Best Thai Food In Town!

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... read 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

Ordered pad kee mao and as far the usual taste with lots of Thai basil it tasted like super bland stir fry Chinese noodle dish. 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!

We eat here often because they are kid friendly, reasonably priced and the food is consistantly good. My son loves the fried tofu and sticky rice!

Their pad thai and pad see ieu are good (especially the pad see ieu), and prices are all around $9 I think it is for a good sized meal. Sometimes the restaurant is a little cold in the winter and I've had to leave my coat on, but not too too bad. The decor is interesting, but it is nice... More

Previous reviews were right on! Pad Khing Chicken & Pad Basil chicken with spice level at 3 & 4 were excellent meals. The rice soaked up the juices and the last to drive down the throat. Waitress was very sweet and explained it all to us. Couldn't have eaten another bite we were so stuffed. We'll return! ! !
