“Solid Business Dinner!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 7, 2014

Staying at one of the hotels by the mall for a business meeting and didn't feel like one of the chains. Saw the good reviews and a huge Thai fan was not disappointed. The food and service were excellent. I like hot and my colleague likes mild and we were both very satisfied with the spice level. Try the coconut ice cream it was excellent. The local fire department was picking up carry out and there was a steady stream of both carry out and sit down dinners. I will definitely return when staying in Chandler.

“Cheerful place with delicious food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 3, 2013

Staying in the Chandler area on vacation we spotted this restaurant as we drove past and thought we would give it a try, and we will definitely go back again before we leave! We were taking our food to eat out and the waiter could not have been more helpful. He talked us through the menu and nothing was too much trouble. We ate seafood pad Thai and it was delicious. Thoroughly recommend to anyone.

“Best Thai food in Chandler”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 20, 2013

I love this place. It's fast, fantastically yummy, and affordable. The place is small, probably 1200 sq. ft. dining area. It's decorated with authentic Thai decor. My favorite things are the Thai curries, they are all good. For those new to Thai food there's things like Pad Thai and friend rice. Also if you are not a spice/heat fan, ask for a 1 on their 1-5 scale. The Thai chilies are very hot, so you could always add more.

“Tiny Place, Amazing Food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 30, 2013 credit card Amex Card Member Review

This is a tiny little place. However the food is amazing and very flavorful. Brings out the thai flavors with very high consistency. The service is great and quick. I recommend the red and peanut curry, pad thai, thai basil, spicy noodles. The tomyum soup is amazing too.

“Excellent Thai Food in Chandler AZ - Yea!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 16, 2013

Just discovered this gem yesterday and, being new to the area, we are thrilled to find great Thai food!!

They were already pretty busy at 11:30, and the property is not very big so it felt slightly cramped – but the food and service made up for it! All of the 20 or so lunch specials are $6.95 (with beef or prawns costing $2 more), and includes a cup of tasty soup (that I think arrived before we sat down), a flaky spring roll and a slice of orange.

The better half had the Thai Fried Rice (Khao-Pad) with egg, mixed vegetables, onions, and garlic – it was really, really good! My Spicy Noodles (pan-fried rice noodles, bean sprouts, bell pepper, broccoli, cabbage, carrots, onions, and Thai basil) was excellent and perfectly spiced @ level #3.

Service was super-efficient, and friendly.

We are already looking forward to our next visit!
