Nothing fancy, but great food!

You certainly don't want to judge a book by its cover! The first time we visited the restaurant was out of pure hunger & nothing else was open....what a pleasant surprise we found! The interior of the restaurant could really use a make-over but the food was fantastic on our first trip there and... read more

It was ok. Paid $17 for shrimp and noodles, which seems a little pricey to me. Food was decent but I wouldn't make a specific trip here. It's true like another reviewer wrote, everything was a little sticky.

It's a mystery to me why this place has some glowing reviews. The food was barely edible. We ordered Thai Basil and Green Curry -- neither seemed freshly prepared but the portions were big (that's usually a bad sign, as far as I'm concerned). In short, eat here and you will get generic Asian flavors for Americans in abundance.

Excellent Thai food, cooked by a chef who helped rescue hostages during the Iran hostage crisis of the 1980's. His courage is matched by his culinary skill!

This wasn't the best Thai food, but it was a welcomed difference from the typical road food we'd been eating.

Where ever I go, I check out 'thai.' The curries and the pad thai are exceptional here, demanding return visits or multiple take-outs. There's no ambiance except make it a point to read the posted newsprint. A winner.

This is a very basic restaurant, and the ambiance is not what you go for, but the food we had was very good! We had the Ginger Fish, and it was fantastic. After eating here we rented Argo which was a terrific movie, and Sam (chef owner) played an important role in insuring those 6 Americans made it home. Very... More

Apparently the chef here was a hero in Tehran in the '70s, and that's great, but the food just wasn't very good. Nothing fresh. Most of it seemed like generic canned sauces combined with limp frozen vegetables. Still, the options in Rangely in the middle of the winter aren't great; it'll do in a pinch.

This was some of the best Thai food I have ever had! Delicious! Service was super! The chef/owner came out and talked to us. Turns out he is somewhat of a national hero and has prepared Thai cuisine all over the world for dignitaries.
