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.

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.

Over the years I eaten here with friends...currently about 1-2x a month. Have always enjoyed their food and sometimes stop to bring food home. Simple good Thai food

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
