Small restaurant with great food

This is a tiny shop absolutely redolent with the flavors and spices of Thai cooking. We eat in as often as we take out, but just know you will be close to the other diners. It never feels too noisy to me. My kids love the Pad Thai, potstickers, and hot and sour soup that comes with the lunch... read more

The Yum Nua is so fresh and delicious! The steak was juicy and very tender. The dishes can be very hot, so be careful! The Crab Rangoon was also very flavorful and they did not skimp on the stuffing! Everything was very fresh and our server was very pleasant!

The food was just good. The spring rolls were not fresh and light but rather a fried mess. The Pad Thai was really greasy. The worst part was the restaurant itself. It was very crowded and smelled bad,

Before you order, look up on the glass wall by kitchen. The sign says that the spicy is really spicy, so you will need to think level of spiciness before you place your order. I love spicy food, but I keep mine mild here so I can actually enjoy the taste of ingredients. The food is family style, and just... More

I'm the kind of person who enjoys eating spicy food that literally will make you sweat and cry. This is the only place I have found that will satisfy that need. The Thai fried rice is delicious. I always ask for mine extra spicy ans they always warn me it's very hot, however, I love it!! Delicious fresh made to... More

This restaurant is family owned and the food is really quite good. Small number of tables, great for take out. Really good panang chicken, and pad thai. They will make the food thai spicey upon request...but be sure you really want it like that!! We love for take out and dining in.

I am so glad a friend told me about this restaurant. It's so small that you could easily miss it. Don't be put off by the small parking lot; there's public parking behind the restaurant and also street parking. I think they probably get a lot of business from college students walking from Wheaton College which is close by. It's... More

Amazing service. Truly HOT food. Most thai places, you ask for spicy and you get catsup hot....BORING! Not here! I asked for hot and I got hot, just the way I like it. No wimps here! Wheaton consists of college kids and attorneys. Neither of which deserve food and service this good. Great menu. Tiny though. Only seating for about... More

Have never eaten in the restaurant but have gotten take out many times. Food is absolutely delicious! Pad See Eew is awesome and so is Pad Thai. Almost everything we have tried has been wonderful. Prices are not bad and easy to get in and out for pick up. Highly recommend!
