Solid downtown Thai. Great value.

This solid restaurant is everything it's supposed to be. Good service, good atmosphere (if a bit basic), friendly (enough), authentic Thai, very good value. Right on THAMES street. Not necessarily a must try, but certainly a downtown Thai staple.

We both had appetizers and wound up taking leftovers home. Hubby had thai iced tea and not only was it a reasonable price but it was also free refills which I've never seen before on thai iced tea.

While on vacation for a week in May, I was able to eat or get take out 3 times. Should have been 5 times because of the selections they offer. Delicious!!

Very disappointing. Papaya salad was quite good, duck in curry was inedible, tough and tasteless. Tamarind fish also very poor. We love Thai food, if you do, avoid this restaurant.

We were lucky enough to be in walking distance from this restaurant, and we took advantage of that. There is wonderful outdoor seating and all of the food was delicious. I highly recommend the coconut shrimp and noodles.

We had the Tofu Pad Thai and Pineapple Chicken with Cashews. Both dishes were good sized and tasted great. Service was prompt and friendly. The outside seating is great and not overly crowded.

A tasty treat with good thai food. Love the lemongrass chicken soup. A definite must have if you like coconut milk. The dining room is small so I usually just do takeout and have always had a good meal.

If you're looking for an inexpensive lunch in Newport (which isn't easy to find), this place is great. They had a good variety of Thai dishes with some authenticity, although with the spice level toned way down for tourists.
