Good food, however, you pay for that.

Quite honestly, the one menu item I am on a mission to copy is their ginger tea. It rocks. Entrees, as someone who enjoys Asian but isn't an expert, I like spice level medium to get a little zing. Fun place to go but not a good enough value for the 45-minute drive. Portions are large enough for... read more

Picture I posted of what I received was not what I thought I would get. I showed my fork with a few threads of Mung noodles, when I asked about it, waiter asked if I wanted to pay for extra bowl of noodles. CHINTZY! They substituted white rice without asking. They have no honey, but really good Jasmine tea. I... More

I always order the guey teuy kee mao. It's fantastic. My partner gets panaeng curry. Very rich and nutty. Good beer, good service. Lunch is fast. I've been coming here for years! My only complaint is the dinner prices, which are much more than lunch but serving sizes seem the same.

I have been to Thailand 3 times and this is great --a lot like what we've had over there (only they will modify the food so you don't get it as hot as in Thailand). This is our family-favorite in Madison. The Pa Nang curry with tofu is our favorite dish and is consistently a crowd-pleaser. We also really enjoy... More

On this night I ordered spring rolls, pad bai ka prao, and thai iced coffee. There had to have been meaning lost in translation. The "ka prao" I ordered was nothing like the "pad gra pow" I had come to love. The dish served was sliced beef rather than ground. Because of that I was fairly disappointed. I also did... More

Coconut milk soup was a large portion with plenty of chicken and mushrooms, but not as spicy as we've had elsewhere. Lime chicken flavor was not particularly appealing; the "lime" flavor was not evident. Waitress was lacking in personality and never returned to the table to inquire about satisfaction with the soup or entrée. We had finished before anyone returned... More

We found the menu to offer great choices, good wine specials and everything was very tasty. The decor of the restaurant was also quite inviting. We were a little surprised at how small the portions were considering we were there during dinner. My husband and I thought we could share an entree but it wasn't enough to do so. The... More

Had diner with three co-workers. I decided to have a noodle dish "Sabai Noodle" which was well flavored and well done. Two coworkers had chosen mild dishes which turned out rather dull. The vegatables didn't seem seasoned at all. On the plus side the water glasses never got the chance to get empty.

Great food and drinks. Great place to experience Thai food if you have never had it. Little pricy. I liked the Thai decoration. When I was there in the restaurant and eating the food I felt like I was back in Thailand.

I've eaten here for 15+ years and have consistently received fantastic, flavorful food at a reasonable price. The best Thai food I've ever eaten, in fact. And the staff are unfailingly pleasant. The service, however, is often slow, with the wait staff either rushing about trying to meet everyone's needs or nowhere to be found. Food can be slow to... More
