Nice place

Went in for lunch, I think there was only one waitress, and she was hustling, but didn't have too long a wait. Had steamed dumplings, but I was craving fried, which they happily accommodated, for appetizer, came out fast and were good. Ordered a noodle dish, not spicy as hoped but was tasty. I... read more

I can't speak to the food because we left without ever ordering. The restaurant wasnt very busy. The waitstaff was simply unorganized. After seating ourself and getting menus, we waited...and waited. Finally, we decided to exit stage left and go elsewhere.

I've enjoyed trying all the different Thai restaurants St. Louis City has to offer... but hands down, this one is the very best. From their appetizers to their main course offerings, to the beverages that they stock... everything is exceptional. They also have the best chicken dumplings I've ever tasted anywhere. Family owned and operated... this is the place to... More

Met a friend here for dinner. As a calorie counter trying to lose weight, this was the perfect place. I ordered the Garlic chicken and the meal was fresh and light and filling and I didn't have to feel guilty for eating it. I like that chopsticks were on the table along with forks. I didn't have to ask for... More

This is not the first time I visited this restaurant, however it is my first time trying their soup. Me and my mom ordered a large size tom yum kung soup and beef salad. It is the worst tom yum ever. It was luke warm and tasted almost like fish sauce straight out of the bottle. Nasty! For almost $10... More

I wanted kee mao with fresh tons of basil and I ordered it thai hot not wimpy hot! Also ordered pad Thai and barely tasted tamarind or paprika in the dish. I'm so bent about... More

The food was not bad but it was not outstanding either. I ordered a very average Thai dish, Pad Thai with shrimp, that I love and order a lot when I go to Thai restaurants. This dish was made with very thin, spaghetti like rice noodles. I have usually had this prepared with a wider rice noodle?? The flavor was... More

Great Thai food and can't go wrong eating in or getting takeout. My roommates and I have been frequent diners at this restaurant. We usually go for dinner and entrees are very reasonably priced. We always have a wonderful time here and always enjoy the entrees we get!
