Started going here on recommendations from people at work about 10 years ago. Still the same great food today. They do dine in as well as take out. Very clean, and simple. This is a place you go for the food, very relaxed cafe' style atmosphere.

This is the best Thai food in the area. Restaurant is very clean. Each meal is made to order. If you like hot and spicy, you are going to love this. Medium hot is about all we can manage here, so be sure if you say you want it hot, hot, you really mean it. Love all of the noodle... More

Food is awesome. The reason they are slow is because they are so busy in such a little place and can only cook like 2 dishes at a time. I've been going there for 15 years and it's awesome! I miss Joy though... :-( The service was somewhat faster when she worked there.

Delicious Tom Yum soup and Gang Gai with fresh ingredients. I ordered takeout when stying in a nearby hotel and the order was ready to go ontime and was very hot. Great on a cold night! The woman who took my order was super friendly and nice, thank you!

I'm typing this review from a dining room full of people waiting for their carry out orders. The food here is mediocre, which means that it's ok for Waterford. The flavors are standard Thai. Nothing really stands out. I've ordered food here once before and had the same experience. Unfortunately I FORGOT! Try So Thai instead.

I love this restaurant. It isn't anything fancy but the food and service is excellent, the place is clean and the price you can't beat. I especially love their Gang Gai with chicken, extra spicy. They always get it just right. Wish I could get there more often now but I don't live close anymore, but every time I'm in... More

They are not the fastest Thai restaurant around but I feel like you are waiting for the quality. Everything I've ever had from here has been delicious. They are light handed on the heat so if you like it hot make sure you ask for it. The most flavorful fried rice I've ever had. Try the special Pineapple fried rice... More
