Great for Dinner!

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

Quaint little restaurant, relaxing ambiance, great service. This is my favorite Thai restaurant in Kalamazoo. They have a good menus with plenty of selection. They are accurate with their heat index scale. They also have a nice selection of bear and wine. I come here quite frequently and never been disappointed.

This is a local family run restaurant located in a small strip mall off of Gull road. This is the best authentic Thai food in Kalamazoo. The Bangkok Chicken is killer and any dish can be made as spicy as you want it. The hot here is really nice and the Thai hot will not disappoint those looking for a... More
