Favourite dishes are the pineapple fried rice, the pad thai, and the red curry. Good Thai iced tea, as well. This is some of the fastest Thai food you'll ever have. It's not a detour-worthy place, but good.

Restaurant is deceivingly bigger than it looks from the outside. It's also hard to miss with that lavender color. The lavender does not end on the outside, as you are greeted with lavender walls throughout the restaurant. It will definitely, "brighten" up your spirits while you eat.

Pad Kee Mao with shrimp. Nice and spicy - I eat it every time I come. I have also enjoyed their spring rolls - crispy with just the right amount of oil. The hot tea is delicious, flowery and light.

Everything we've ever ordered here was super tasty and the portions are large! Leftovers still taste yummy after 2 days! (and I don't like leftovers) Staff super friendly, warm, and helpful! Try the coconut soup!

This is absolutely the best Thai, especially the duck soup. The food is light and fresh, the dining room pretty, the servers attentive. I wish I still lived in Sf to eat here more often

Cheap, Fast and Yummy. Had the Roasted Duck Leg + Flat rice noodle- Yummy! Soup was delicious. Also had he crab fried rice- very tasty. Definitely a great choice for cheap eats, esp when the food is ready in less than 7 mins- every time!

The food is pretty good, but the service is fast. I still can't believe how fast the food gets to our table after we order it. That and it opens late makes this one of my favorite places to go to eat Thai food.
