Compares well to best Thai in Seattle/Bellevue

Really excellent "Spicy Basil ground chicken with soft Tofu" The ground chicken was cooked perfectly as was the fried tofu. Slightly crispy on the outside. Great balance of fresh basil, sweet bell pepper, onion and the extra heat I added - fresh pickled Thai chili sauce. Finished with the fresh... read more

Pricier than most, not at all up to some reviews and recommendations. No tod Mun on menu, and no BBQ chicken. Would not return.

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

Very busy so food very fresh. Parking lot attendants so know car is safe. Large quantities of food and quality good. Not overly spiced. Good fried bananas, fried pork w string beans. Seafood pad Thai.
