Stopped by for dinner and enjoyed everything about the visit. Lot's of free parking, spacious restaurant with nice ambiance, and the staff extremely friendly and courteous. The food was very delicious, especially the Duck. They did get busy quickly so you might want to make a reservation.

We ordered take out and found the overall meal to be tasty. We ordered both meals HOT. We love spicy food and typically order thai food HOT or 1-star.

We stopped by for lunch. The place was pretty quiet when we arrived, but quickly filled up with tourists and locals. Food arrived quickly and was pretty tasty. Servers were friendly, although they seemed a but overwhelmed once the restaurant got busy.

Lovely thia food very tasty. We ordered the Pineapple fried rice which is served in half a pineapple looked and tasted great and we also had a beef rending also delicious.
