We always enjoy coming here for the great Thai food, but tonight, dinner was especially good. We tried the Thai steamed dumplings for the first time, and they were outstanding! Four, small, perfectly formed little dumplings with a delicious sauce on the side. Our main dishes were the Panang Curry (we ordered both the pork and the chicken), and the... More

Maybe it was just an off night but from our experience in the past, things have degraded. The food portions seem smaller, aren't as tasty and the service wasn't as good as it used to be. We were generally disappointed. Think we will try a different place next time we want Thai food.

Ok so our favorite restaurant was completely full next door, so we went in to get a beer and an appetizer while we waited for a table... we wound up staying for dinner. Looked like an Irish/Sports Pub. And when we walked in the majority of the staff was Thai. Okaaay. We are always up for an adventure and were... More

Very casual, warm inviting restaurant/bar. Have eaten there about a dozen times, and always great service and good food. Recommend for casual evening out and quick bite.

we looked forward to going back when we arrived this fall, but found it a little different from last time. The portions were not as large but the prices were up. They no longer bring out the pepper pot with a selection of hot spices for the Thai food unless you ask for it and now there are only two... More

We have been to this restaurant many times before and loved the Thai food. Came back to FL this year and found the prices are up but food portion had gone way down. Wait staff was not as attentive - I ordered brown rice with my dinner, it came with white rice. Told waiter I ordered brown rice, he looked... More

My wife and I love this little Bar and Grill. It's one of our favorites locally. It has something for everyone. The wait staff is excellent, the owners are present most of the time and the atmosphere is friendly and proficient. It's a great place for brunch, lunch or dinner. All dishes are moderately priced. Very, Very busy during Snowbird... More

This is one of my favorite "go to-when hungry" restaurants!.. If you love Thai food and he/she likes American ....it's a must! The Chicken Panang Curry is excellent!! I have asked them to add peppers and zucchini...not a problem. They are open till 9PM, and the Owner's (Sue & Peter) when present) come around to see how your doing. Great... More
