Fresh and fast

Great little restaurant with a cozy dining room and take out available. You won't have long to wait for your food, but the meats are so tender....like they've been slow cooked for hours. We love their Panang curry and chicken satay. The BBQ beef and homemade coconut ice cream are also yummy. It's... read more

There is a reason why this restaurant has outlasted all of the other wannabes at this location. The food is good and the pricing is reasonable. The massaman and Pad Thai are both good. Save room for dessert - it's authentic as well and worth it!

Is local Thai restaurant has been a very pleasant luncheon site over the past year. It is almost always full between noon and 2 o'clock. Excellent service, very clean premises, delicious smells. I can strongly recommend the pad Thai.

The crispy duck was amazing! Other dishes for our group were also great. I am looking forward to going back!

Over-priced, over-cooked, under-seasoned, under-sized portions. I asked for additional spice and it was still barely up to par with any other Thai restaurant. For their big pricesand small portions you can take your money and find a much better place, probably without the attitude you get as well.

This is a local favorite and even during the week this relatively small place fills up because the food is consistently good. Call ahead so you don't need to wait for a table (though they don't take reservations). The food is all delicious. Favorites include the duck with sweet and sour chili pepper (not at all spicy), Gao salmon, braised... More

We are here at lunch and ordered lunch specials. The service was very good. All the food tasted fresh. The place was very clean. They offer off-street parking. We'll definitely come back.

Food, appetizers and drinks were awesome, and I also great for takeout! The spare ribs masaman will melt in your mouth and the Kao Soi has an amazing coconut curry dish. I've given up meat recently and now have the same dishes in tofu or vegetables, and still delicious!

We have been here several times, and the one world that comes to mind is consistency. Consistently great. The Thai red and Green sauces are authentic. The Spicy Shrimp dinner is fantastic and not to spicy just a kick, The duck is great, so good it may sell out. Try the Thai Spare ribs and calimari for appetizers. The outside... More

We sat outside. Our friends loved it but I found the constant traffic noise from cars stopped just a few feet from our table disconcerting and at times when a horn blew or a motorcycle went by downright disruptive . Food was loved by most but I was disappointed in my meal (the short ribs) as was my friend who... More
