Good food but service was somewhat strange

We called in to collect a takeaway and were ignored for quite a while even though we could see our food was ready and waiting. No apology for this but we paid and took the food.

The guy working the register and waiting was very friendly and obliging, however the wait for the food was long, I ordered the fried sweet potato and they were regular potatoes (huge difference in taste, I ordered because I wanted the sweet potato), the green curry was a little different because I've never had it with cabbage, asparagus and big...

Had the Tom Yum here, we liked it, they made it more spicy as we requested. Was enough for two people. Service was just great, no complaints. Hope they get some help, felt bad for the guy cooking solo in the back, looks like he hasn't sleep in months. If you go here with a larger group, keep in mind... More

They have the best Thai food in town! Tom Kha Soup is so flavorful. We ordered a small and it was enough to feed us. Pad Thai with Shrimp was one of the best I've ever. It was beautifully presented. The waitress was very nice. She gave us Thai ice tea on the house.

This unexpected, exotic little place is tucked into the Capitola Village restaurants on the beach. The restaurant is small and casual, typically Asian in its decor. I ordered spring rolls, rice and an entree. The spring rolls were good. The ingredients were fresh and the presentation was very nice. The dipping sauce was tasty-- spiced the right way. The rice...

Based upon reviews, I expected more thai cuisine. There were two on the menu, the rest basically were curry dishes. The meal was good. The place is a bit run down and needs a thorough cleaning.

We ate here after a recommendation from a local shop employee. It was very good thai food. One man was serving and cooking at the time, but he was so polite. Great service and the pumpkin curry was unique and delicious.

I found a fly at the bottom of Tom kah. Luckily the extra protein was a great addition. Unfortunately I wasn't extremely excited about the addition so I went to get a refund, that they obliged to. Usually great so I was disappointed.

We have been coming to beautiful Capitola for years but always missed this place. I won't walk past it again. The best Thai food ever!

We were a little worried when it was empty but I have no idea why there is not a line outside waiting to get in. Great dinner!!!
