Looks like a dive, but the best Thai in Lubbock.

We've been to all the Thai restaurants in town and this really is the best. Be careful about asking for spicy unless you REALLY want it.

First time eating at this restaurant in about 5 years...not because I don't like it, but simply because I'm never on this side of town. Even after 5 years, the food remains very good. Had the combination fried rice and egg rolls as an appetizer, both were great. I consider this small place a hole in the wall, but it's... More

I lived in Lubbock for a few years in college, and this was on of my favorite spots. Try the shrimp eggrolls.

Roadtrip to the west coast... visit 2. Still en route. Left Memphis, stopped in a podunk place I can't remember outside of Amarillo, small town, great food. Can't remember the name... :banghead: Ended up in Lubbock, Texas. Wanted oriental and we found a hole in the wall cafe next to a 7-11. You don't go here for a bar, or... More

If you're over by Texas Tech, and are into real, authentic Thai cuisine-pop in. Be prepared to wait a little while if you go during lunch or dinner rush, but even if you do decide not to wait for off hours and take your chances with the college and business crowds, it is worth the wait!

We were in Lubbock for a campus tour. I was texting my pet sitter in Dallas and she recommended this place. I am so happy she did. I am not afraid of dives, so that almost made me happy as I know they are some of the best places. This place did not disappoint. As we ordered we read the... More

This place does not exist because of the atmosphere. The place looks like a diner from a Law and Order episode. The hours are erratic. The clientele is regulars with occasional college kids. But the food is the reason I keep going back. I am particularly found of Tom Kha Gai or Chicken Coconut Soup. I order mine hot. I... More

Hole in the wall Thai food joint! We were looking for it and completely passed it. Drove up & parked with 2nd thoughts. The food is totally fantastic! Small places usually are always authentic and the best and this is no exception! Give it a try!

Great Thai food, very authentic and reasonable. The ambiance sucks, but the food speaks for itself! :-)
