I had the red curry 10 min before closing time and not only was it fresh and delicious, the staff asked me to stay as long as I needed to enjoy my food! Lovely people and great food. Restaurant was very clean inside, plus another customer dropped his quarter in one of those things filled with water and it landed... More

We came here for lunch with a group of 10. The staff were friendly and quickly accommodated us. The menu was diverse, with spicy garlic-basil dishes, along with a good selection of noodles. All in our were pleased with their lunch. I have traveled to Thailand many times, and this was very authentic, not very tamed down for American tastes.... More

Doesn't look like much but they have good food at reasonable prices. Veggies are done right...not overcooked and mushy. Service is always with a smile and very accommodating. Could be a bit cleaner but comfortable...not nasty.

Knew there was something wrong when not a single car in the parking lot.... My husband ordered the Pad Thai. The server did not understand and was not helpful in modifying entrees for a vegetarian. I had a lemongrass chicken with peanut sauce and steamed veggies. Was that chicken or roadkill??? Mystery meat does not begin to describe it. Veggies... More

I work in Newport about twice a month lately and I pretty much eat at this restaurant every night. The food is delicious, the people are friendly, and the portions provide me with lunch the following day. I love the Basil eggplant and the green curry. I am looking forward to trying other dishes.

Simple interior nothing to write home about but the food was very good from two people with extensive SE Asian travel experience. The waiter was friendly and young, and is going to Thailand for a month this December with the restaurant's owners---great family owned place, not much to look at. Great value for what was served. Recommended!

We passed this little place driving down 101, looking for some place to eat. After a quick glance at other Tripadvisor reviews, we decided to give it a whirl. We were so glad we did! The food was excellent, with generous portions. They were able to adjust the spice level in each dish according to our individual needs. We tried... More
