This is a must visit for authentic, fabulous tasting Thai cuisine. Sits on top of a waterside bar, and provides outside seating as well as very comfortable bar and table service. The owner is on-site and is very involved with your food and service and ensures your satisfaction. GREAT THAI FOOD!

Loved the view from outdoor seating and loved the food. Staff is super nice. Fish dishes are excellent. PadThai is little sweeter than it suppose to be. Snacks are very tasty. Thai tea is very good. Fried rice is very well done. All chicken and shrimp varieties that we ordered are impressive. Great location. Not really expensive. Close to authentic... More

Great view and food! My boyfriend didn't want to go because it was a Thai Restaurant. The main thing he wanted was Saki with his food. He dislikes beer, but sine we arrived at Key West, he was forced to drink beer only and finally insisted on finding a restaurant with Saki. We're wimps, so we sat inside the sushi... More

Three where curries and the other was a basil based sauce. They fried half the fish and steamed the other half. Everything was amazing and we... More

Over time, the dishes got snake and smaller and price bigger and bigger...they stopped giving military/local discount on to go orders (the whole office used to order I'd think... More
