We have been here 2 times to eat in and I have gotten it to go another time or 2. The food is great and relatively quick. The service is 'ok' and not that they dont tend to you but are typically just awkward and in street clothes. Otherwise, I love their cashew chicken and green curry as well as... More

Very good food. I am a vegetarian and the owner is always making sure I am satisfied. The lunch buffet does not have a vegetarian entree but she will make me a special veg curry dish. Very thoughtful. I enjoy sitting outside on the screened in porch. It is family owned and they are all working hard to please customers.... More

This is such a nice place to eat. The outdoor patio was very pleasant. The buffet for lunch is very good. My favorite are the dumplings and the curry dishes. We went on a Friday and there was a catfish dish. So good. The deserts for the lunch buffet are minimal.

Great Thai buffet, small and quaint in an old house. Not a whole lot to choose from but plenty to choose from including Pad Thai and a curry dish. Never felt like because it was a buffet the quality was comprised. Really warm and friendly people.

The food here is actually pretty good and we've eaten in several times. It's old and dated but the food is decent. However, after two completely wrong takeout orders in a row I am DONE with this place. We live 20 minutes away and it's not worth going back to get the correct order. The first time the order was...

Some of the best Thai I have tried yet. Also, service was so friendly and kind. Love the homey feeling, really feels like they're family serving a great meal.. I have only gone for lunch, which is the buffet, and everything I tried was delicious!

This is definitely not the best Thai food on the planet but I'm still grateful it is nearby and the price is certainly good. I like the curries on the buffet but it does seem to me to be more Chinese at times than Thai but what do I know?

Had lunch with my boss Friday, Dec 19th 2014. We had the buffet. It was his treat, idea, and I had no clue this place existed. Food was amazing for me personally as well as for my boss (he has very particular tastes and visits frequently). Anyway, stuffed to the gills on great tasting thai food, we waddled to the... More
