Very good local Thai

Food is great but at times inconsistent as far as spice goes. I order the same stuff and i like spicy food but sometimes it's just spicy and other times it's nuclear spicy. When you ask to just make it regular spicy they just go ahead and make it not spicy. I realize some peppers are spicier than... read more

Atmosphere is pleasant, but service leaves much to be desired. It is unfortunate that I must contradict the rave reviews given for this place. We had the appetizer for two, a bit greasy, but tasty. For my entree I ordered Salmon with alleged garlic sauce (bland), my husband had Pad Med with chicken, The taste was again, bland nothing special.... More

We moved to Florida a year and a half ago and while we've found a couple of decent Thai places, nothing we've found measures up to this place both in quality and value. Lunch specials include soup and salad and range mostly from 7.50 to 9.50 and it's a good sized portion. The minced chicken kaprow and spicy noodle dishes... More

Excellent Thai food and BYOB. Try the green papaya salad to start. Pad Thai is excellent, as are the duck dishes, and there are a number of other choices including the curries. We had not been here for a long time, but were glad to rediscover it and find out that the quality is still very high.

This place makes great Thai food and you have them make it as hot or mild as you want. I have taken my friends who think are afraid of any spices and my friends who want to have their mouths burned off and everyone has been equally happy. Just tell them what you want and they will do it. It... More

We were looking for a good Thai restaurant and our neighbors took us here. Food was very flavorful and not spicy which my wife liked. I ordered a dish that said moderate heat and there was very little. I would have preferred some heat. That was my only complaint. All 4 dishes were tasty. A soup was delicious, steamed dumplings...

Don't let the dowdy exterior put you off. This BYOB Thai restaurant offers a pleasant environment with nice service. Steamed dumplings are excellent. Duck dishes very good and most dishes seem authentic enough lots of curries and spices. Prices seem s tad high. Unfortunate use of restaurant steam table veggies in some dishes
