Do not under any circumstances be put off by the outside of this restaurant. The plain, even forbidding exterior opens into a warm and inviting eating space, run by charming hosts, where they serve from an enormous menu of outstanding Thai dishes. My wife and I went with members of our daughter's Ultimate Disc team, and had terrific spicy Pad... More

This was really good Thai food. The owner/server was friendly and helpful. His small children played a quiet game of hide and seek that left us with a smile. They do a great take out business that can interfear with a quiet meal. Think rustic, small and family friendly for them and you.

Very good and authentic Thai food! Best I've had in a long time. Parking is kinda wierd but worth any inconvenience. Service was great and prices very reasonable with large portions. Don't miss this one.

Don't let the outside fool you, this is the best place to eat in Chico!!! Wonderful restaurant for vegetarians and meat eaters alike. Everything on the menu (with the exception of the "larb") has been fantastic (I've ordered probably 20 different things). The food has great spice, and generous portions. The green, red, and yellow curries are all fabulous in... More

It doesn't look like much - simple ambience but the menu is impressive and the food-quality definitely memorable. They also flavor the "heat" per request. Much better to come with several people so you can try several different dishes

The menu is complete with all the Thai favorites and the food is always fantastic. No doubt the best Thai food in Chico, and the only restaurant to serve sticky rice. The atmosphere is also quite nice and the portions are generous.

My favorite place for Thai food. Good prices and very good execution on the dishes. Unlike Chada Thai in Chico, their food does not come out too sweet and not spicy at all. If you want good, actually spicy Thai food (they do make it to your taste) this is the place. Great fresh flavors. The rice stick noodles in... More
