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

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 leftovers which... 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

I had the Mus-Mun curry with cinnamon, onion, coriander, anise, cumin, potato, apple, peanut and chicken. I told the waitress it was so good that I could eat it every day. I have eaten here a number of times and it is always very good.

Good atmosphere. Good service. Chicken Satay tastes really delicious. I also like Bangkok swap cocktail.

Lovely atmosphere, reasonable prices and good food. Had the Pad Ped with shrimp and it was excellent. Tons of veggies perfectly cooked. Tasted wonderful. My husband's noodle dish was good too.

I prefer this restaurant over the Sa Bai Thong on Univ Ave. I find all of the food very sweet, even more so at Univ Ace. This is a very pretty place with a peaceful feel. The menu is comprehensive - lots to choose from. We knew we wanted to swap bites, so we picked three dishes that sounded distinct.... More

This restaurant, and its sister on University Ave., get voted "Best of Madison." I am a rather cosmopolitan person, so find the food only average. I would describe it as mid-West, Caucasian American style Thai food, so I could see how folks with less global palates would really like this place. I found my dish - fried shrimp with chili... More
