Romantic little place...

This is a very sweet and unique place to go. It is run by a lovely older couple, who make it feel like you have dropped in for dinner. Romantic and sweet atmosphere. The food is always excellent, the wait staff is great. Sometimes it can be slow for dinner to arrive, so enjoy a drink while you... read more

The Omni staff recommended this restaurant and it was better than I could have hoped for. The absolute best food we had all week. A dinner for four cost us just over $100, but it was so worth it. The husband and wife team were very friendly, as was their niece who was helping out that evening. The cook (wife)... More

The waiters were kind and helpful. They charged two of us 20% gratuity on top of it $3. It's ridiculous. The chef was rude. The chef was herself the owner. Too much over priced for the what they offer not friendly at all..

I read so many good things about this place on TripAdvisor I couldn’t wait to get there. The only thing was, we waited for over 1.5 hours for our food! I’m not sure if they got unexpectedly slammed or if they were understaffed, but either way it ruined our experience. The food, once it arrived was beyond excellent, but it... More

I am not a Thai food fan but went with friends. I was very impressed with the way the restaurant looked. Linens and wine glasses on the table. They seemed to be busier than what they expected. We had to wait longer than what I cared for, would have given them a 4.75 :) but it was mainly drinks that... More

First impression/Value: - I was in shock when I flipped open the menu. Each individual entrée/dish ranges from $15 to 30. Thought we ended up in "another tourist trap" place. - As a general customer going to a Thai place, you might have an expectation that you can order several Thai fresh dishes, yummy soup to share at a reasonable...

This year was our third annual trip to Corpus, and we went back to the restaurant we had stumbled upon a few years back. The chef came out of the kitchen and had recognized us (!!). We ordered a curry and a chicken entree. Both were superb! The curry comes inside a coconut with rice on the side and a... More

curry here is definitely outstanding! definitely should have a try here. please try curry, don't try pad thai. The price is kind of high but reasonable since the seasoning is not easy to get in CC.

If you like curry then OMG!!!! The have red, green and yellow and if you are dining in then it will be served a baby coconut. If you haven't ever enjoyed the meat from inside of the baby coconut then you are missing out on something so unique and delicious. The owners greet me every time I go in. The... More

This is a longtime family owned business in Corpus Christi, and the owners' dedication shows. Penne is a masterful chef, and her balances of flavors make every meal I've had there delicious. They also put a lot of work into presentation, and each dish is as beautiful as it is tasty. The absolute highlight of the menu for me is... More
