Amazing

We visit Paso every year, we eat here at least 2 times in our 8 day trip. Sometimes more. We have NEVER been disappointed, not with the food or the staff.

Food was great, room was a wee bit dark and required our phone light to read the menu. Other than that, atmosphere was nice.

The food is awesome and the interior is very nice. Try the Basil Chicken of Basil Fish, I guarantee you'll love it.

Love the variety of Thai dishes. Not the same menu as every other Thai restaurant. The place is busy so make reservations or get there early. Very good service. A real go-to place in Paso.

The server brought two little mini tastes of the pale ale options for my husband to taste even though he didn't even think... More

A friend and I dined here after work on a weeknight and the place was pretty empty. We were early, I can guess that to be the only reason because the food was delicious and the staff very accomodating. I ordered the Panang curry which was delicious. I like to think I like my curry with medium heat but in... More
