Worst Thai food I have ever had. The spring rolls where supposed to contain chicken, but only had cabbage, but nice crispy she'll. soup had horrible strong taste (bleach, vinegar?), so we were afraid to eat it. Pad Thai was not bad, but not really good either.

Good Thai food, yet it is the only Thai food place on the island. They serve food cafeteria style, but still cheap enough and a way to stretch a dollar.

Huge portions so show up hungry. Just the right amount of spice and service was good. Fortunately, there are leftover boxes!

Really good and reasonably priced Thai food on San Juan Island. Staff are very friendly and attentive. Atmosphere is casual. Very interesting dishes- suggest to order family style and try different dishes. Recommend the garlic salmon. Enjoy!

I am very happy with this place and they are willing to make the accommodations for customers with special requests and food sensitivities. The staff is always most pleasant and prompt.

My favorites were the fresh spring rolls but I have been unable to find them until I visited the Golden Triangle at San Juan Island.

The place was pretty packed when we went, so service was a bit slow, but we weren't in a rush. The... More
