Authentic Thai food

My aunt was looking for Asian food after doing the hop on hop off tour. We look over the menu first which was posted outside of the restaurant. We liked it and we tried it. We were not disappointed. My brother ordered a noodle soup. Taste good better than the Vietnamese Pho. Me and my aunt ordered... read more

The service was friendly and the Pad Thai was excellent-they give you peanuts at the table! Outstanding.

Food is delicious and authentic but a lot of MSG used. Would rate the food as 6 half upon 10. Prices is also on the high side. Regular Noodles and soup with tips per person is approx usd$20. Not much service from the service staff. I think most of the Thai restaurants around this area is abt the same standards.

Providing that I've had better, I thought the food here was okay. I would say it was more americanized than some other places I've been to. The soup didn't have a lot of flavor. My pad thai wasn't bad but it didn't have the "wow" factor either. We shared 4 different dishes between my friends and I and again, none... More

We went for the soup, but loved the Pad Thai. The service was excellent, however, there was a slight language barrier. At first we thought we would have to wait forever to get a table because it was so packed. However, there is an upstairs dining area so we only waited about 10 minutes to be seated. The decor is...

The place was a bit small and cozy but we came early to avoid the dinner rush. The salon was painted in pink and purple, so reminiscent of the colors associated with Thai silk. They served authentic Thai food, which was served piping hot and the soups were flavorful. Spicy entrees were enough to clear your sinuses but there were... More
