The food here is just delicious, and is fresh and tasty. They have a large selection of entrees on the lunch menu and you add your choice of meat/seafood/vegetarian to the entrees, so you get exactly what you want. Lunch entrees are served with soup, salad, egg rolls and wontons. They also offer daily specials which are listed on the... More

This is another favorite when I am in the area. I love spicy food, and would still give a warning here. At our local Thai place (not this one), I order an "8" on the spice level. Here, that level did me in! I had tears in my eyes from the heat, but I was in heaven. Although the spice... More

We love this Thai restaurant, BUT we are used to ordering a 7 on a scale of 1 to 10 for spiciness. Unfortunately, a 7 at this restaurant is SO hot it's inedible! Luckily our server took pity on us and brought us out new meals with less spice! So now we order a 4, and it's REALLY spicy. So... More

The ingredients are a great medley of vegetables, noodles and chicken. But the ginger dressing is out of this world. We could eat this salad as... More

The service is excellent. They have a lunch special which is a set number of courses but you get to choose your mains. This is very cheap between 10 to 14 bucks, very tasty and filling. I absolutely loved all the coconut based gravies, especially the mango and the green one. I also like it when the waiters make you... More
