We tried the spring rolls, 2 curries, noodles, fried rice - they were all excellent. Next time we will try the Sushi. We have also called for... read more

Just ordered the pad Thai for take out. Food was good, large portion and good size shrimp in the meal. Quick service (5 minutes for my order to be ready). I would recommend this place for dinner.

We had not dined here in quite awhile and was very much looking forward to it. Staff are quick to get food items to you while hot. We noticed the menu had changed and lacked the dishes we usually order. The Spring rolls were delicious, love the sauce! Pad Thai was mushy and lacked most everything except noodles and shrimp.The...

I have been here for a few lunches. It is a bit awkward to get to and find if you are not from around here. Parking is plenty around the restaurant. Staff is certainly very friendly and quick. The food is quick too, but nothing special. The curries seem like they are thrown together rather than cooked together if you... More

This Thai restaurant has an extensive menu including some unusual dishes. The food is good but not exceptional; portions are generous and we had plenty to take home for the next day's lunch. We appreciated that they offered both brown and white rice.

Kind of a zoo during the lunch hour as there are many business offices there, but totally worth it. The food is delicious.

Correction: traveled in June, 2015 Had a nice business lunch here. The restaurant is small but the food is really good. Try the Chai Iced Tea.

Stopped in with the family for lunch. The chicken coconut soup was good as were the spring roles. I had the Duck Choo Chi which was tasty. I also tasted the Beef Macadamia which I liked a lot. Nothing was spectacular just good flavorful Thai. The service was good and the tables were set for lunch with tables for lunch... More

Have been several times here - very busy at lunchtime and good for dinner. Kitchen is american-thai, meaning that the meals are not really spicy, some of the original ingredients are missing and things are made for the american palate. But not bad ad all, service is very kind and I have had there a good time
