Very Ordinary Thai food

Tried it after reading other reviews. The pad chicken was good, but the two other dishes tried noodles in green curry and another plate of noodles were below average.

We stopped here for lunch--so glad we did! Varied menu with lots of options. We had fresh basil rolls and chicken sate for appetizers. The basil rolls were AWESOME and super refreshing. The chicken sates were kinda small and a bit skimpy, but very flavorful. Both of our entrees were excellent! Happy we visited and will return for future meals... More

This place was a major letdown to me. They're clean and neat, and bland, hence the comparison to hospital food. Nothing wrong with the quality, but the taste is missing. I visited them on two separate occasions and it's the same. That's good news if you like the food here, as you know it will never change.

Nice quaint location. Food very good and service as well. It is nice they let you choose your heat spice level 1-4. I wish I lived near here.

Excellent food, gracious employees and did I mention great food????? The pad see eww is fantastic along with the kee Mao noodle, and the lamb gai. The Thai tea is to die for and the tom ka soup is delicious. One of my favorite places to go

In many respects i wouldnt say the food was much different from any other thai restaurant i've been to; however the staff were very quick to serve and very accomodating so i'd rate it above average for that reason alone.

Had dinner here with niece when we stayed at the nearby Embassy Suites before a cross country race. Service/staff were great, but unfortunately the food didn't measure up. We started with Basil Spring Rolls which were the best part of the meal. They were flavorful and the dipping sauce was good. Niece ordered Pad Thai (she's learning to enjoy Thai... More

This place is a hole-in-the-wall located in a shopping center, with excellent Thai food. I ate there once, but the meal was a knockout. Grrreat soup and seafood. If you are in Cary, NC, it is definitely worth a visit.

Service was a bit slow albeit friendly. Dished were large and could be split. On a weekend no "lunch" sized portions are offered, just the more expensive "Dinner" size but you can split with another. Pad Thai is good, so are the spring rolls but they are a but full of lettuce. Not too shabby for the prices. If you... More
