Favorite spot for a taste of Thai food, freshly prepared, interesting choices,always good service. Unpretentious converted gas station with outside seating and comfy, low-lighting seating inside.

If I had to sum up this review it would be: Good food, good service, fair price, and very friendly people. My wife and I picked up our daughter (who has a limited lunch period) and went there on a week day. We were greeted by a very friendly man at the door and immediately escorted back to a table....

It seems every town has a Thai restaurant but we have the best! Wonderful fresh food in a clean, friendly, relaxed atmosphere. The dumplings are my favorite and I love the Thai Iced Tea.

A wonderful greeting by a happy Thai man, fantastic Thai food, and flavors from the Chang country itself. If you like Thai or want to try something new, you'll be happy with this choice. Free wifi and loads of options. Vegetarian options.

We ate an evening meal outdoors and loved it. Service got a little slow when business picked up. Popular local place.

This is a very unassuming looking restaurant, but well worth the visit for lunch or dinner. We had dinner there with friends and thoroughly enjoyed our healthy and tasty Thai meals. You have a large selection of preparations to go with, or without, your choice of meats or fish. Of course you also can choose from the specials entrees on... More

Decided to take a chance on a Thai restaurant. We were greeted by a very nice gentlemen (the owner?) who was both friendly and entertaining. Although the restaurant is located next to a busy road, the outside court yard is tastefully done in Thai decor. I really liked the outdoor seating. Lots of noodle, curry and rice dish options. Started... More

Stopped by on a recommendation and so happy we did. The prices for lunch is very reasonable and it was plenty of food. We had the Tom Kha (coconut soup) with tofu and it was one of the best we have tried. Then we had the Pineapple Curry with tofu and Spicy Veggie with extra veggies. Both were wonderful and... More

I had the cashew nut chicken (although it's not called that on the menu) and it was very flavorful. My mom had the Tom Yum soup and said it was some of the best she's ever had (and she's been to Thailand!) and the green curry. I'd definitely recommend this place, although maybe not on stuffy days -- the A/C... More

We arrived in the early afternoon, and was immediately greeted by a smiling gentleman who appeared to be the owner. He asked if we would like to eat on the patio, which we did. The patio was clean and only partially enclosed, with ceiling fans overhead. We were immediately served ice water, and ordered the Thai iced tea. The tea... More
