Okay...

I feel almost bad for giving This place a three because the staff were so sweet and enjoyable, but the food was a bit mediocre to me...not bad, just not the greatest.

One of my favorite restaurants! I have never had a bad meal at this restaurant. Wonderful service, pleasant atmosphere, always clean, the best Thai food I have ever had. Was there yesterday with my daughter for an early Mother's Day celebration. ordered Tom Kai soup and masaman curry. The flavors were so wonderful I was making moaning noises and my... More

Had dinner with friends here on April 15. My wife and I each had the Pad Thai preceded by the hot-and-sour type soup. The place is clean and the service was very friendly and welcoming but the food is pretty mediocre. The soup had a couple of pieces of hardened stalk which really shouldn't be present. The noodles in the... More

This is as good as any metro area Thai restaurant. Their meals are all prepared perfectly, and the portions are generous. It's a regular choice for take out for us and even though it's not on the menu, ask for the cucumber salad. It's made in a sweet syrup, so if you're trying to avoid the sugar, it might not... More

A nice place to stop in for an authentic Thai meal. Though sometimes missing the galangal or lemongrass the food is still freshly prepared and there is always my favorite "sticky rice "

It's the atmosphere that gets you when you walk through the door. Then the aromas, and the incredibly wonderful service provided by Gift and the other family members who make your visit so special. Ah yes, and the food itself is also memorable. Try it!

We have eaten there a few times and have really enjoyed our meals. Food tastes great. Service is friendly good. The place is certainly not fancy on the outside nor on the inside, but it is adequate. The food by far exceeds the appearance. Good flavors and enjoyable food.

The restaurant is a little dated but the food is excellent. It is always so fresh. I love the soup they usually serve before your meal. Price is very reasonable. This is worth a stop as you pass thru this central Oregon coast town or if you are a local don't miss a chance for a great meal here.

Though it has been awhile since I have visited this restaurant, it is still one of the best for Thai food I have eaten at. Their food is fresh and hot. Priced reasonably.

My favorite is the Hawaiian Rice, and their chicken noodle soup is the best soup when I don't feel well. They have a very friendly staff, I think I've taken everyone I know there at least once. I also think it's better then Noodle Cafe across the street.
