We always visit this family restaurant away from the beach and tourist traps. It's so nice to get away from all the same old places that cater to the customer that they know is not coming back. Food is fresh reasonably priced and family is great

Restaurant was clean and attractive. The food was good. The waitress seemed new and seemed rather intimidated by the lady who seems to run the place. The food was very good, hot and fresh. I ordered a red curry extra hot and was not disappointed. My wife had green curry which was again to her liking. My son was also... More

We are locals and go to the restaurant very frequently, ordered food to go, my daughter chewed on something that appeared to be a small rock and chipped her tooth and the establishment was willing to do NOTHING about it!!! Extremely disappointed and will never return here!!

We went with friends to eat Thai, and this is the best we have had at the beach since our old favorite changed hands. I had the Pad Thai Chicken and my husband had the Basil Stir Fry chicken and vegetables. BOTH were very good! We kept sharing! It was plenty of food and the service was Fabulous! I wish... More

My husband and I have been here a few times since it changed owners several years ago. While I like the ambiance, Thai music and decor, those things don't make up for the fact that it is overpriced. Iced tea for $3.00??? My husband had Royal grouper and I had Royal salmon, and they were attractively presented but not really... More

We had a really good spicy soup with large shrimp in it. The pork chop plate had 4 large grilled pieces. The tempura shrimp and vegies was perfect for us, spiced just right. The service was good and at 5 pm quite. A good break for a busy day.

The controlling woman who seats guests, takes orders and delivers most of the dishes is annoying. She questions my husbands request for "thai hot" every time we eat there. The woman is rude. The food is not good, authentic Thai food.

We love this restaurant. This restaurant has been open under the same owner for many years-maybe since they have opened. We have eaten many times over the years. The food is fresh and consistant. The service has always been good, even on refills. We order an appetizer and an entree. All appetizers are good, but the spring rolls are especially... More
