Good thai food

This is a standard thai place with good pad thai. We tried the chicken topped salad which we did not like. Too heavily spiced and too much liquid that did not stick to the salad contents. It felt like soup. I will go back as the remainder of the food was lovely.

This is a very good place for some fine food - accidentally I found this on our evening walks and thought to try it out. This place has a good owner who is very warm and welcoming - this is rare in California, as some places were not that welcoming...

We liked the food especially the Pad Thai and portions were generous. The service was competent but lacked charm; more smiles and menu suggestions would have been appreciated.

Went for Valentine's dinner. No festive atmosphere, no special desserts or food for the occasion. The Fresh veggie rolls were good but I have had much better. More casual w/out table cloth. Seemed like they are going thru some remodeling of some sort. It was also too cold for my taste. The servers were friendly but confused over what we... More

For a Thai restaurant out of the dozens in the area I think it was ok for a quick bite, but I wouldn't try to impress anyone bringing them there. The service was nice and they were super attentive, but the entrees were not spectacular. We were the last to leave and they didn't say a word until we were... More

My first time trying Thai cuisine. I had the Pineapple Chicken Curry. It was just the right blend of sweet and spicy. White or brown rice is served on the side. Thai iced tea was also very good. We walked to the restaurant, so parking wasn't an issue for us as others have mentioned.

Clean, attractive restaurant, freshly prepared food, attractively served. Good for take out or eat in. They will present food on platters for serving in your home -- appropriate for entertaining.

Needing a quick late lunch, we stopped here close to their 3:00 o'clock lunch closing time. They were very accommodating and prepared our food immediately. We all had curry, three different types, but they were all excellent. Each curry came with white rice and a green salad with a small spring roll. For the price, it was a lot of... More
