious, the service fine, and the prices quite reasonable. We ordered 5 different meals to share. All agreed that everything was superb.

We usually get Tom-Yum soup and standard pad thai dish. Their dishes with eggplant are great as well. I would recommend avoiding deep fried calamari appetizer.

This quaint restaurant is located on East Solano in Albany, just north of Berkeley. We got there right at 5, to find they offer happy hour appetizers at $5 each. We took advantage of this great offer and probably ordered too much food for just two. Satay, dumplings, and shrimp rolls were a delectable treat, especially given the price. Short... More

This restaurant was recommended by our daughter and we've had lunch here three times. Love the food, good selection with reasaonable prices. Lunch service is fast, not overly friendly, but the food makes up for it. Only wished we lived closer so we could visit more often. Only street parking, so be sure to have change for the meter ($1.50... More
