Went to lunch with a friend and was pleasantly surprised. We expected pub food and were delighted when we found Thai on the menu. We ordered two dished and shared both. I ordered the lobster roll special. It was good - not too much mayo. The fries were good too. The Thai was excellent. My friend ordered a non-coconut curry... More

We just had lunch there today, but decided to eat our main meal. I had Curry Lamb with rice and veggies and always adorned with a beautiful orchid. It was so so delicious, I just loved it! My husband had the Shrimps and Filet, also very good, with mashed potatoes and fresh veggies. It was a bit pricey, but well... More

Thai menu and American menu. You can't go wrong with either one. Prices are very reasonable, and the service staff is exceptional.

Veggie Rolls with a sweet and sour sauce and a couple of cold drafts hit the spot after golf today. My golfing buddy enjoyed the Sand Trap Nachos with a Guiness draft. Service was quick and served with a smile. Thanks Nida, great personality😊😊😊

Went with friends who own a second home in Venice. Located in a strip mall. Surprised by menu offering Thai food in a sports bar, but there is also an American menu. We ate a variety of Thai dishes and enjoyed them all. The service was attentive and good. It is a sports bar atmosphere and very enjoyable for a... More

I arrived at 7:35 on Sunday night. They had a closed sign in the door, which was unbelievable. I looked at their window sign and it said open until 8. So I walked inside. The bartender hollered at me "CLOSED". Nothing else, just "CLOSED". Maybe that was all the English he knew? They get a zero for manners, a zero... More

Loved it! Never knew such a great place was in the strip! I will return again. The waiter was awesome! He kept returning and we just couldn't make up our minds what to order! I decided on his recommendation ... Winner winner!

Met friends there we hadn't seen in months. The Thai was excellent & my friend's Philly looked good also. Our second visit, nice place quiet to carry on a conversation & enjoy the company and food.
