Addicted to the food and heat

Not a single dish I have ordered has been anything but delicious. The heat levels vary from cook to cook and food to food, but I order everything at their “Thai hot” level which is the hottest. It will make a great burn! My son always gets the Pad Thai which he orders at medium and loves it (not... read more

Food was not what I expected. They certainly know how to fool local people. This is not true Thai food Very gelatinous, high salt low flavor.

Perfectly flavorful, non-chain, non-commercialized Thai. Can compete with any Thai food in any metro area. Great service, and wonderful food.

Always friendly service, whether they are crowded or empty. Excellent flavor and spot on with the heat. My favorite is Panang. Good vegetarian choices as well. Good tea and soup. Never had a bad experience here.

Overall, my wife and I had a good dinner here while visiting friends in Kalamazoo. The menu had a wide array of choices so that we shared four different dishes that went beyond the noodle dishes that we normally have when we eat Thai. All the dishes were well prepared and served hot. Overall, I found the food to be... More

As a food critic, this was one of my favorite places to go when travelling out of town and would usually come for lunch. The staff treated their guests well and always checked on the food quality and took prompt action if the guest had issues or concerns on the food that was ordered.

We've been to Thailand and love Thai food. We moved from California and miss decent Thai food so much. We tried this place and got some noodles. They were drenched in sugar syrup with some hot peppers added. Blech. Maybe the rice dishes and curries are decent, but we wouldn't go back. This is not authentic Thai food- perhaps overly... More

This was the restaurant that I requested to be taken for Mothers Day, so you know that it MUST be special! We went the day before Mothers day, and arrived at about 5:00. There were two tables seated upon our arrival, but by coming early we were pretty much assured we would have a table-the place is tiny. However, what... More

This is our favorite hidden gem on Gull Road. They have great Thai food and if you order Hot, it will be HOT. I find their Medium to be about as hot as the Hot at the place on Drake. We have gotten Chicken Pad Thai and Beef Pad Prik, both are delicious. Highly recommended!

Don't be fooled by the outside. It looks like it might be just a carry out spot, but it's actually a cozy, relaxed sit down restaurant. Food is served very hot (which we love) and the spiciness is accurately described. So only opt for 'hot' if your tongue really likes the burn. I found the 'mild' to be perfect but... More
