Terrific Thai food. Yellow curry was delicious. Good flavors, good pricing. Chicken Satay skewers were just right. Definitely a good find.

Little pricey for Thai, but the cooking was spot on. Ingredients fresh, flavors exact. Meal wwll-plated, without being kitchey. Might have liked a little more lime and lemongrass.

Overpriced for the portions compared to other restaurants I've been to. Flavors weren't as authentic as I had expected. Other than that, the atmosphere was great, the location was easy to find.

Great service and delicious food. Pad Thai is a favorite and pineapple fried rice. The kids love it too!

I consider myself a "thai lover". this is by far one of the nest in south florida. the beef salad is simply unparalleled. service is always good. kind of a low key place for the locals - not fancy but fresh and good every time. service is great. staff are welcoming and on point.

Some of the dishes they kept from the old owners (when they got their good Michelin rating) were ok, but nothing beyond a local lunch joint now.

Food was nothing special. Tried Crab Rangoon, crunchy shrimp and pineapple fried rice with chicken. Did not like the tofu in the fried rice. Barely any crab in the Rangoon. Service was slow. Only one server for the whole place. Wasn't very busy, but she was very slow.

The lunch special appeared VERY quickly and actually tasted like it had been sitting around waiting to be served....it was dry and gummy. I'm willing to give this restaurant another chance because my friends LOVE it, and I've read a number of positive reviews -- but I was disappointed.

Adventuresome cuisine- not your ordinary Thai restaurant. Service is excellent. It's not fancy but it's very good.
