This is the best Thai restaurant in the Buffalo area.

We've tried several Thai and Vietnamese restaurants in the Buffalo area and this one was what we were looking for. Quaint little place kinda out of the way on Transit Rd. in Depew, but worth the the short drive from airport. Simply put, the food was wonderful. Try the eggplant tempura for a... read more

Went there last night for the first time, and only the third time I had Thai and it was excellent. My wife eats Thai all the time and thought there food was extremely good. The service was good, not excellent, but good. There is a slight language barrier, but nothing that can't be overcome. I had the Goat Clay pot... More

My husband and family and I have been here several times this year. The restaurant is small, simple, quiet and clean. Everything we have tried here has been very good. Portion sizes are just enough to fill you up without taking home leftovers or being wasteful. My favorite menu items have been the curried chicken appetizer served with a fried... More

This was our first time trying this restaurant. We arrived at 5:15 on a Saturday and there was one other occupied table when we arrived. The waitress waited on us reasonably promptly and took our drink, appetizer and entree order all at once (a bit unconventional, but no big deal). Twenty minutes after our order was taken, 5 additional tables... More

I'm originally from Laos so when my wife's grandfather suggested this restaurant I was skeptical but it was very good. I had the papaya salad and burmese noodles. I asked it for very spicy and they accommodated my taste buds. It was so hot and spicy that it reminded me of how my mom made it. Service was slow, but... More

Like other reviewers the restaurant is easily missed if you're not looking for it. I been here before but I thought the Thai food is okay nothing to write home about. But the last time I visited I tried the Beef Clay Pot Rice and it was amazing. It was Jasmine Rice cooked in coconut milk and spices and serve... More

In June, the current owners had their one year anniversary in this location. The "difficult to find" stays the same. The used car dealer next door, continues to park the excess inventory in the restaurant's lot. The quality of the food remains high, with a very large selection. The Burmese chef and his wife provide individual attention. Two of us... More

The restaurant reopened June, 2013. The new owners are from Burma. We have been there 4 times, trying different dishes. The dining room is immaculate. They will tell you what dishes are Gluten-Free and which are not. The location makes it a bit difficult to find, next to a car dealer and pushed back from the road. The servers have... More

So delicious! We had the best waiter, and the dining room was lovely. Totally recommend the traditional Burmese fish and banana stem noodle soup (forget the name), Panang Curry, Pad Thai, steamed veggie dumplings, and vegetable sushi roll. The chef even made a special gluten free sauce just for us! The place just recently reopened under new management. If we... More
