I got the yellow curry, would have liked it to be spicier but it was very good. Ordered it to go (staying at Holiday Inn) and it took 45 minutes. While I was waiting I heard two different groups of people complaining about how long it took. I would go again just allow extra time.

We live here and so we know the restaurants. We eat here regularly because the food is authentic, the owners, Paul and Pennee are Thai, and the meals are consistently good. I like to eat here for lunch when I'm downtown. The soup and pot stickers that accompany the meal are fabulous. Of all the dishes, green curry is my... More

Thai Tilapia was cooked with tropical fruit. Out of this world. The best! The chicken satay on metal skewers was smothered in the best spicy peanut sauce.

We were in Corpus for a conference and hungry. The restaurant isn't far from the convention center, it was an easy walk. We were seated immediately, the restaurant was getting full, yet we had good quick service. I am a vegetarian, I ordered the vegetarian version of the red curry and when it came there was an audible gasp of... More

It seemed like a good place in downtown. The servers were nice. But we had to wait an hour for the appetizer and were then informed we would have to wait another hour for the main course. We decided to leave before that. The restaurant wasnt full but they were seriously short handed. The owner/manager was waiting the tables, cooking... More

Been in regularly and the owners/chef are always so gracious and accommodating. The green curry has a gorgeous presentation and is some of the best I have ever had!

Restaurants fall generally into two braod categories: those that run on autopilot, and the one whose owners' very lives revolve around the eatery. One of my favorites in Madrid is a gourmet establishment staffed entirely by two: the wife runs the kitchen and her tuxedo-clad husband presides over the dining room. Paul Pennee's incredible Thai Spice, sitting in the shadows... More

We came to this restaurant as it is a walking distance from the hotel we stayed in. It was before 8p.m. and we were seated right away at the corner. We waited for a while and had to call someone to get our orders. Orders were placed, so we kinda chill and drinks were served after a few minutes and... More

Highly recommend this restaurant. Excellent food, service and value. Owner is professional and makes you feel at home in his restaurant. Food won't disappoint! You will certainly walk out feeling satisfied and full. Will be back for sure when we are next in Corpus!
