Good Thai

I just love their Basil Rolls. I always order extras to take home. I haven't been disappointed with each dish I have ordered. I usually take the order home as the interior isn't that enjoyable. But I do love their food!

New year's day at 6pm. Only one other couple in the restaurant. Seated right away. Wait staff was fast and informative about the menu. Ordered the fresh spring rolls. They arrived in less than 5 minutes with my water. They contained tofu, cabbage, carrot, basil, cucumber and noodles. They were fresh, crunchy veggies inside and wrapped nicely served chilled with...

I went here last Saturday with my boyfriend; it is one of two Thai places in Chattanooga that I hadn't tried yet. First of all, the décor is extremely cozy, and there are traditional seating arrangements (kneeling on the floor) available by request for patrons. We chose to eat at a regular table, however, and first ordered drinks. I tried... More

It was our first time and define rely last time. After a long waiting time, we saw food in small bowls. The curry looked nasty and tasted the same. I could see part of the kitchen from my table and it looked dirty. Food overpriced.

We loved the food! Delish with a good vegetarian selection. The ambiance however, had much to be desired. The service was good.

My wife and I ordered the shrimp wrapped in egg roll wrappers and fried. This was served with a sauce I guessed to be made of duck sauce, pepper, and maybe a rice wine vinegar? I am unsure. My wife loved it. The shrimp here are large and they have a good flavor. Next we ordered Tom Yum Goong and... More

This is our favorite Thai restaurant that we've ever tried. Wish we lived closer and could eat there every week. We stop in when we're in town and really looked forward to the next trip. Very good flavor and excellent choices on the menu. Great service. Loved it!

Love the owners. Eat there several times each month. Have had better elsewhere but this is one of my favorites for Thai in Chattanooga. They try hard and are very friendly. If you want a quick in and out, this isn't it. If you want a good Thai meal...give it a shot.

I have to say this is the best Thai in this town. Although I'm not wowed by it. The rice is overlooked and mushy and an add-on price. Their food has more depth of flavor than their competitors and seems more authentic to me. The owner will make you dishes not on the menu. Just tell her what you're craving.... More
