When I arrived at the strip mall, I was a bit concerned, Inside my picky friend was at the table having a grand time with the owner, tasting... read more

My wife and I ate here about a month ago on a Thursday. The food was pretty good despite the fact that he gives you so little. I rate the restaurant on the quality as well as quantity of food. The food was served hot and had good flavor. I think the owner, our server, must of had a off... More

Small "hole in the wall" in a strip-mall back S/E corner of Willow and Shaw. Have eaten there many times and have taken out. Owner takes orders. Will make as you request. You can change spice mild to hot or add vegetables. I love the Pad Kee-Mow which I add brocccoli. The main thing I like about this place the... More

I've been to a lot of Thai food places in Fresno and have witnessed a phenomenon of only what I can explain as serve-staff being on "Thai time". "Thai time" means that it takes decades to even be acknowledged let alone seated, then, dare I say eons for your order to actually come up. I can name 3 establishments off... More

This is a very small restaurant in a strip mall. The exterior is a little unprepossessing and the interior is ok but definitely not fancy. We ordered the coconut soup, pad thai and massamun curry. The soup was definitely delicious, one of the best I've had. The pad thai had a bit different taste to it but still very enjoyable.... More

I had the chicken panang and it was as good as any panang I've ever had. There was a little wait, but it's because everything is made from scratch after you order...including rice! The owner was the waiter and there to provide an explanation about Thai food to everyone in the restaurant. There are only about 12 tables, but several... More

My Wife and I literally stumbled across this restaurant in Clovis (next to Fresno) while heading to Olive Garden, and of course, we skipped OG to try it, and are VERY glad we did! This little restaurant is owned by Native Thai's that stick to real Thai or traditional Thai food, as they know it, and of course, being from... More
