Well I must say Thai cuisine is one of my favorites and I've been to most in the Boston area. I was surprised with menu, as I had not seen a few dishes they make. I tried many dishes as you all know I am a chef, and I'm picky. I threw everything at the waiter, changing up the standard... More

The food here is pretty good. Good flavor, good taste, great heat if you want a disk with a lot of bang (which they definitely offer). The only issue I have with this place is that the kitchen odor really seems to get into the dining area and is frankly, less than pleasant. It is quite affordable (if not inexpensive... More

Nothing was bad but nothing stood out as exceptional. A good place for a bite to eat if you are not in a rush.

We have dined here for many years and are always pleased, both with the food and the service. Some of our favorites main dishes are "Pad Thai and Massaman Curry with brown rice. As far as appetizers go we love their "Satay Chicken, Soft Dumplings and Crispy Spring Rolls". On this particular evening two members of our party had physical... More

Dining here one recent evening with family members, I had an opportunity to try a variety of shared dishes. I particularly enjoyed -the tofu triangles, an appetizer delicately fried and served with a peanut-garnished dipping sauce, and -the vegetable curry, which had a delicately spicy sauce that included Indian eggplant (yummy and not all like the kind of eggplant we're...

I came here with a group from work and ordered and assortment of appetizers and entrees. Overall the food was at least average with some dishes being above average but none excellent. Worth giving it a try since the food looked good and tasted fresh. Some of my colleagues had been here before and already had their favorites.

I've eaten at this restaurant over fifty times. It is a great location (right off 128 at Winter St) and the food is excellent. At lunch time, expect to get there before noon or you'll find both parking and the wait to be a pain. I love the Masaman Curry, the spring rolls and most of their soups. Hot tea... More

I was traveling to Waltham on business and looking for a Thai place close by. I stopped in for dinner and ordered the green curry chicken with rice and the spring rolls. The spring rolls were good. They were cooked a little longer than I expected (darker brown texture) but the flavors were still the same. You get five in... More
