Wonderful food. Super sweet owner, nice staff. Be careful of spiciness - I love spicy and "medium" will make my eyes water! As a vegetarian I love that I have so many amazing flavors and dishes to choose from. Delightful. Don't miss this gem.

Visited many times and always enjoyed it, food is pretty standard for an American Thai restaurant. I really enjoy the appetizer selection. Lunch menu is also good and has great prices.

Loved this Thai restaurant. I love Thai food and thoroughly enjoyed it as we have no good Thai restaurants in Naples, FL. However delicious, I don't thing that the Garlic shrimp warranted $22 that it cost. It was absolutely delicious but $22 for 6 shrimp, some white rice and veggies, was a bit much. Especially since the restaurant is pretty... More

The basil duck I had for dinner was possibly the best thing I have ever eaten, anywhere! perfectly cooked, perfectly spiced, just a phenomenal experience. The others in my party each ordered different things, and while maybe not as good as the duck, all agreed the meals were exceptional.

On a recent trip to Vermont we spent several nights in Middlebury. This was some of the best Thai food we have had! Kind and friendly staff as well.

Went there for sushi, but currently not available, no Chef. we have Thai food in stead, which actually quite good for this small town. mostly fresh food, with authentic flavors, but I guarantee with College near by a sushi Chef would be a great addition for this Oriental place. Sushi with Vermont touch should be an option for Middlebury.

We stopped in here on the recommendation of a local and were so happy we took his advice. We've had lots of Thai food in DC and this could match with any of the restaurants there in flavor and freshness. I don't understand reviewers who say the place lacks in charm - were we in the same restaurant? It's in... More

Thai restaurants are few and far between in Vermont, this is a very good approximation of South East Asian cuisine. The flavors are bright and very well balanced combining many different cuisines...not totally Thai.
