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

As I have said in past reviews I tend to give places at least a second try before I write a review. Well its been two visits and probably my last. First visit was shortly after opening. The only issue we had was the owner(?) was extremely rude to us and our niece. We were sitting waiting on our meals... More

Great Thai food but there is also an American menu. A family run restaurant with a touch of sports bar thrown in. Service is great, our favorite waiter is Terence. Can definitely recommend the calamari and coconut shrimp.

We were excited to try their Thai food. Friendly staff but the dinners were not spicy Thai and it was pricey. $19 for a dinner that was average at best. I couldn't believe when they turned people away at 7:30 pm when there was an NBA final game starting at 8pm. Why do they call themselves a sports bar?

Love this place. Clean and good food with something for all. Thai Food for my wife that she raves about and my usual, twin lobster tails and slaw for me. A place my wife and I can always agree to visit.
