Very disappointing

Had high hopes after reading all the positive reviews. Food was served barely warm-rice was like glue. Never received all items ordered. Will never return.

We went with some Chinese-American friends who really like this; as another noted, a lot of the customers are Asian-American. The menu is extensive, the portions very good. But I didn't think the food was nearly as good as what I find in Houston, San Fransisco, or even Monterey. We parked on the street close by (this was on a... More

Any restaurant that will make what you want off the menu automatically gets four stars. Fast, Friendly and Flexible wait staff and cooks. Despite being busy and parking being a huge challenge. I was still able to pick my own seat and request special side dishes. This place is worthy of multiple repeats and if your local a part of... More

Parking can be challenging if you don't arrive early; coincidentally, I had arrived early and got one of the last spots. There are valet/ traffic directors to assist if you are not fortunate to get a parking spot. Upon arrival, we were seated quickly and service was very good. There is a special menu and a regular menu, so we... More

This is one of my favorite places to eat in a regular bases. I love the food and costumer service. Prices are right and deserts are very tasty. I recommend the Mango with sticky rice. I will be back! Michael Dergar

Everything I have had here so far has exceeded my expectations. The staff at this family owned business is attentive, hard working, team oriented and driven by customer service. They take the time to listen to requests and deliver your specifications whether it is lunch, dinner or takeout. It is my top favorite restaurant in Pasadena.

If you want the real thing go to President Thai. It is one of the best thai restaurants I have been to in the LA area. Don't ask for Thai spicy if you do not mean it. What a great place!
