The lunch menu is easy to navigate. Pick your vegetable meal with rice or noodles and then add your choice of meat or seafood. The tables are linen covered and the staff attentive, helpful and willing to accommodate special requests and questions. Add to that the bubble tea and this was a favorite Bubble tea is basically large black tapioca,... More

Great place for just to stop by for nice lunch to a nice evening dinner. The food comes out fresh and nice presentation. Plan on coming back to try out many dishes on the menu. Can't go wrong here.

Delicious Thai food served by a gracious staff who seem genuinely delighted to see you. If somebody is celebrating a birthday, please let them know ahead of time so you can enjoy a Thai rendition of Happy Birthday! More good news--it's BYOB, making the dining experience even more affordable.

I lived in Seattle for 6 years and became quite spoiled with the quality and selection if Thai restaurants in the area. Since being back east in PA for the past 6 years, it has been very hard to find. While visiting the Poconos area we came across this little place and decided to give it a try. We were... More

The drunken noodles were lacking spice of any kind, but the green curry that I ordered was excellent, spicy and a generous portion.

We ate lunch here, the portions are a little small, but certainly enough. The quality is excellent. The service is a bit forgetful but not bad. The ambience is nice. It is a real friends or couples kind of place

I've eaten here for years and always thought the food was amazing, even after visiting Thailand. However, they should know that I'm a usual costumer and that I should be treated better then what has happened in the past. Upon entering the restaurant more then an hour before close I was asked what I wanted to eat. Yes, it was... More

I just arrived in Scranton from CA and my friends took me to Thai Rak Thai for an early dinner. OMG it was fab. I had the crispy duck that was done to perfection, the best that I have had anywhere. My friends had the drunken noodles with chicken and one with shrimp. Of course I tasted both and hands... More

My friend was in town and wanted Thai food, so we went to the only place I go on Adams Ave. The staff are very nice and polite. They are very accommodating. The atmosphere is nice, clean, and quiet. The food comes out very quickly. Everything is fresh, cooked to order, spiced as you like, and delicious. I don't like... More
