Delicious Pad Thai

Wonderful lunch with my wife. Awesome Pad Thai that was large enough to share especially since they serve free soup at lunch. Plenty of seating for a strip mall restaurant.

First time at the establishment.. We got t the roti chicken curry. Good flavor, roti is way way too greasy. But for McKinney, it is pretty good, not frozen like some chains we have. Service for some reason was poor

My husband and I stopped in for a quick bite on a rare date night. After many meals of traditional Texas fare, BBQ, catfish, etc. we were delighted to find such an authentic Thai restaurant. The food was fresh, fast and hot. The crab rangoons were delectable. My husband tried a noodle dish and I opted for the rice. We... More

Cute little interior and food is SO good! Had Pad thai and husband had sriacha stir fry, both flavorful, and the peanut soup they give when you arrive is yummy! Inexpensive lunch, white meat chicken, and great service-highly recommend!

Wow, the food at Noodle Wave was great!! We had family visiting from California and they suggested that we try Noodle Wave. I have never been a huge fan of Thai food, but Noodle Wave sure did change my opinion. The soup that they bring you at lunch before your meal is great, and complimentary. Two people at our table...

This restaurant has become my family's go to spot. Love that you may order your meal on a hotness scale. We like our food spicy so 3 is just right. Save room for dessert. Coconut ice cream is divine.

This place is CLEAN and food is excellent. Uses fresh made to order. The southern coconut curry is the best dish.

The curry I got was extremely tasty and I actually enjoyed it immensely. The bad thing about curry, I guess, is that it is strong enough in flavor to cover anything "off." I got horrifying food poisoning right after eating here.

This is a small chain restaurant, but you would never know it was a chain. The interior decor is a modern-Asian theme. Well done. The service is always prompt. But it is the food that keeps us coming back. Dishes labeled 'hot' are heart attack inducing fiery hot. But there are other less tongue scorching alternatives most everyone will love.... More

Accompanied my family members to discover a super ethnic halal food outlet. Food was nice but above all the staff was cooperative and courteous, specially the Nepalese girl who serve our table.
