What a treat this place was. Very low key interior but the food was excellent. Had the shrimp pad Thai, very good firm noodles and jumbo sized shrimps. Great service and friendly staff. Kept ordering more food because it was so good!

We love thai food and were so happy to find a thai restaurant in Marathon. We decided to give it a miss when we pulled up at 6pm and it was empty thinking it was not very nice and went the steak place next door. When we came out about 8pm the place was very busy so we decided to... More

It is a small place located next to a bait shop (giggling everytime I go ) It isnt pretty or frilly or even very asian in decor but the chef is the best sushi maker on the rock and its his place. I eat the Thai food and am never disappointed. My friends rave about the sushi and vegan options.... More

If you want high quality sushi this is the only place to go. My husband and I both love it. The location is small and simple, but that is the only thing casual about it, because the food is absolutely FIRST RATE.

We live in Marathon and are always out to try new restaurants. This one is so small it was easily overlooked but e gave it a try. Outside isn't much to look at but the inside is clean, quaint and cute. I ordered the fried rice with a pineapple curry sauce. Delicious! The portion was big and even though I... More

As a friend once told me "If the menu has too many dishes, they're good at everything but not great at anything". This place has good food but no wow-factor. Reasonably priced for what they serve.

Pros: Great Thai fried rice, other dishes the spices were right but all tend to be on the sweet side, which means not the top notch Thai chef, just a good chef. Only one in town. Cons: Food was slow. Took us almost an hour to get food for 3. The only waiter was not very plesant, seems like he... More

We had Thai Nam Sad which was prepared traditional and delicious. I prefer the traditional pork version, but their chicken version was very good. The drunken noodle dish was very good. My spicy tuna roll was exceptional. Cute small establishment and good service. Reasonable price for sushi roll and Nam Sad. We are definitely going back when in port at... More

We were in the mood for something a little different, this was sure different just not what we expected. The waiter seemed to be over anxious to take our orders but that is minor. He took our drink orders as we were sitting down. Our two unsweetened iced teas came out s sweet tea and he spilled our beer. Luckily... More

During a recent drive from Orlando to Key West, I noticed that almost all of the Thai restaurants I passed were also sushi restaurants. It made me wonder why this is, and whether either type food could be very good. After eating at this place in Marathon, I got my answer. While I didn't get served the best red curry... More
