Friendly family with great food

We went here just for a late dinner. It's a very simple setup with lots of variety. You won't have a lot of typical "Chinese American" menu items. They have a fabulous peanut sauce. Their foods are exciting and fresh. The owners are very hands-on and friendly.

Amazingly authentic food! Do not be deceived by the tiny place, this is WORTH the drive, worth putting in a reservation for. Service is very personal and friendly. We drive 45 minutes to get here, and it's one of our top favorites!

This place is a true gem of a restaurant. Family owned and operated, it's a unique blend of Thai and Vietnamese food which warms your tummy and your soul. I've had almost everything on the menu and it is all truly outstanding and made with lots of love. The building might not look like much, but the food is some... More

We came here after reading the reviews on Yelp. It was Friday Night and the place was PACKED!! It'd be a good idea to make a reservation on Friday/Saturday nights. I tried the Musaman Curry with chicken & steamed rice. It was PERFECTLY COOKED. Although the place was busy as hell not one of the staff showed any sign of... More

I go to this restaurant a couple of times a month--sometimes more often--as it consistently serves up great Asian fusion food at reasonable prices and with friendly service. Yes, it's small and the acoustics aren't great but a request to adjust a dish to your specifications (e.g., no onion, more spice, crispier tofu) is always met with a smile. Some... More

This was my favorite place when I lived here 2009-2011 and I still try to make it in each trip to or through York if only for carry out. This is truly a family run place but there don't seem to be as many family members cooking as in the past. This trip the coconut broth soup was way too... More

I visit frequently for lunch and have hired used the restaurant to cater a party. The food is outstanding and, I think, quite genuine. It's not fancy. The tables are old and not always completely flat on the floor. The acoustics are poor. But, if you know to expect that and just want good Thai food at good prices, this... More

The mango juice, egg rolls and lemongrass chicken were out of this world. It was packed and now I know why. It's worth the wait for a table just be patient.

This is a quaint place with really nice staff and service. However, the food was disappointing. It's Viet and Thai but it's neither a fusion of the two nor complete separate tasteful dishes. Instead, it tastes more like a cook (not a chef) threw traditional Asian food ingredients into a pot and called it home cooking. But it's the kind... More
